Amina Figarova: Newport Jazz 2010

From Azerbaijan to the Netherlands, with a detour in the U.S. — it's the career path of pianist Amina Figarova. Somewhere along the way, she discovered her compositional calling updating the knotty, post-bebop jazz popularized in the 1960s. With her touring sextet of Dutch players, she made a U.S. tour stop at the CareFusion Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
