About Samora: Artists like Samora Pinderhughes occupy that sliver of real estate which inhabits both talent and that certain something you can't quite name, but you immediately recognize its presence. These visionaries easily set themselves apart from the musical chaff. Pianist. Composer. Bandleader. Singer. Samora is a graduate of Juillard's prestigious Jazz Program where he received his Bachelors of Music degree. The Bay Area-native has shared stages with the likes of Ron Carter, Christian Scott and Branford Marsalis and has performed his original compositions all over the world including Cuba, Australia and in the States. For the past ﬁve years, Samora has been ﬁne-tuning his large-scale composition "The Transformations Suite" in numerous live settings. The hour-long suite is a tapestry of music, theater and poetry united to invoke social change and will be released as an album in the fall. The second installment of this two-part interview features a Talk Music Talk exclusive: the recorded premiere of "Transformation", the opening song on the album.
