Jason Moran and Vijay Iyer (pictured) are past winners of much-coveted MacArthur Fellowships (aka "the genius grant"), and both have developed accompanying reputations as deep thinkers.
For this week's "Music Education Monday," here's a small window into the minds of both men, via a video of a joint masterclass they did in September 2014 at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Moran is a member of the NEC faculty, while Iyer is now a professor at Harvard in nearby Cambridge, MA.
Monday Recommendation: John Coltrane
