Randolph Edward "Randy" Weston (April 6, 1926 – September 1, 2018) was an American jazz pianist and composer whose creativity was inspired by his ancestral African connection. Weston's piano style owed much to Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk, whom he cited in a 2018 video as among pianists he counted as influences, as well as Count Basie, Nat King Cole and Earl Hines. Beginning in the 1950s, Weston worked often with trombonist and arranger Melba Liston.

Randy Weston - African Sunrise: Selections from "The Spirits. Tanjah, released in 1973, found Weston mixing jazz, African music and some influences from the fusion styles of the day. The result is one of the better albums of the fusion era, an album totally devoid of the excesses that were often the pitfalls of that time. This is subtle groove music driven by thick layers of poly-rhythmic percussion and backed by a colorful nineteen piece orchestra. Some possible comparisons might include the music of Pharoh Sanders or early Lonnie Liston Smith, but there is a appealing casual lightness to Weston’s music that sets him apart.
