OFAM Jazz Advisor Emeritus Dick Hyman does what he does absolutely best in this survey of the great jazz pianists of the late '20s through mid-'40s from James P. Johnson and Jelly Roll Morton to Johnny Guarnieri and Duke Ellington, with a host of giants of the ivories along the way, including George Gershwin, Fats Waller, Meade Lux Lewis, Teddy Wilson, Bob Zurke, Art Tatum, Willie "The Lion" Smith, Earl Hines and more!
Look for Ken Peplowski on clarinet on a few numbers in this program as well!
