• Description
The 1998 Oregon Festival of American Music concludes with an over-the-top evening that will pay tribute to two home-grown American musical genres closely related to jazz – the Blues, which arose along side and eventually transformed jazz, and Swing. For this phenomenal evening Dick Hyman has invited Kansas City Jazz legend Jay McShann, the extraordinary New Orleans pianist and boogie woogie stylist Henry Butler, and the Queen of Rhythm ‘n’ Blues herself, Ruth Brown. Backed up by The Dick Hyman Trio (Hyman, Frank Capp, and Michael Moore) and trumpet Byron Stripling, this jazz-swing-blues powerhouse will deliver an evening of hot American music not to be missed!
