This rare duo concert will feature our adored current and former Jazz in July artistic directors.
Come hear Dick, the NEA Jazz Master widely regarded as “one of jazz’s most spellbinding virtuosos” (Wall Street Journal) and Bill, the Grammy Award-winning musician whose artistry Downbeat calls “a master class in, well, class” in an evening of virtuoso duo piano improvisations on standards. Got a favorite song? They’ll also be taking requests!
“Hyman (is) the living, breathing, swinging encyclopedia of jazz piano history, from ragtime and stride to bebop and beyond.” (NPR)
“Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved… no matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence.” (TIME magazine)
