Dick Hyman Forever!

Kick off the festival with a swinging celebration of piano giant Dick Hyman in his 90th year.

The NEA Jazz Master and former Jazz in July artistic director is joined by his longtime keyboard companions Bill Charlap and Ted Rosenthal — and the timeless vocals of Sandy Stewart. With clarinet virtuoso Ken Peplowski and a rhythm section featuring the great Dennis Mackrel on drums and Jay Leonhart on bass, we salute the master, from his unique versions of beloved standards to his brilliant originals. Here’s to you, Dick!
