The Elegant Piano: Teddy Wilson, Tommy Flanagan and Hank Jones

When you talk about elegant jazz piano, you’re talking about the late, great Teddy Wilson, whose lyrical style influenced fellow masters Tommy Flanagan and Hank Jones.

And now NEA Jazz Master Dick Hyman is here to honor these piano giants — and he’s joined by a trio of pianists of the refined Wilson school: Bill Charlap, Aaron Diehl and Rossano Sportiello. Together with clarinetist Ken Peplowski and the rhythm section of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, they’ll bring you “After You’ve Gone,” “Willow Weep for Me, “It Had to Be You” and more. Come discover the art of elegance.
