Jazz piano lovers won’t want to miss this special double bill treat. The legendary and versatile Dick Hyman brings his “uplifting elegance and jaw-dropping chops” (NPR) to a selection of solo jazz piano works. Then Bill Charlap, regarded as one of the premiere interpreters of the Great American Songbook, and his long-standing trio partners take the stage for their interpretations on classics of the jazz canon.
