Dick Hyman and Ken Peplowski

Swinging jazz joy returns.

Having played with the likes of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and many other jazz legends, piano virtuoso Dick Hyman and woodwind master Ken Peplowski share an encyclopedic knowledge of jazz and its history. Their partnership is anything but academic, however: For these two giants, a concert is all about the pure joy of spontaneous creation. Hyman’s stylistic palette is immense, covering stride, boogie-woogie, bebop, swing, and every other subgenre of jazz — no doubt this is one of the reasons that Woody Allen hired him to score many of his movies. Peplowski’s uncanny facility and gorgeous tone make every solo a memorable work of art. With a shared sense of humor that runs very deep, the pair is certain to serve up a performance that is as exhilarating as it is entertaining.
