Description

Legendary jazz pianist, arranger and composer Dick Hyman joins the City of Fairfax Band in an evening of exciting jazz-inspired concert works. The program features Hyman’s Ragtime Fantasy, a fascinating romp through 40 years of twentieth-century American jazz piano complete with nostalgic nods to sentimental melodies and animated madness, which was transcribed by Paul Murtha especially for this concert. Other works include George Gershwin’s Three Preludes and Cuban Overture, a special Hyman tribute to Jelly Roll Morton, and more.
