DICK HYMAN & KEN PEPLOWSKI PLAY FROM THEIR NEW ALBUM: 
COUNTERPOINT LERNER & LOEWE

Dick Hyman is a true national treasure whose career includes a nearly encyclopedic output of more than 100 albums. A master of classic American music, ragtime, stride piano, and even orchestral works, the 92-year-old pianist has long been rumored to never miss a note. Ken Peplowski is a clarinetist and saxophonist similarly cherished for his vivacious and virtuosic renditions of classic swing material, authentic jazz, and the Great American Songbook. This dream duo joins forces again to perform music from their brand-new album celebrating Lerner and Loewe—a duo “virtually synonymous with the blockbuster Broadway musical,” whose smash hits include My Fair Lady, Camelot, Paint Your Wagon, and Gigi.

9:30 p.m.

DICK HYMAN, BILL CHARLAP AND KEN PEPLOWSKI
In a dream-come-true for fans of the Great American Songbook and early jazz, three masters of their craft come together for an extremely rare collaboration at Dizzy’s Club. Pianist Dick Hyman is a true national treasure whose career includes a nearly encyclopedic output of more than 100 albums. At age 92, the living legend has long been rumored to never miss a note. Fellow pianist Bill Charlap has performed and recorded with modern masters and icons ranging from Wynton Marsalis and Barbra Streisand to Tony Bennett, with whom he recorded a hit record just a few years ago. Beloved for his wide-ranging interpretations of the Great American Songbook, Charlap is one of the top-selling acts at Dizzy’s Club, often packing the house for two weeks straight. This premier piano duo is joined by clarinetist and saxophonist Ken Peplowski—one of Hyman’s favorite collaborators, and a master practitioner similarly cherished for his vivacious and virtuosic renditions of classic swing material, authentic jazz, and the Great American Songbook.
