HCC/Ybor Performing Arts Series 
Dick Hyman, Pianist &
Whitney James,Vocalist 
 "Songs You'd Never Expect"

Sunday December 6, 2015 ~ 3pm
Dick Hyman and Whitney James

The Tampa Jazz Club and the HCC Visual and Performing Arts Series will present piano legend Dick Hyman with vocalist Whitney James performing together for the very first time. They’ll be joined by Alejandro Arenas on bass and Mark Feinman on drums for a program called “Songs You’d Never Expect” on Sunday, December 6, at 3:00 PM. The performance will take place in the Mainstage Theatre of the HCC Performing Arts Building in Ybor City.

Dick Hyman’s remarkable career spans more than sixty years as a pianist and a composer, incorporating small group swing to big bands, TV studios to Broadway musicals and film soundtracks to chamber music. Dick Hyman has performed with an extensive list of all stars including Benny Goodman, Red Norvo, and with bebop icon Charlie Parker in Parker’s only known television appearance. With well over 100 albums under his own name the one time student of Teddy Wilson has the entire history of jazz in his sound. This December 6 collaboration brings Dick Hyman together with Whitney James, whose concert appearances on both coasts and her CD “The Nature of Love” have established her as a singularly gifted jazz artist.

The program includes well-known songs by jazz greats including Miles Davis and Bill Evans along with Coltrane, Monk, and others. In every case these jazz standards are fitted with creative lyrics that put them in a whole new light for listeners.

As a special treat the artists also feature “another very hip musician,” as Hyman says, with their new arrangement of a Partita by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Don’t miss this first time collaboration in our beautiful theater in historic Ybor City.
