Grunin Center Presents Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi
(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- MidWeek Jazz continues when Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi take the Grunin Center Main Stage on Wednesday, May 16 at 8:00pm. The pair are two of the greatest exponents of classic jazz piano, specializing in the exciting sounds of ragtime, stride, swing, and boogie-woogie. For this special concert, this husband-and-wife team will join forces to play a series of intricate “four hand” duets on a single piano.
“I love to hear Stephanie and Paolo together,” says pianist and NEA Jazz Master Dick Hyman. “They are an inspiration. Such sympatico! Such back-and-forth! Individually they are marvelous musicians – we’ve known that, but together they play four-handed stride as it’s never been done. Brava, bravo!”
