Award-winning pianist Richard Michael BEM imagines a meeting between two of the greatest pianists in the history of jazz piano – Fats Waller and Dave Brubeck. Both men had large hands allowing them to play stride piano with ease and coax the full range of sounds from the piano. With much smaller hands, Richard will demonstrate their different styles, techniques and licks, referencing his performance with their greatest hits from Ain’t Misbehaving to Take Five. Don’t miss hearing an acknowledged master of jazz piano playing the music of his heroes.
