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.
