    We’ll be paying tribute to Don Friedman, a great voice in jazz piano who passed away recently. I’ve long been a fan of Don’s music and am flattered to fill in the piano chair at this performance that will feature a number of the musicians who worked with Don. We’ll be playing some of his music and some of the tunes he liked to play. It should be a wonderful celebration of Don’s life and music.
