Stephanie Trick at the Swanage Jazz Festival

Last weekend I was very lucky to be able to go to the Swanage Jazz Festival to see one of my favourite pianists from the USA, Stephanie Trick. She specialises in stride piano, a form of early jazz featuring a ‘striding’ left hand pattern of bass notes and chords, often played at breakneck speed. Stephanie was fantastic and inspirational to see live, a really engaging performer and consummate virtuoso in her choice of repertoire. Here is one of her early youtube clips playing the stride piano classic ‘Handful of Keys’ by Fats Waller – fantastic!
