Hot Jazz Series Continues with LOVE IN 4 HANDS

Paolo and Stephanie met at a piano festival in Boswil (near Zürich), Switzerland, in 2008 and started to collaborate on a four-hands piano project dedicated to classic jazz, preparing arrangements of songs from the swing era, as well as drawing from the ragtime and blues repertoire.

Following the 2012 release of their first album, Two for One, they have been invited to many festivals and events in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Their second CD, Sentimental Journey (2014), shows their commitment to the formula of four-hands duets on one piano, rarely used in jazz. They recently released two new recordings, Double Trio Live 2015, and Double Trio Always 2016, with the classic jazz trio setting (piano, bass, and drums), but with two pianists instead of one.

They have performed in a variety of venues in the United States and in Europe, including the Sacramento Music Festival; the West Coast Ragtime Festival in Sacramento; the Monterey Dixieland Jazz Festival, the San Diego Jazz Festival, the Kobe Jazz Street Festival in Kobe, Japan; the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival ,the KIG Dixieland Festival in Dresden, the Ascona Jazz Festival; the Bohém Ragtime & Jazz Festival in Kecskemét, Hungary; Teatro Dal Verme Milano, Jazzland Wien, Bülach Jazz Club, Jazz Bistro in Toronto and other jazz clubs.

"It is unusual to hear a piano duet that is played by four hands on just one piano. Somehow Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi manage this near-impossible feat without getting in each other's way. Their playing is very complementary and mutually inspiring with plenty of fireworks being felt along the way. In their individual careers and together in this collaboration, Paolo and Stephanie keep the rich legacies of ragtime, stride piano, and swing alive, fresh and creative. Their CD is a joy from start to finish." Scott Yanow, jazz critic
