Savannah Music Festival: Classic Jazz Piano with Mark Shane

Airs Thursday, October 29, at 8 p.m. Mark Shane plays classic jazz piano and his spirited "striding and tickling" combines ragtime feeling, blues, infectious humor, virtuosic technique and a time honored repertoire drawn from the golden age of jazz and swing. Listeners delight to hits made famous by Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, Art Tatum, Duke Ellington, Teddy Wilson and other jazz greats. Mr. Shane served as house pianist in New York's Eddie Condon's jazz club, and has played with Benny Goodman and many all-star alumni from the bands of Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, and Glenn Miller.
