Pianist Dick Hyman and guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli headed up a sextet of outstanding jazz musicians during Fallcoming Weekend 2009. The ensemble performed two sets of music on Friday, Oct. 2. The friendly acoustics of the Fillius Events Barn provided the perfect setting for this rare convergence of talent.

Both of these veteran artists have received honorary degrees from Hamilton College and have appeared on countless recordings, both as sidemen and leaders. They were joined by Randy Sandke on trumpet, Evan Christopher on clarinet, bassist Nicki Parrott and drummer Jackie Williams.

Fallcoming Jazz is an annual event initiated by the late Milton Fillius Jr., class of '44. This concert was sponsored by the Hamilton College Jazz Archive, the Office of Alumni Programs and the Dean of Faculty Office. For further information call Monk Rowe, Director of the Jazz Archive at 859-4071.
