A new album documenting a session by brilliant young singer and songwriter Heather Masse (1/3 of the famed Wailin' Jennys) and jazz piano great Dick Hyman. Meeting on a 2011 radio show in New York, the two quickly discovered their sensibilities clicked and dove into this project. Most of the tracks are gems from Tin Pan Alley, including a beautiful pairing of Kurt Weill classics and Heather adds two great originals of her own.
Dick's 60 year history as a pianist and composer is without parallel: countless acclaimed recordings and performances, Broadway shows, classic film scores, and works for ballet and orchestra. Heather, a graduate of the New England Conservatory in Jazz, has toured world wide and recorded acclaimed albums both solo and with her group the hugely popular Wailin' Jennys.
