JAZZ | Tony Caramia

comment

Eastman School of Music professor Tony Caramia is a specialist in piano styles, so it's no surprise that his upcoming show is titled "Celebrating the Artistry of Cy Walter, the Poet of the Piano." Although he died in 1968, Walter's arrangements of classic tunes are still revered. Called "The Park Avenue Art Tatum," Walter wrote gorgeous arrangements of tunes like "Heart and Soul," "Begin the Beguine," and "Embraceable You." You can bet Caramia will bring out the beauty of Walter's work with a little help from vocalist Tom Paul.

Tony Caramia performs on Sunday, October 11, at Hatch Recital Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 3 p.m. $10 (free with UR ID). 274-1100; esm.rochester.edu.
