The Hot Box #021 – A to Z of Jazz Piano Part 8 – The Letter H

Once more we delve into the files to find pianists filed in alphabetical order. In some recent forays it may have been difficult to fill the show, not so with the Letter H. In fact there are so many important piano players in this file we can’t fit them all into The Hot Box episode 21!

In the HOT SPOT this time - new albums……

The Whistling Girl from Honor Heffernan & Trevor Knight on Featherhead Records

Live in Montreal from Hiromo and Edmar Castaneda on Telarc label

Alas, we could find no recorded pianist from Ireland in the file labelled H, so if you know of any, let us know. The Hot Box is released on every 2 weeks and can be heard on-line around the world. Tell your jazz loving friends, and talk to us direct with comments and suggestions to

Coming Soon, continuing exploration of pianists filed under the letter H:  John Hicks, Hampton Hawes, David Hazeltine, Kevin Hays, Stan Hope, Lisa Hilton, Sir Roland Hanna, Julia Hulsmann, Jutta Hipp and Barry Harris.
