Terry Waldo is considered one of America's premier performers and presenters of Ragtime and Early Jazz. Known for his virtuoso ragtime and stride piano playing, charming vocals, and disarming wit, he is the protégé‚ of the legendary Eubie Blake. Waldo has played countless New York jazz clubs and has appeared in concerts worldwide, including the Grand Parade du Jazz in Venice, George Wein's JVC Jazz Festival at Carnegie Hall and Jazz At Lincoln Center. Terry Waldo has performed and composed for many TV programs and films and has produced and arranged over 40 albums, including a ragtime orchestra album and is currently working on albums for Chiaroscuro, GHB and Delmark Records. His "This Is Ragtime", presently being republished by Jazz at Lincoln Center, is the definitive book on the subject. Terry has also been the music director for a number of theatrical shows in New York City. He is also a renowned educator and a recent instructor at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Swing University. Waldo has a well-earned reputation for bringing laugh-out-loud humor to live concert settings in the vein of performers like Fats Waller. In honor of what would have been Scott Joplin's 150th birthday, join him for an energetic week of ragtime. You'll spend the set in awe as a group of virtuosic musicians reminds you how fresh and timeless this music truly is in the right hands.
