Pianist Jutta Hipp: "Juuta Hipp at the Hickory House"

9:01pm - 12:41am

Jutta Hipp was from Leipzig, Germany and came to America in 1955. She had a very short recording career and sadly for a variety of complex reasons left music entirely by the end of the 50s. She recorded three fine albums for Blue Note Records. Tonight's Jazz feature draws from her first two. They were live albums with her Trio with British bassist Peter Ind and the great Ed Thigpen on drums. These came out in two volumes and were recorded at New York's leading piano Jazz club, The Hickory House. Jutta excels here and displays a beautiful touch and a full understanding of the music. The trio is tight and her arrangements are interesting too. It makes it all the more sad that she dropped out of music before the decade closed. Here is the great Jutta Hipp.
