Paolo Alderighi & Stephanie Trick, Piano
Swing & Stride Summit
Zwei junge Stride- und Swing-Virtuosen haben sich 2010 über zwei Kontinente hinweg zu einem begeisternden Duo des vierhändigen Swing-Jazz zusammengefunden: Stephanie Trick stammt aus St. Louis, Missouri, Paolo Alderighi aus Milano. Sie führen unterschiedliche Stilrichtungen zusammen, und spielen mit dem Fundus der Swing-Ära, mit Einwürfen aus Ragtime und Blues. In ihrer Spielfreude kommen die individuellen Vorlieben vital zum Ausdruck: Stephanie findet Inspirationen bei Fats Waller, J.P. Johnson oder Albert Ammons. Bei Paolo sind es Erroll Garner, Earl Hines oder Teddy Wilson, die anklingen. Sie verbinden ihre Klangwelten zu einem Panoptikum des Swing- und Stride-Pianospiels in höchster Vollendung. Und begeistern seither ein wachsendes Publikum in Europa, den USA und Japan.

Stephanie Trick has come to practically dominate the stride piano field, notes reviewer Jack Rummel.
Harlem stride piano, which developed in the 1920s and 30s, is an orchestral style of two-handed piano playing that not only swings, but is also technically demanding and exciting to watch.
Louis Mazetier, a respected interpreter of this genre, writes in the Bulletin of the Hot Club of France that she has won the esteem of specialists in the genre with wonderful interpretations of stride classics, James P. Johnson, Fats Waller, and Don Lambert (which she learned by ear). She plays these pieces with a punch that is matched by her precise interpretation.
A classically trained pianist, Stephanie was drawn to the piano at the age of five. In high school, she developed a keen interest in classic jazz. Graduating from college with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, she was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society at the University of Chicago.
Stephanie was the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Kobe-Breda Jazz Friendship Award, and has performed in many parts of the United States as well as in Europe in a variety of venues, including the Lockerbie Jazz Festival in Scotland, the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan, Italy, Jazz at Filoli, the Breda Jazz Festival in the Netherlands, the Arbors Records Invitational Jazz Party, the Sacramento Music Festival, and the Cincy Blues Fest in Cincinnati. In 2008 and again in 2010, she was invited to perform at the international Stride and Swing Summit in Boswil, Switzerland.
Stephanie currently has seven CDs available. Her Live CD was awarded the New Talent Prize 2011 by the Hot Club of France. More information may be found on her website at
