Roy Gerson

It's the explosion of a thundering swing band at the height of the neon-splashed 1940s. It's the elegant artistry of a sophisticated keyboard artist in the heyday of Swing Street. It's the ebullient good humor of a Dixieland band under the jumping baton of a fun-making master of ceremonies. It's a tinge of the blues that touches the melancholy of the heart. Above all, it's the love for life, the joy for jazz, the sweet sweep of swing that makes audiences snap their fingers, stamp their feet, and clap their hands for the pure delight of music.

It's the sound of “pianist extraordinaire” Roy Gerson.
