Background

A native of England's County Durham, Neville Dickie is among the most accomplished stride and boogie-woogie pianists on either side of the Atlantic - or as jazz authority Tex Wyndham suggests in his liner notes to Dickie's "Eye Opener," he's "a world-class keyboard shark." A regular performer on BBC Radio, Dickie's made hundreds of appearances as a soloist or with his trio and is one of the few British jazz players to score with a hit single - "The Robins Return" - in 1969. He continues to be embraced by British jazz enthusiasts, and his 1975 album, "Back to Boogie," has sold more than 100,000 copies. He's produced scores of records and can be heard on hundreds of jazz recordings including several recordings with French pianist Louis Mazetier As John Featherstone writes in Storeyville, "Neville Dickie's devastatingly accurate left hand shows why, at any stride convention, he'll have a place reserved at the top table."

Joe and Paul Midiri have made both jazz and classical music the focus of their lives since they graduated from Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) in the mid-1980s. With Joe on clarinet and saxophone, and Paul on vibraphone, xylophone, marimba, drums and trombone, they have recorded with everything from trios to big bands featuring the arrangements of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and the Dorsey Brothers, as well as Paul’s original arrangements and compositions. After nearly a decade of Philadelphia, New York and Atlantic City gigs, the Midiris made their west coast debut in 2002 and have since been featured at many California festivals including the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Festival, the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Pismo Jubilee By The Sea Jazz Fest, the Redwood Coast Music Fest, and the Sun Valley Swing-n-Dixie Jazz Jubilee. They've also performed at the Great Connecticut Jazz Festival and the North Carolina Jazz Festival as well as at countless jazz clubs coast-to-coast. They are crowd favorites at the Bickford Theater in Morristown, at Ocean County College and at TSJS venues throughout the Philadelphia area. In March of 2016, Paul appeared at TSJS in a triple-threat mode (vibes, trombone, and drums) with trumpeter Danny Tobias, who returned as a member of the Midiris’ own sextet the following November.
