Terry Lower and Edye Evans Hyde
Pianist Terry Lower has a great and swinging command of the keyboard. A fixture on the Michigan jazz scene for over 30 years, Terry is an in-demand sideman, working with such artists as Benny Golson, Frank Morgan, David “Fathead” Newman and Kevin Mahogany, but it is at the head of his own quintet that Terry’s playing and writing are best showcased. Inspired by Oscar Peterson, Monty Alexander and Art Tatum, Terry Lower is an exciting and fun pianist who adds his own twist to the straight-ahead jazz that he loves. Edye Evans Hyde’s voice ranges from swanky, classic jazz to upbeat blues that makes you stand up and move. Her smooth ability to weave her voice in with the instruments and her ability to passionately belt her voice earned her the Michigan Jazz Vocalist of the Year.
