John Hicks =For years a New York based artist with many gigs at all the local clubs, a great bop pianist whom was influenced by Fatts Waller, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, and George Gershwin. Many great albums, but I particularly enjoy his association with flautist and wife Else Wood. John Hicks Legacy Band was formed after his death in May 2006. Their first album “Mind Wine” is all about discovering his style of music.
