Jim Vincent

Jim Vincent studied piano from a very early age with someone who himself had been a student of the great English pedagogue, Tobias Matthay. Although his career was eventually directed towards science, Jim maintained a strong — and for many years professional — interest in piano performance. In jazz, he performed with some of Europe's top improvisers, and made appearances at major jazz festivals and in BBC broadcast concerts. Prior to his recent retirement, he was Professor of Environmental Health Sciences at U-M.

Jerry Perrine
Specializing in the classic American piano styles of ragtime, traditional jazz, blues and boogie-woogie, Jerry Perrine’s music is full of fun. When he was 17 years old, his fascination with the music of Scott Joplin inspired him to teach himself how to play ragtime piano. This led him next on a chronological journey of musical study of the different styles of piano music by listening to recordings of Eubie Blake, Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson and others. He has enjoyed performing “old time” piano for over thirty years throughout Michigan.

Two Guitars

Ann Arbor guitarists Joseph Summers (lead) and Alex Belhaj (rhythm) play multilayered music with energetic rhythms. This guitar duo draws deeply from the European swing music of the legendary Django Reinhardt, but their repertoire also includes Latin, samba, tango, and salsa sounds as well as jazz standards.  Summers is an U-M graduate, and Belhaj is currently an undergraduate student in Literature, Sciences and the Arts at U-M.
