Fresh Air Remembers Jazz Pianist Jimmy Amadie

Dec 16, 2013

For decades, Jimmy Amadie played solely in his home, heard only by his students when he'd play for them during lessons. His performing career was derailed because of severe hand problems. But later in life, he achieved some fame for his albums — and for the story of what he'd had to overcome to make it possible for him to record. Amadie died of lung cancer on Dec. 10. He was 76.

After injuring his hands, Philadelphia jazz pianist Jimmy Amadie stopped playing for decades. But a CD released this year documents his return to the concert stage, playing live at Art After 5 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Check out the CD here!
