Judy Carmichael - Host, Jazz Inspired
Grammy-nominated pianist Judy Carmichael is one of the world’s leading interpreters of stride piano and swing. Count Basie nicknamed her “Stride," acknowledging the command with which she plays this technically and physically demanding jazz piano style.
Carmichael is one of a handful of musicians who approach jazz from a perspective of its entire history. Choosing to study jazz piano from its early roots on, she explores the music deeply, infusing it with a “fresh, dynamic interpretation of her own” (Washington Post).
She is celebrating her 18th year producing and hosting her Public Radio Show Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, broadcast on more than 170 stations throughout North America and abroad and on SiriusXM NPR NOW Channel 122.
