The Hot Club of Pittsburgh is an educational/entertainment event presented by critically acclaimed pianist and jazz historian Tom Roberts. Tom was chosen by Phil Schaap, producer and curator of jazz at Lincoln Center, to create this event in which people gather in public places to hear hot music played directly from the original 78 rpm recordings on vintage equipment and sometimes on modern turntables. Come and hear the greatest music you’ve never heard before! Your life will improve!
