DYAD PLAYS PUCCINI

Pianist Eric Olsen and saxophonist Lou Caimano have re-imagined Puccini’s beautiful classical compositions as contemporary jazz arrangements in Dyad Plays Puccini.  These accomplished classical and jazz artists are unique in their ability to fuse these two musical streams into a new art form. Beloved arias from Madame Butterfly, Tosca, Turandot, La Bohème, and others are combined with the sounds and rhythms of jazz, gospel, R&B, and Latin jazz to create an innovative musical experience. Olsen and Caimano bring ten timeless Puccini melodies into the 21st century with grace, style, virtuosity, and originality.
