Mike Lipskin, Stride Jazz pianist has performed in the United States and Europe for over 45 years. He’s
played Carnegie Hall, Davies Symphony Hall, Newport Jazz, and created his own sound in Stride Jazz
which can be heard on his recordings. Mike appeared in the APTV documentary about his teacher Willie
the Lion Smith, and in the Great Day In Harlem, PBS documentary about the greatest jazz photo
taken, 1958, in Harlem. He helped edit a book of the same subject, The Great Jazz Day, and supplied
photos he took at the Harlem shoot when he was fifteen. When four, Mike was first hooked on his
father’s Waller 78 rpm discs in NYC. By teen years he traveled to Harlem, learning from Willie The
Lion, Luckey Roberts and Donald Lambert. As an adult, Mike worked at RCA Records for 17 years:
producing historical Vintage Series reissues and new pop, jazz, and fusion albums by Gil Evans Blue
Mitchell, Cedar Walton and others. He worked on an acclaimed analogue process for rehabilitating and
enhancing ancient recordings. Mike performs at venues in New York, San Francisco, and Europe, and is

Ramblers, the Notables, Swingtime ane her Men of Note. Born in Ohio, she showed musical
precociousness when a toddler and by second grade was taking piano lessens. She brings a special sound
to American pop standards, and the legendary record producer, Jerry Wexler, says that Dinah has her own
inspiring stamp. She’s working on her third CD with Mike Lipskin.
