A uniquely talented and gifted jazz pianist, music critic and writer George Simon called John Bunch, “The Fred Astaire of the piano”. This performance celebrates the life and career of John Bunch from his days growing up in the small farming community of Tipton Indiana, his heroic service during World War II to his days of accompanying a who's who list of artists including Tony Bennett and Benny Goodman.
