This Friday evening, Oct. 14, Jimmy Amadie of Bala Cynwyd will perform at the Philadelphia Museum of Art as part of the museum’s “Art After 5” concert series. For Amadie, a jazz pianist, this concert marks a remarkable milestone in his career.

It’s his first public performance since l967. But it certainly wasn’t by choice that he has not performed publicly in over 40 years.

In the l950s and l960s, Amadie was a rising star who toured with Woody Herman in l959 and was Mel Torme’s accompanist from l961 to l964.
