Ben Sidran: Jazz Man

Ben Sidran has played piano for Van Morrison, Diana Ross, and Steve Miller, among others – but he’s been a jazz-man since the age of six when he started playing in his hometown in Wisconsin. In addition to writing, producing, and performing music, he hosted NPR’s Peabody Award-winning Jazz Alive. His newest record Don’t Cry for No Hipster got him thinking about his Beatnik days and what it means to be “hip.”
