Washington, D.C.-favorite pianist Allyn Johnson pays homage to German jazz pianist Jutta Hipp (1925–1930), who moved to New York in 1955 and was signed by Blue Note Records, in a concert with bassist James King and drummer Nasar Abadey. In 1958, disillusioned by the music business, Hipp abandoned jazz to work in a garment factory, instead choosing to focus on painting and photography. The program is introduced by Kipp's biographer, Katja von Schuttenbach.
