Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Solo performer: Dick Hyman (piano).
  • Recorded live at Maybeck Recital Hall, Berkeley, California on February 14, 1990. Includes liner notes by Philip Elwood.
  • Dick Hyman is such a versatile pianist that his own style has often been overshadowed by his interpretations of other pianists' work. Music of 1937, which features 11 diverse songs premiered in that year, finds Hyman at times hinting at Oscar Peterson (especially on "Where or When"), the stride piano masters, classical music, and even the basslines of Dave McKenna, but mostly he plays in his own virtuosic yet very melodic and accessible style. "Loch Lomond" pays tribute to Benny Goodman's rendition, "Thanks for the Memory" is based a bit on Bob Hope's original recording, and Art Tatum would have been proud to have cut this version of "In the Still of the Night." The wide range of emotions (from an exuberant "Bob White" to a somber "The Folks Who Live on the Hill") and Hyman's typically brilliant playing on the solo recital make this CD a particular standout. ~ Scott Yanow
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (3/91) - 5 Stars - Excellent - "This set is revelatory, scholarly, elegant fun. Few pianists master any classic styles nowadays, much less make relevant extensions of them, as Hyman does time and again during his happy hour. He hand-culls bygone beauties and rewrites history in clever, momentous retellings."
