Format: Audio CD
This disk has the same performance material as the currently unavailable 1937, recorded at a live performance at the acoustically pleasing Maybeck.
Mr. Hyman's delicate touch and sense of humour combine with the smooth, silky tones of his favourite Bosendorfer Imperial to give you a performance that is best appreciated when
1. entertaining a loved one to a romantic candle-lit dinner with fine wines and the most expensive coffee you can lay hands on,
2. using an individually-tailored and room matched Class A vacuum tube powered high fidelity system with good bass extension.
On 1937 the extracts from the concert finish with Caravan but on this Maybeck disc the best piece is saved until last, Mr. Hyman's cheeky encore based on a popular Scottish air and transformed into a jazz 'structured improvisation'. Nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Master At Play... 28 Mar. 2001
By Henry Mautner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Concord's decision in the early '90's to record in recital a wide array of the world's greatest jazz pianists was one of the greatest gifts ever bestowed upon the American public. All were recorded in the same venue for virtually the same group of listeners over the course of a number of years, and the sum total is an historic document that will enlighten and enthrall music lovers for generations to come.
Of all of these great recordings, the most completely satisfying may be this performance by Dick Hyman, one of America's greatest musicians. Film composer, arranger, conductor, and historian of jazz and other forms of indigenous music, he is still most astonishing when seated at a keyboard and given the opportunity to "just play." Of course, he can't resist a "theme," and it's staggering to look at the list of great hit songs from 1937, all permanent standards in the repertoire.
Hyman is the rare musician who has the technique to play absolutely anything he can think, and always thinks the extraordinary. Everything on this CD is wonderful, and it's marvelously recorded (there is audience noise, but it's not distracting). I am not a pianist myself, but this has already made my desert island short list. Buy it - you'll enjoy it forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars I FIND HIS TREBLE HAND TOO FLOWERY 19 Dec. 2013
By R.LONERAGAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a traditional jazz fan of over fifty years.I find his interpretations of this lovely music dominated by his need to show off this type of right hand playing which in my humble opinion would be much better with fuller melodic chords.
