Dick Hyman was a jack-of-all trades keyboardist throughout much of the 1950s and 1960s, recording both jazz and easy listening albums on various keyboards before eventually focusing primarily on the former. This 1960 Everest LP clearly falls in the easy listening camp, with Hyman's lush piano backed by a large string orchestra, conducted by Jules Schacter. Even though there are two jazz compositions included ("Caravan" and "Sugar Blues") on the album, as well as several standards favored by jazz musicians ("Willow Weep for Me" and "I'll Never Be the Same") Hyman never takes the opportunity to show his true capabilities at the piano, as that might have overwhelmed the intended audience for this recording.

Dick Hyman, one of the most accomplished and versatile musicians alive, is especially known as an authority on early jazz. After a lifetime of playing and studying the music of Bix Beiderbecke, Hyman announced he’d like to record for RR a solo program of music associated with Bix, including all five original pieces Bix wrote for piano. (Most likely, these are a recorded first.) Hyman arranged other numbers Bix performed with various groups, and plays and improvises upon these in his distinctive, brilliant style. The title track is an infectious Hyman original reminiscent of the period. An attractive bonus is a piano four-hands performance with Hyman’s friend and stride authority, Mike Lipskin.

Ruby is one of those few people who could solo with a pipe organ, who could improvise with such an unusual instrumental background. It requires a very special ability - flexibility, ingenuity, and invention. Ruby, of course, is his own man. Like his idol, Louis Armstrong, he commands the center of attention, even if the background is something as odd as a theatre organ. The tonal colors of a pipe organ are its great glory. Above all, I'm stimulated by being able to orchestrate on the spot. And once you launch into a bright swinging tempo with the instrument sounding perhaps a beat behind the fingers, the sensation is like leading a herd of galloping elephants. You don't dare look back.

Performed (as was Dick Hyman's previous Fats Waller project) on a Bosendorfer Reproducing Piano and actually recorded from the piano at a later date, this outing finds the great Hyman interpreting 14 of Duke Ellington's compositions. Most intriguing are Ellington's nearly atonal "The Clothed Woman" and "Tonk" in which Hyman somehow duplicates an Ellington-Billy Strayhorn piano duet! Other highlights include the joyous "Drop Me Off In Harlem," "Doin' the Voom Voom," "Echoes of Harlem" and "The Gal from Joe's." The recording is as rewarding as one would expect.

Dick Hyman is a virtuoso jazz pianist whose career spans nearly 70 years. Fundamentally a swing pianist, he is also known for his research and mastery of all jazz piano styles known to man, from ragtime and bebop and beyond. His debut album for Venus Records is a Harry Warren songbook. Supported expertly by bassist Jay Leonhart and drummer Chuck Redd, Hyman performs these evergreens such as "You're My Everything" and "42nd Street" with vigor and inventiveness. The tone of his piano is beautiful, and this particularly good-sounding disc captures it well. Recommended.

All of cornetist Ruby Braff's duet collaborations with pianist Dick Hyman are something special. The success of this set was a bit unlikely because the great cornetist was very ill just a few months earlier. Luckily he recovered and does not show any weakness, hesitancy or diminishing abilities on his duet date. The emphasis is on slower renditions of superior standards, but there is also plenty of fire and subtle invention displayed during the thoughtful interpretations. Hyman is typically imaginative in his accompaniment and virtuosic solos, while Braff makes the most out of every note. Highlights include Fats Waller's "Sweet Savannah Sue," "Why Was I Born," "Thanks a Million" and "You're Lucky to Me."
