Dick Hyman Jazz Concert - Salon Piano Series
Dick Hyman returns to Salon Piano Series for a jazz concert. This concert marks the release of a CD entitled "House of Pianos" which Hyman recorded during his concert at Farley's one year ago. The recording includes songs by Thelonious Monk, Stephen Sondheim, and Billy Strayhorn, as well as Hyman's own themes for Beat the Clock and The Purple Rose of Cairo.
Since he began his career in the early 1950s, Dick Hyman has been a pianist, organist, arranger, music director and composer, while recording over 100 albums under his own name. Hyman is a masterful improviser with a unique style of piano that spans from early jazz such as Scott Joplin and Jelly Roll Morton to George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and beyond. He is also one of the first people to record on the Moog synthesizer and his track "Minotaur" landed on the Billboard US Top 40.
Mr. Hyman has served as composer/arranger/conductor/pianist for twelve Woody Allen films. He also won an Emmy for his original score to the daytime drama "Sunshine's on the Way" and for musical direction of a PBS special on Eubie Blake. His recording, Dick Hyman's Century of Jazz Piano is an encyclopedic series of solo performances that covers the last 100 years in jazz over the course of 121 performances.
All Sales are final.
