Program included: Jazz standards

Dick regaled us with solo piano for half the concert. Then bassist
John Schaffer and drummer John Lombardo joined Dick in a jazz trio.

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.
