MASTERFUL PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED PERFORMANCES
BY A GENIUS OF STRIDE AND SWING JAZZ!

The amazing piano playing of Dick Hyman (aged 90 at this writing) needs no introduction. This new Arbors CD presents a selection made by the pianist himself of his live performances at the Sacramento Jazz Festival in the 1980s. They were taken from never before released cassetes privately recorded by a jazz fan, which have been here properly remastered and enhanced in order to shine in this essential collection. Hyman performs a wide variety of material, which goes from well known Tin Pan Alley standards such as "'S Wonderful" or "All the Things You Are", to Fats Waller's stride classics, and obscure ragtime pieces. All of them are transformed into fresh music by Hyman's technical skill and imagination. For repeated listening.
