5.0 out of 5 stars just buy it if you love classical jazz... August 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my husband's birthday. He's a serious jazz fanatic who has been playing piano for many, many years. He loves this set! it's both wonderful to listen to and very instructive - I even love hearing Hyman's takes on Joplin and Fats Waller and I am a relatively uninformed listener. It's just great music. I read a review of this set in the Wall St. Journal that was amazing and based my decision on that, so if you still have any questions, search the journal archives and you will definitely buy this! :o) Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz piano at its best September 25, 2010
By TedEE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dick Hyman has the astonishing and, to my knowledge, unique ability to immitate convincingly the style of all the jazz piano greats, including James P. Johnson, Jelly Toll Morton, Earl Hines, Fats Waller, Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson, Errol Garner and many others. His playing is light, elegent, clean and seemingly effortless. In this regard, compare, for example, his performance of Willy "The Lion" Smith's famous "Fingerbuster" with that of any other professional jazz pianist (which can be easily found on the internet). The others all sound heavy, blurred, rushed and sloppy - and note that Dick Hyman makes no sacrifice in tempo. This set of disks, including a DVD in which he explains many devices of jazz piano, is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 17, 2011
By K.K.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Holy mackerel! Dick Hyman is an incredible pianist. His mastery of stride piano is second to none. The sheer magnitude of this undertaking, as well as the authenticity of the stylistic interpretations, are awe inspiring. The demonstration DVD is such a nice addition as well. Highly recommended. No, wait. It's mandatory for the serious collector of quality jazz piano. !
