Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Dick Hyman was designated a Jazzmaster by the National Endowment for the Arts in April 2017. His extraordinary solo piano performances at the Sacramento Jazz Festivals (1983-1988) are not to be missed. Leonard Feather described them as simply unbelievable playing. Dick himself feels these performances are my best.

Review

The prodigious pianistic artistry of DICK HYMAN is on full display on Solo at the Sacramento Jazz Festivals 1983-19898 (Arbors 19451).  Super fan Siegfried H. Mohr placed his recorder in the piano when Hyman played solo piano at the Sacramento Dixieland Jubilee Festival in the period from 1983-1988.  From these recordings, Hyman has chosen 16 selections to include on this CD retrospective of his appearances at the event.  Most of the numbers lean heavily on Hyman's proficiency at playing in early jazz styles, with many of the compositions having been composed by James P. Johnson, Clarence Williams, Ferdinand 'Jelly Roll' Morton and Fats Waller.  He also borrowed songs from the Great American Songbook like ' S Wonderful,' 'Sophisticated Lady,' 'How High the Moon' and 'All the Things You Are.'  Particularly interesting are his readings of 'Jazz Me Blues,' where he is inspired by Bix Beiderbecke's cornet solo on his 1927 recording, the 'Pilgrim's Chorus' from Wagner's Tannhauser, as it was interpreted by Donald Lambert, and Johnny Guarnieri's 'Virtuoso Rag', a piece that Guarnieri dedicated to Hyman.  Listening to Hyman is always exhilarating, and this disc should be an instant favorite for those who purchase it. Joseph Lang --Jersey Jazz

Talk about a record that was never intended to be a record, this set is pulled from 5 years worth of performances where a Walkman was stashed inside the piano to catch the performances.  With Hyman s timeless Tatumisms flying freely, if you weren t there to enjoy this 35 years ago, such a mistake is now rectified.  Solo jazz piano fans know the outlines of what to expect and if you approach it as such, the minimalism of solo piano won t phase you at all.  A lovely set punctuated by rough edges and flourishes that probably wouldn t surface in a planned studio recording, how can you not be floored by a master that knows his stuff?  Well done throughout. Chris Spector --Midwest Record
