NPR called Dick Hyman a “living, breathing encyclopedia of jazz” on the occasion of his 85th birthday this year. Hyman’s jazz styling spans the distance from ragtime to the modern era.
Throughout a busy musical career that got underway in the early ’50s, Hyman has functioned as pianist, organist, arranger, music director, and composer. His versatility in all of these areas has resulted in film scores, orchestral compositions, concert appearances and well over 100 albums recorded under his own name.
