With an extraordinary command of more than a century of jazz styles and a true master's touch, Dick Hyman brings the entire history of jazz piano to life with every performance. Over the course of an illustrious career, Hyman has played with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, composed for the American Ballet Theater, written more than a dozen film scores (including a long-running collaboration with director Woody Allen), pioneered the use of the Moog synthesizer in jazz, and recorded more than 100 albums under his own name - not to mention his many recordings under such colorful pseudonyms as "Knuckles O'Toole" and "Slugger Ryan.""One of the finest swing and stride pianists to emerge since World War II" according to JazzTimes, Hyman has studied jazz pianists from every era of the music's past.

In this special pre-season performance, Hyman will lead a musical tour through his favorite jazz piano styles, sharing his insights into the how the instrument's great masters contributed to the jazz tradition. Although his encyclopedic knowledge of past masters and their signature sounds comes through in his playing, Hyman is much more than a skilled re-creator of historic sounds. The richness of the jazz tradition and his mastery of the keyboard inform his own uniquely sophisticated and swinging style.

Listen:

Dick Hyman: "Ain't Misbehavin'"

Dick Hyman: "Stompin' at the Savoy"

Watch:

Dick Hyman live with Charlie Parker - "Hothouse"

Dick Hyman - "Kitten on the Keys"
