Editor's note: putting the silly pun of "Dick Hyman" aside and concentrating upon the masterful piano work of this guy we see elements of classical, jazz and lounge music at play here. He's a big name and a legend in the industry, and rightfully so, because this and many of his other hundred or so records rock yer socks off! Why more artists don't employ the electric organ and moog sounds in their music is beyond me. It's almost impossible for a good pianist to sound bad on one of these things. Or maybe I just haven't heard enough yet. I'm still waiting to hear a clunker.
