Dick Hyman: Standards & Strides
Jazz at Lincoln Center
About Dick Hyman
With solo pianist Dick Hyman.
Dick Hyman is a national treasure whose career includes a nearly encyclopedic output of more than 100 albums, ranging from original piano and orchestral works to interpretations of classic American music, ragtime, and variants of stride piano. Despite the physically demanding nature of his repertoire, the 91-year-old pianist is rumored to never miss a note—and though that in no way defines his art, the rumor’s mere existence speaks volumes of his technical mastery. Hyman’s December performances at Dizzy’s Club have become a beloved tradition in recent years, and these intimate solo shows are a perfect opportunity to see the master perform some of America’s greatest music up close and in person.
