Album Review

This unusual album from the 1950s features Dick Hyman in two separate settings. Joined by bassist Eddie Safranski and drummer Don Lamond during both sessions, he sticks to piano on one side and organ on the other, though the record label labeled the piano tracks as organ (and vice versa). The organ tracks are less interesting, because Hyman is stuck playing an instrument that sounds more like the low-quality models sold in suburban malls during the 1960s. As a result, standards like "The Way You Look Tonight" and "If I Had You" lean more toward easy listening than jazz. The piano tracks are another story. Following the brisk original "Marv," Hyman delves into Duke Ellington's unjustly neglected ballad "All Too Soon," a crisp take of "Topsy," and Ralph Burns' gem written with Woody Herman, "Early Autumn." Long out of print, this Lion LP will be tough to locate.
