Happening! - Dick Hyman

Dick Hyman & Harpsichord
Originated Any Produced by Loren Becker, Robert Byrne and Julie Klages
Art Director Charles E. Murphy
Command Records RS 899SD

From Billboard - August 13, 1966: The initial recorded meeting of Dick Hyman and the harpsichord is an unqualified success. Hyman's arrangements with trumpet and woodwinds also come off well.

From the inside cover: He (Hyman) used three different combinations of instruments. On three selections (Themes From Zorba The Greek, The In Crowd, Topolobampo), he has assembled two trumpets (Bernie Glow and Ernie Royal) and a rhythm section made up of Tony Mottola, guitar, Bob Haggart, bass, Bobby Rosengarden, drums, and Phil Kraus, percussion. The same group (with Doc Serverinsen replacing Ernie Royal on trumpet) is augmented by Phil Bodner's various woodwinds on The Shadow Of Your Smile, England Swings, Lady Fingers, Yesterday and the Main Theme From Tom Jones." For the remaining selections – Michelle, The Phoenix Love Theme, Take, Oh Take, Those Lips Away and The Ballad Of The Green Berets – Hyman and his rhythm section are joined by both Bodner and Stanley Webb on woodwinds as well as the girl trio, made up of Lillian Clark, Lois Winter, Elise Bretton, who were heard with him on The Man From O.R.G.A.N.
