Dick Hyman And His Trio

Jitterbug Waltz
Dick Hyman And His Trio
Command Records RS 832 SD

This album was a bit of a surprise. It's the first small combo straight forward jazz album I've found on Command.  This album was produced in the middle of a mess of great sugar-coated light-pop and ping-pong percussion albums Light released during the early 60s.

Hyman went on to create several terrific moog albums on Command/ABC later in the decade. It's interesting to note the wide variety of approaches Hyman produced during his career.


  1. This IS an excellent album; one of my favourites!

    Definitely one of the best Dick Hyman did, among quite a few.

  2. Hyman is fantastic! I have this piece, as well!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
