Provocative Piano Volumn II - Dick Hyman

Provocative Piano Volume II
Dick Hyman And His Orchestra
Originated And Produced By Enoch Light
Art Director: Charles E. Murphy
Cover Art By Barbara Brown Peters
Command Records RS 824SD
1961 Grand Awards Record Co.

This set is available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample.

From Billboard July 24, 1961: Here's another fine album in the solidly selling Command percussion line. This set as in the first volume, spotlights the stylish piano work of Dick Hyman, aided by tasteful percussive effects. Hyman handled most of the arrangements, and they are sparkling, and the selections, from Kitten on the Keys to Sabre Dance, give the pianist an opportunity to show some dazzling musicianship, Excellently recorded, and brightly packaged, this set should become another Command best seller.
