In Studio: Dick Hyman

Earlier this year, we had the great pleasure of visiting with jazz pianist Dick Hyman. A few weeks before our interview, Mr. Hyman had just celebrated his 93rd birthday. You’re going to hear a number of stories from him and his experiences with some of the greats in jazz like Charlie Parker and Benny Goodman. Mr. Hyman will also delve into his recordings at the Moog synthesizer. More at dickhyman.com.
