Born : March 08, 1927 in New York City, New York. Dick Hyman studied at Columbia University and played with some of the greatest Jazz musicians like Teddy Wilson, Red Norvo, and Benny Goodman. Hyman did different recordings under different nicknames and in 1966 recorded a cover of "Moritat" on harpsichord with his trio which sold over a million copies. During late '60s he investigated the earliest periods of Jazz and Ragtime and researched and recorded the music of some of the first early Jazz figures. Hyman experimented with various keyboard instruments, including Baldwin and Lowrey organs. In the late 60's he recorded a series of Avant-Garde albums using a Minimoog synthesizer focused in the instrument. He recorded some of the most apreciated albums from the Space Age Pop. Hyman has also worked for TV, scoring film soundtracks for Woody Allen, and as a Jazz pianist and organist. Died: February 5, 2014, New York, United States
