The piano began to displace the harpsichord starting in the 18th century. The performances on this album, mostly by the great Igor Kipnis, should bring much-needed attention to this instrument, particularly because most of these compositions were written when the harpsichord was the premier keyboard instrument, and, as such, are shown in their most brilliant form here.
Talk about taking us to another time and place! Vigorous, exciting performances. This set of recordings inspired many a person to learn harpsichord. Over 50 years, there have been "classic" recordings of music for harpsichord. Pedantic stuff from Gustav Leonhardt. Location: North Of Boston. Are there any other, more current groups that employ the harpsichord in a jazz format like this? Not current, but Meade Lux Lewis played some mean boogie-woogie on harpsichord. Location: New York, NY.
Rosemary Clooney's "Come-on-a My House" has a jazzy harpsichord solo. John DeAngelis , Aug 19, Location: Connecticut. Location: Moscow, Idaho. Not a harpsichord, and doesn't sound like one, but Oscar Peterson did some recordings on clavichord.
Skip Reynolds , Aug 19, I think there's a bit of jazzy harpsichord on Donovan's "Mellow Yellow" album. Obviously, it's heard in a lot of "artsy" pop music, but I'm surprised it's not used more in jazz or harder rock.

Great release, so go ahead and hit the purchase button.
Hyman is one of those great pianists who interprets popular, jazz and classical works with great imagination and virtuosity. His performances are superbly captured on these two great early 60's albums. As the liner notes indicate, a piano backed by orchestra is a heavenly pleasure but the recording engineer needs to keep the entire ensemble properly balanced.
Mission accomplished. Here's a great combination of piano standards plus a few tunes especially Boogie Woogie that are not often given the deluxe keyboard treatment. Great stereo as you came to expect from Command Records. Add to that, Sepia's remastering and you'd think these were recorded yesterday. Hyman deserved the popularity enjoyed by Peter Nero and Roger Williams. These albums prove it. This CD contains Dick's first two albums from '60 and ' The style is Popular Orchestra Instrumental and is mostly finger tapping tempo.
The music is good but not great. The audio quality is also good but not great when compared to recent DDD recordings. This is a straight forward stereo recording. The engineers avoided almost all of the "ping-ponging" used to demonstrate the advantages of stereo from that era. I'm glad I bought this CD.
