>Dick Hyman not only has one of the largest repertoires of any jazz pianist, but he is equally adept at playing swing, stride, and boogie-woogie, as demonstrated in this 1998 solo concert at Alte Kirche Boswil in Switzerland. With a superb instrument, an attentive audience, and fabulous acoustics, Hyman dazzles the packed church with a stunning performance. His rapid-fire rendition of 'Blue Skies' shows the influence of Art Tatum, Fats Waller, Teddy Wilson, and Earl Hines. No one has ever eclipsed Tatum's famous arrangement of 'Yesterdays,' but Hyman's interpretation is a lyrical, understated masterpiece in ist own right. In addition to standards, Hyman revives long-forgotten tunes like 'Sobbin' Blues' and currently out of favor songs from the early days of jazz such as 'Shine' and Jelly Roll Morton's 'Jungle Blues.' Hyman's bluesy chord substitutions give new life to the often listlessly played ballad 'Send in the Clowns.' He leaves the audience smiling with 'Boswil Boogie,' which was likely improvised on the spot.<
