Dick Hyman is a world-renowned jazz pianist, composer, arranger, music director and organist.

In the 1960s, Hyman created some of my favourite albums for Command Records. Over a 70-year career, he’s recorded more than 100 albums under his name, including solo piano, organ, chamber music, orchestral, Moog music and various sizes of jazz combos. He also worked as a composer and conductor for many Woody Allen films including Zelig, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Bullets Over Broadway and Everyone Says I Love You. Hyman was named an NEA Jazz Masters fellow in 2017.

These days, you can regularly find vintage Hyman records at yard sales and vinyl collectors’ conventions everywhere — and it’s good to keep in mind that he has also recorded under aliases like Knuckles O’Toole.

Here are five albums I highly recommend.
