Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Dick Hyman (piano); Phil Bodner (alto saxophone, clarinet); Frank Wess (alto saxophone); Joe Temperley (baritone saxophone); Joe Wilder (trumpet, flugelhorn); Urbie Green (trombone); Bucky Pizzarelli (guitar); Milt Hinton (acoustic bass); Butch Miles (drums).
  • Recorded at Concert Hall A, State University Of New York, Purchase, New York on May 24 & 25, 1994. Includes liner notes by Richard M. Sudhalter.
  • All tracks have been digitally mastered using HDCD technology.
  • As the title implies, this is very much a swing set. Pianist Dick Hyman (a master of all pre-bop styles) has little difficulty emulating Teddy Wilson, Art Tatum and Count Basie (among others) plus his own style in an octet also featuring trumpeter Joe Wilder, trombonist Urbie Green, altoist-clarinetist Phil Bodner, baritonist Joe Temperley, rhythm guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Butch Miles and (on three tunes) altoist Frank Wess. The opening and closing numbers are ad-lib blues both titled "From the Age of Swing"; sandwiched in between are ten swing-era standards plus a couple of obscure Duke Ellington items. Among the highlights are "Topsy," "Them There Eyes," "Rose Room" and "Mean to Me." No real surprises occur, but mainstream fans should like this swinging set. ~ Scott Yanow
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (4/95, p.34) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good Plus - "...one of the purest-sounding swing dates in recent memory....a refreshing propensity for the seldom-heard....a magnificently open, almost daring acoustic quality to the sound..."
