The 60's were a strange time indeed. Dick Hyman did everything from playing the last iteration of
"Knuckles O'Toole" saloon-piano records to his regular gigs as a piano-bar player to numerous
Command "bachelor pad" records including his own "Persuasive Piano" series, three albums with the
Lowry organ and a harpsichord album. Then along comes Walter Sear with the Moog franchise in NYC and
late 60's Dick Hyman was ready to groove. I love those late-era Command records, they get sampled
all the time -- probably most heard was Beck's (credited and legit) sample of Moog "whistling" on a
song from his "O-De-Lay" album. That sample was from Dick Hyman's other Command Moog album, titled
just "Moog" (see YouTube for various songs, the song "Minotaur" was released as a single and had
some radio play). Dick is still alive and playing, I just heard him on a Riverwalk Jazz show on
satellite radio two weekends ago.
