This book presents a concise history, or “survey” of jazz piano. In 13 hands-on lessons and 4 bonus performances, Dick Hyman explores the styles, musical vocabulary, and performers who have defined and shaped this elusive American art form over the last century.

Starting with the pre-ragtime music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk and ragtime of Scott Joplin, and ending with the advanced scale types of Nicholas Slonimsky and music of McCoy Tyner, Mr. Hyman discusses and demonstrates the astonishing variety of jazz piano improvisation and the people and techniques that have shaped its evolution.

The included DVD, showing all 13 lessons and 4 bonus performances, is filled with closeups of Mr. Hyman's hands as he plays and discusses these techniques. This fascinating package also features a preface and autobiography of Hyman.

This is a comprehensive study of jazz piano and it's pioneers. From the earliest styles of the music to its more modern contributors, this book and DVD will allow you to understand and see transcribed some of the tools used by the likes of Errol garner, bill Evans, and many more. The section on block chords is especially pleasing to the ear!

Rating Review
Customer Rating Initially, I was disapointed, I expected arrangements of the pieces mentioned (in full), by Dick Hyman himself. However,having watched the DVD and followed mister hyman's narrative and excellent playing, and being able to follow it throughout the book, it is an excellent buy for young people learning about the roots of jazz piano playing and how it reached its peak with that master of jazz piano 'Art Tatum'
