In this video, Dick Hyman acknowledges his acoustic mastery as well as his electronic explorations while improvising on the piano and the newly re-issued Moog Modular System 55.

American pianist and composer Dick Hyman is best known for his proficiency on the piano and his versatility in various jazz styles, but Hyman is also responsible for creating some of the earliest popular Moog recordings. The 1969 album Moog: The Electric Eclectics of Dick Hyman, found the accomplished jazz musician exploring new sonic territories with a brand-new instrument, the Moog synthesizer.

His early MOOG albums were part of my inspiration. Exceptional improv.

saw & met dick hyman @ savannah music festival around 10 yrs ago, my son asked him about the MOOG(Q&A session from audience)he talked at length & was very surprised a 14 yr old would know about his days as an electronic music pioneer. after the concert he signed lps for me & my son's hat. told us he & keith emerson were good friends & he was honored with keith borrowing from "the minotaur" on "lucky man", a great talent & a real gentleman he was(thank you mr hyman)

This was really beautiful. Sometimes, even with all the sonic possibilities that a synthesizer has to offer, it's nice to here something that is just purely musical at it's heart. Some are calling it boring, I find it wonderfully tasteful. Subtlety is sometimes the most correct choice.
