Dick Hyman, one of the most accomplished and versatile musicians alive, is especially known as an authority on early jazz. After a lifetime of playing and studying the music of Bix Beiderbecke, Hyman announced he'd like to record for RR a solo program of music associated with Bix, including all five original pieces Bix wrote for piano. Hyman arranged other numbers Bix performed with various groups, and plays and improvises upon these in his distinctive, brilliant style. The title track is an infectious Hyman original reminiscent of the period. An attractive bonus is a piano four-hands performance with Hyman's friend and stride authority, Mike Lipskin.

"The musicianship is dazzling. At times, I just shook my head and laughed out loud at his level of virtuosity and musical invention – all in the service of the song. And the sound is swooningly beautiful." – Wayne Garcia, Fi Magazine
