Recorded in 2007 at the Old Mill Inn in Toronto, this album showcases the legendary interpretive pianist Dick Hyman in a solo gig in 2007. Hyman’s career dates back over 60 years, and in all that time with his many experiments with sounds, keyboard instruments, and music (standards as well as originals), he hasn’t lost his touch for bringing the hidden nuances in classic jazz compositions to the fore or creating new possibilities from popular song

This 2007 solo performance at the Old Mill Inn in Toronto is a typical outing, a mix of standards, time-tested jazz compositions, originals and even modern pop. No matter how many times standards have been recorded, Hyman manages to find fresh paths, with intricate improvisations that never get carried away, such as in the rhapsodic treatment of "I Can't Get Started. The pianist includes two original miniatures, both previously recorded in the studio for Dick Hyman's Century of Jazz Piano (recently reissued by Arbors). The relaxing "Ocean Languor" is a reflective ballad with flashes of Bix Beiderbecke's works for piano, while "Pass It Along" is imbued with the stamp of Swing Era great Teddy Wilson, with whom Hyman studied in his youth after winning lessons in a contest.
