For this the third in the series we move from fiddle and accordion to the piano [Part 1 here and Part 2 here].
This video highlights an amazing performance by Dick Hyman playing a Jelly Roll Morton composition which is very aptly named.
Keep your eyes open and try to follow his fingers.
You couldn’t, could you?
finger breaker indeed!I see the original is among the links at the end of that clip.my favourite piano players; in no particular order-Glenn GouldDuke EllingtonNikolai DemidenkoThelonious Monk
WOW! I thought I was good playing The BumbleBee!I saw Glenn Gould once before he stopped playing in public. A tremendous experience! It was not velocity, just his feelings about Bach's music which he could transmit to you by touching the notes in a very special way. Really my type of music!
Eyes-boggling, so to speak! Thanks, Calum.After this I am (almost) sure you will like listening to him and watching one of my favourite pianists performing a jazzy version of Mozart's 'Turkish March': Fazil Say.
