What a wondrous musical instrument is the piano.  From Chopsticks to Chopin. Classical, Jazz, Rock, and often from every corner of the world.
How many afternoon sandlot ball games has the piano disrupted to the piano and their lessons?

I must thank a friend of mine, with the initials of “Kalima” in helping me with some of these choices.

Moonlight Sonata–  Beethoven

“The Piano’s Been Drinking–Not Me” Tom Waits

Stardust – Hoagy Carmichael

Darryn’s Honky Tonk Piano In Concert!!  Amazing!

“Darryn playing a bit of piano up at Loch Rannoch. It was lying in a ditch, and going to be thrown in a skip the next day, so my friend is now the proud owner ”

Rafal Blechacz: Preludes (Chopin)

Jerry Lee Lewis ~ Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On~ 1957

Oh, so many more left for you to post.  Enjoy.

Pianos are nice, but I still think it’s a travesty the harpsichord fell out of favor.

I’m not alone.
