Just think how many musical masterpieces and performances we would be without if it weren’t for that amazing instrument…the piano. Pastoral piano pieces, classical piano concertos, great gospel compositions, good ole rock and roll, jazz, soul and blues classics.

This weekend’s music thread honors not only the instrument itself, but the great composers and players, whether it be the good ole baby grand or the shiny tiny electric ones. Please feel free to add your personal favorites.

G. Gershwin – Rhapsody in Blue, FORTISSIMO FEST 2010

THELONIOUS MONK – Straight No Chaser 1965

Billy Joel – Piano Man

Elton John – Tiny Dancer

Ray Charles – Hit the Road Jack
