KillgoreTrout On October - 26 - 2013

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

Once a wander, working vagabond, fellow traveler on this 3rd stone from the sun. Hurtling through space and time. Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.
