Deep End

Rarely one can see so much contagious joy of life and artistry in a single video. Thanks for the recommendation.

Steve Barrow

Errol Garner - one of the many great pianists from Pittsburgh [or very nearby], a list which also includes Earl Hines, Billy Strayhorn, Mary Lou Williams [grew up there], Dodo Marmarosa, Johnny Costa, Ahmad Jamal, Sonny Clark, Horace Parlan, Shirley Scott[started on paino, then organ] and Geri Allen. What is it about that city that engendered so many fine players ?

Gary Carthew

Not to forget classical pianist Earl Wild, Oscar Levant (close friend of Gershwin), Ray Brown, hard bop piano virtuoso Bill Heid, and of course Art Blakey who started out as a pianist before switching to the drum set.
I see you love jazz as much as I do. Big cheers.
