Hey Everybody,
Hope the impending dawn of 2013 finds you well.....and inspired to learn and enjoy some piano-practicing,playing and listening/watching. The latter two very much help to inspire the former two. And the cyber age has brought us a great wealth of videos[i.e through YouTube] and recordings[ITunes,YouTube,etc] available for free or inexpensively. Steve Krenz and I wanted to encourage the sharing of such piano inspiration and enjoyment and we've just started a thread on the Piano Open Talk column called Favorite Piano Videos and Recordings. I would love it if you all could check it out and post some in the near future-whatever style. I'll also say that it's important not to get to into being intimidated by the virtuosity/mastery of some of the players that might be posted. To me,music is about Expression[more than impression] and we've all got something valid to express. As the old Sesame Street song ["Sing A Song"] says..."Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear,just sing,sing a song"-with your piano playing in this case. Happy 2013 and Happy Playing, Will

I once played a cat and got all scratched up. I should have waited until it was made into guitar strings first. :blink:
Jell-O curtains are the best of both worlds. Just don't eat the curtains. :whistle:

Hi, I'm visiting here from the guitar forum, but I thought I'd submit a couple of favs.

 

I hope you don't mind my patriotic suggestion that it's pretty close to impossible to beat these two Canuckians:  :biggrin1:

 

 

 

Different styles, but equally astounding.  I like what the head of the Russian Acadamy said of Glenn Gould, "I know he was an alien.  No human could play like that."

Hello Dan,

 

Thanks for posting the videos of performances by  two undeniably great musicians --- one a jazz giant and the other a master of classical piano.

 

They both make mellifluous music!

 

Mystery

     Hey Dan,Mystery and all,

                                               Two of my faves-Oscar P. and Glenn G. Have you seen the film "20 Short Films About Glenn Gould"? I think it's 20,maybe it's 21-very cool. What an interesting guy-he had the ability to listen to and participate in several conversations SIMULTANEOUSLY-understanding the content of each.This helps explain his utter mastery of musical counterpoint and affinity for Bach. And Oscar has such a strong sense of swing and the blues,along with supreme virtuosity and improvisational facility.Yes,thanks for posting these.Happy playing,    Will

Dorothy Donegan (April 6 1922 — May 19 1998) was a classically trained jazz pianist primarily known for performing in the stride piano and boogie-woogie style. She also played bop, swing jazz, and classical music. Obituaries for her argued that her flamboyant personality, tendency to mix unrelated genres in the same concert, and willingness to do lounge music may have caused her to be undervalued in jazz circles. Donegan was born and grew up in Chicago, Illinois and began studying classical piano at age six. In her early years, she studied at the Chicago Musical College and by age eight her potential was recognized. In the 1940s she became Art Tatum's protégée and in 1942 she made her recording debut. She appeared in Sensations of 1945 with Cab Calloway, Gene Rodgers and W. C. Fields and was known for her work in Chicago nightclubs. She began a trio in 1945, but then returned to solo work. She expressed some interest in returning to classical music after this. Her first six albums would prove to be obscure when compared to her success at live performance. It was not until the 1980s that her work gained notice in the recorded jazz world, and her live albums from 1991 perhaps gained her the most acclaim. Even at that point, she remained best known for concerts and live performances. At these she would draw crowds with her eclectic mixture of styles and her personality. She died of cancer in 1998 in Los Angeles, California.
