  1. I've heard a lot of piano salesmen take the "bunch of chords" approach Taylor talks about it the video. I did mean "salesMEN" – I have personally never met a piano saleswoman!

  2. Exactly what Bill Evans ached for in the music.

  3. Being a musician myself, this is the bomb.

  4. Hmm sounded like drop 2 and/or 3 voicings on that 'melody' thing. Very nice harmonies at any rate.

  5. So young, So talented, So Handsome. MMMMMMMM, What a catch!
