Tickling the Old Ivory - Piano Solos
We've been playing solos from our favorite performers and songs. So far, we have had the guitar string us along and we've had the doldrums beaten out of us by the old drums. Today, sit back, smile and show your ivory! We're going to share our favorite songs that include a piano solo - it might even be an instrumental.
There are a lot of fabulous performers with multiple talents - some play all the instruments we've discussed, but there are several who really stand out as stand up piano players.
Please list one song choice per post and do include the performer's name, link for easy listening and any memorable experiences you have to share about your choice of performer or song.
Did you grow up with a piano in your home? Were you forced to practice?
It seems many performers got their first love for music seated on a piano bench surrounded by family. Who is your favorite piano player?
