Brilliant music, well researched and well performed even if the sound recordist does change every single week.
Love the heartfelt respect and the detailed stories and connections given to each lyricist by the Bad Piano Player, the mediocre singer (because when you’re mediocre you’re always at your best) and his long line of lovely technical assistants. Bravo John!
It’s like have a private piano bar in your own home! Love the research too.
