From the Library: Piano Jazz

Today, join us for a wealth of jazz pianist in a pro­gramme of pri­mar­i­ly instru­men­tal music from some of the greats of the key­board jazz world, from Oscar Peter­son­’s inter­pre­ta­tions of Gersh­win to David Rees-Williams’ won­der­ful clas­si­cal explo­rations, David Benoit’s piano wiz­ardry and Sandy Owen’s beau­ti­ful,  reflec­tive solo Stein­way pieces.

It’s not sim­ply tra­di­tion­al piano in today’s show: I’ve includ­ed some excel­lent per­for­mances on elec­tron­ic key­boards, from the Bil­ly Bar­ber album that was record­ed with one of the very ear­li­est Mac­in­tosh-based MIDI appli­ca­tions to the incred­i­ble danc­ing melodies of Ian Lynn, and a great deal more.

While there are some live­ly pieces in today’s pro­gramme, much of it you’ll find relax­ing and per­fect accom­pa­ni­ment to an Autumn week­end day. Enjoy.

Then don’t for­get to join us at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic (7pm and 3am UK time) for the lat­est instal­ments of  lat­est ZBS Foun­da­tion radio series, Dreams of Rio and Ruby 3: The Invis­i­ble World, in the ZBS Radio Hour.
