Absolutely one of the most beautiful renditions of the song “Over the Rainbow”. The intricacy of the notes and the melody lines that flow out from Keith’s fingers is like threads of silk weaving harmoniously into a picture of the most comforting blue and white with that colorful arc laying lazily over it. His choice of dynamics adds layers of very special emotions to the piece.

Achingly beautiful.

What a shame for me to not discover this musical comedian until recently… not only did he seem to have unlimited amount of clean yet humorous jokes to tell at the piano, he was also a very proficient pianist.

Seems like the Hungarian Rhapsody is the inspiration for a lot of people — Tom & Jerry, which in turned inspired widely exclaimed classical pianist Lang Lang and exuberant jazz pianist Hiromi, and also the very funny yet established pianist & comedian, Victor Borge.

When someone as great a jazz piano player as Oscar Peterson gives a lesson in such a humble and friendly way, you just can’t not respect him more.
