A Very Nice Piano Distraction

Lucy found a neat piano performance on Facebook by Jason Lyle Black which should brighten up your day. Once you find your way to his website ( also linked via the title bar ) there are a couple of video links worth listening to. The first video shows him playing Scott Joplin’s, The Entertainer; sitting backwards to the keyboard, not making this up. The other is a trilogy of sorts, which he did in September of 2008.

The trilogy starts off with a well know LDS hymn, We Thank Thee O God For a Prophet; except he takes “liberties” with the arrangement. I pegged it as a mix between Charlie Brown’s television movie music and the hymnbook. Then there is “None of Me”, a fun tune with some awesome playing. The last of the three, and perhaps the best of all three, a mix of an LDS hymn, If You Could Hie to Kolb ( #284 ) with Wyndham Hill style music.
