CAN'T BE MISSED BY ANY PIANO LOVER

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD is quite unfair to Duke JORDAN : his playing is very good, with his light touch (after 30 years playing piano, wish mine were only 20% as good), his subtle harmonic sense and his continuous swing.
But Phineas NEWBORN is there at the top of his creativity, which means that some of the best ever jazz piano has been video taped. And it could be the best jazz piano ever taped. All his tracks could harldy, if ever, be improved.
For piano players, and despite a rather poor video quality, there's a lot to learn from Phineas' fingering. I strongly recommend the beautiful "Lush Life", where Phineas perfectly express the sadness of the song, and the tremendous, almost alien, "Blues For Left Hand Only".
Buy this DVD, you'll become addicted to it."
