That’s All

April 4, 2010 | By | Reply More

Here’s a great way to end the evening. In this video of a musical duet, Peter Martin is accompanying Dianne Reeves on the tune “That’s All.” There is some pretty amazing musicality going on here, starting with Peter’s gorgeous introduction to the tune (but sorry that the ending is cut off a bit too soon).

BTW, Peter’s children attend school with my children. Last year, he volunteered to accompany the third graders for their musical. During the big performance, somehow . . . somehow . . . he made sure that he never stole the spotlight from the children–it was an incredible musical experience to hear the voices of little children framed by the music of a world-class jazz pianist.

Every other month here in St. Louis, Peter is playing jazz at the beautiful Sheldon Theater in the Central West End. The next show is June 4 at 8pm. The first two installments (the February show featuring Peter and Dianne Reeves and the show two nights ago featuring Peter and Jeremy Davenport) were everything you could have hoped for. If you’re interested in hearing some great jazz live for a reasonable price of $25 per seat at the Sheldon, visit Peter’s site. If you’d like to view and listen to more of Peter’s music online, here’s where you need to go.

[BTW, if you’d like to know more about how to play jazz piano like Peter, check out his “2 minute jazz piano” video podcasts on iTunes. Free piano lessons from a guy who really knows his way around the keyboard.]
