Free piano (you pick it up). Lester circa 1966. Lutz area. Not possessed or haunted in any way. Tuned less than 24 months ago; played by human hands ~6 minutes since. Not a player piano — does not play by itself. Comes with bench. Has wheels. Please take this out of my home.
What happened to “aw shucks” country-boy virtuosi like these guys, Glen Campbell, and Roy Clark? Are they still out there? Are they all just session guys since no one like them could lauch a solo career in Nashville these days? But would there even be sessions for such players? I hear nothing in current country music that would require this level of musicianship.
I promise I’m not trying to turn this into a highbrow blog. Since I posted about an imposter earlier this week, I might as well post about the real deal. Probably the best female pianist ever, and better than a huge majority of males. And without a doubt the prettiest. Still as good as ever at age 79.
