Please indulge me this one post. I love music, jazz in particular. And I've just listened to one of the best pianists to come along in a very long time.

His name is Eldar Djangirov and he is an 18 year old prodigy from Krgyzstan. This kid is simply amazing. His debut album is arrangements of standards by Herbie Hancock, Monk and others. If you enjoy traditional jazz piano, you have to add this recording to your collection, it's worth every penny.

I can't wait to see where he takes his music next.


I cut my teeth as a kid listening to another young genius named William Kapell who was barely 31 when he died in a plane crash in October, 1953.

I preferred his version of Rachmaninoff's Concerto #2 in C Minor over other versions by Rubenstein, et.al.

Younger musicians so often breathe life into works that have become stale.
