Is this jazz for alzheimer's patients?

While this woman is a talented force of nature, when it comes to keys I don't think we need to forget anybody.

Piano has a history of amazing musicians from Bach, Mozart, Art Tatum, Fats Waller or any of the people you listed. Dont even get me started on organists...

I laughed so hard I think I pulled a muscle. She's good but the list of piano players that would absolutely smoke her is almost embarassing. Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Bernie Worrel, George Duke to name a few just off the top of my head. Listen to more jazz or funk players my friend.

Yet had I said, "Has Anyone Heard of Pianist Hiromi, She's Great!", you wouldn't have clicked to chastise my thread.

I'm not sure you understand the word chastise.

I agree chastise is severe, which I suppose is keeping in line with my thread style.

My topic names are either hyperbolic or vague.

It's my style.

This is a really talented artist. Thanks for sharing.

Won't make me "forget" about the others mentioned in the title of this post, or the great pianists past and present.

You ain't endearing new artists to people by comparing them the proven legends in music like that.

Like I said before had I mentioned her in the title no one would've clicked.

It brought you here.

Secondly the title is sort of a flip on the phrase, "If you like so and so, then you'll love so and so, but done in my more hyperbolic, and apparently antagonistic style.

The real question is did you listen and what did you think?
