A Plethora of P’s / #39: Piano

September 26, 2011 § 2 Comments

proactively punctuating life with the plausible, powerful possibilities of positive thought presented through a plethora of “P’s”.

“No other acoustic instrument can match the piano’s expressive range, and no electric instrument can match its mystery.” ~ Kenneth Miller

Billy Joel comes to mind. Stevie Wonder. George Winston. Herbie Hancock. Oscar Peterson. Ray Charles. Jerry Lee Lewis. Joni Mitchell. Regina Spektor. Scott Joplin. Bach. Beethoven. Haydn. Mozart. Tchaikovsky.

I admit I’m biased towards the piano. And I know it can probably be said for any musical instrument… but under the right hands (and heart & soul) pianos can be delicate, thunderous, funky, bright, rough, elegant ~ and everything in between.

Like a changing sky, her moods are endless; her range of emotion vast and deep as an ocean. Tickle her, and she sings with delight.

And if we match her up with a guitar and some conga drums… a bit of heaven just might appear.

    You’ve got it down, Rand! Maybe we’ll all have some awesome piano riffs coming through our iTunes today… hmmm, what goes well with creative web designing? … I’m thinking Mellencamp’s “Jack and Diane”, then some PIano Trio in G, K.496 Allegro… nice.

    Piano man. Great road music. Put it on and drive, drive, drive… :o) Bennie and the Jets. Wonderful for hand sanding that flea market desk find. Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K. 491. Perfect for cracking open that bubbly you’ve been saving and lighting a candle… or twelve… Thanks Patricia for the timely reminder.
