The Birthday CD for Piano
The mastery of a myriad styles displayed by Mike Hughes on one Melody is Extraordinarily Creative. Hearing the different left hand piano approaches capturing Gospel then Mozart then Boogie-Woogie then Chopsticks then Beethoven etc. is Rich and makes me smile ear-to-ear. Not only do I enjoy listening for pure aural pleasure, I had a "Gee, I just got something about piano styles that never would've occurred to me without listening to Mike Hughes' "The Birthday CD for Piano!!!" Many, many, many 5* musical moments on this CD I want to listen over and over. I have an urge emulate him by running to my piano. Spending time Re-creating parts his recordings by ear on my piano feels 'kinda hip for me' to attempt. Well done Mike, well done, indeed.
