He died two years after this performance.
How could someone with obvious certain disabilities understand music and play the piano so well even without a music script and not looking at the keys? And it's possible that he and his fellow musicians actually wrote this groovy jazzy number.

It might be because we are created in God's image

Listening to Alex Linder yesterday, he's an atheist but he did say something very interesting.

He said and it goes something like this

"I'm not interested in outer space, those interested in outer space are probably not very interested in their inner space"

Bingo!

Yeah MP was born with a bone disease and experienced quite a bit of discomfort when he played in the later part of his life. Steve Gadd is a legend in the drumming world. He has played on many classic tracks like "50 ways to leave your lover" He is a master of complicated syncopated rhythms IMO.


"It might be because we are created in God's image" It may be IDK. I do know mastery takes a lot of drive and ability Which one is more important? I dont know. I see kids on Youtube that are very young and have way surpassed many people who play there whole lives, Like this young girl

"I'm not interested in outer space, those interested in outer space are probably not very interested in their inner space"

I don't know but I'm always suspicious of people that present a choice of "a" or "b" when the choices are clearly not mutually exclusive the way a coin toss is :) As i get older i question more and realize i know less than i thought LOL
