I love his music. It's great when I want to wind down, at least, that of his stuff that I have.

I don't see how being blind makes playing the piano any harder. Probably makes it easier. You play with your body and ears not eyes.

Sophisticated Lady is a Duke ellington tune. Are you listening to Monk playing it?

Love the Monk. He's been a big influence on me personally. "Straight No Chaser" is worth seeing. You see his brilliance as well as his dark insanity.
