In 1976 a well known work was recorded by a jazz pianist but not playing piano.
Name the work, the performer and the instrument.
Another performer was also involved, also not using his normal instrument
Who was it and what was he playing?
Personally I give in Mike.
I can think of Musicians who also played piano as well as there own instrument but not the other way round.
The instrument was a stringed keyboard (i.e not electronic or pipe orgen)
He grunts/mumbles while playing.
The music from the 1930's work takes 42.20 minutes to perform.
Hi Mike, Thanks for the clue,
I know that Oscar Peterson did Porgy and Bess in 1976 with Joe Pass on guitar.
He played the clavichord on that occasion but unfortunately Joe was playing his own instrument (ie;guitar) so that cant be the one.
But it is, [nitpick mode]Joe was playing acoustic guitar instead of his normal electric[/nitpick mode off]
Alto sax player, also at times doubled on Guitar and Trumpet. Born Tulsa 1913; played riverboats, first recorded 1939 with Lionel Hampton.
Formed his own band 1945, which included John Coltrane on whom he was an influence. Acknowledged as technically brilliant on the Alto sax; very distinctive sound.
Died of a heart attack while performing in 1965.
How many roads must a man walk down ... ... before he admits he's lost?
