We have been living in the age of pop and rock for too long now. It can easily be seen in a "jazz" pianist's choice of rock song (by Peter Gabriel) for performance, and here Keezer plays the piano like a rock star plays his guitar… Where is the grace and subtlety of a Bill Evans or a Keith Jarrett? Pretty much gone with the Great American Songbook... If push comes to shove I'll even take the "mushy cocktail" stuff…
