Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Had such a positive response on the boogie piano video in the previous post that I thought I'd reprise this one.
When TWC was a yoot, Ma played piano. It was always a treat when she'd knock out a little Boogie Woogie. For whatever reason, that didn't happen very often, something I asked her about recently. Didn't get much of an answer, neither, except some vague allusion to not playing well enough or that she felt like she really shouldn't play that kind of music. Guess she was more comfortable with Oh Holy Night and Blue Danube.
She hasn't played piano for many moons and although she's eighty come August, Mom still dances every weekend. Not like this though.
For the email version of TWC, the video clip is here.
UPDATE: TWC has watched this thing something like 20 times now and it just don't get old.
