Eyran Katsenelenbogen: 88 Fingers

Read "88 Fingers" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Eyran Katsenelenbogen: Solotude

Read "Solotude" reviewed by Budd Kopman

To be able to even remotely compare a pianist to Tatum is saying something, and even if you are familiar with Tatum's playing (say, on Pablo), you might not be prepared for what ...
