Eddie HIggins! One key to his style is to listen to the Ahmad Jamal Trio from the '50s and '60. And he had more than a little Oscar Peterson in his style. I used to have Eddie Higginss; Soulero on vinyl It's a great piano trio recording ... it captu

Thanks Torquenale! If possible, I will just try to get the hotel to "save" their tuning for the day of the party so as not to incur a cost - but we'll see. Thanks for the offer!

I think the 208 would be a good choice. I prefer the larger close 7 foot pianos a good bit better than smaller 5 foot something pianos. The larger pianos just feel much better and generally more responsive. Plus the bass sounds much better. I d

Five velocity layers does not mean that you can only play at five different loudnesses. There are usually 127 different possible velocities, since that's the MIDI standard. Early digital pianos played back a single sample for each note, at a volume c

I went big with a Schimmel and regretted it. If you are concerned, ask to try in your home. Edit: Also, voicing my Schimmel down resulted in a very unsatisfying tone (and these weren't amateurs doing the voicing). This is NOT to disparage the brand,

The principles behind the 8-note 5th sequence was to begin with a best guess M3rd and an immutable 5th. Then a up 4th down M3rd pattern until the 5th is reached. If the initial M3rd was wrong then the three 4ths and M3rds will not progress. Since the

If you are playing mostly classical, I'd go for the best action and the best piano sound. My long obsolete Technics P-30 is very good in this department, but it has no added features. It does team up with a good synthesizer or computer based softwa

You might also look for some of the other less common German made pianos. For whatever reason, Texas had a following in Chickering in the '20's. My 145 started life in Texas in 1927. There may be some interesting rebuilds around.

I suspect that there was something wrong with the manufacturing process for the pins, probably cleaning them before bluing them. If it is still under warranty, they should be replaced.

It is rare for a 13 year old to have a passion that is all encompassing. I think at 13 there is no way to "motivate a child to do what I want them to do" with long term results. The better question is "how do I have my child learn

The 208, if it fits well, can always be voiced down. If you are playing chamber music, you may want to soften the hammers anyway to give you a better pianissimo.
