My teacher taught Chris a long time ago, and I got to hear him play on several occasions. I think I'd describe his playing as "neat". Not very exciting, but still a very impressive performer.

Nice interview. He's very articulate about several perspectives that I bet many of us share.

Pretty cool. How many pianists know how to do a colonoscopy?
