Listening to Leszek Mozdzer's latest album, "The Law And The Fist" from "Komeda" - a tribute to Krzysztof Komeda, Polish jazz pianist and movie-score composer. Beautifully sad and melancholic, with hints of hope. The piece is 11 minutes long so give it time to grow on you! Not quite jolly Christmas music LOL This guy is amazing.

I've been listening to this video of a Wim Mertens song, "Not Me," somewhat compulsively the past week. It's rather different than his usual stuff. The first time I listened to it I thought the vocals were way too weird... what with the slight lag, or whatever it is they're doing to the two voices in the production, trying to listen to the words is like trying to catch a wisp of smoke. I'm still not positive what language they're speaking, and it may not even be the same one. After about the tenth time I watched the video, though, I broke down and ordered the album.
That was great, not really my kind of music, but I did enjoy it, crazy hands! thanks for sharing. BTW, what is a 'stride pianist'? I have very little knowledge of musical terms, or much of anything piano related actually :-/
