I enjoyed this video when I first saw it a couple of years ago; it's still a kick, isn't it?

Cheers!

I think we should invite him to the next PWF party!

Looks like he is having a grand old time and I just bet he has no hard time getting invited to other parties!

This is a piano playing style gone by. A different era. And pianists were the life of the party.

Thanks for sharing GPman.

Thanks for re-posting this.

It's a very nice video, a very inspiring performance with so much casual elegance!

"Uncle Ronnie" is the uncle to forum member "yonnermark."

Yonnermark first posted the video in this thread: http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?/topic/1/8726.html

You're welcome. I did not know it had been posted before.....very refreshing to see that someone of that age can play like that...It reminds me of Earl Wild at 88 still going strong. In fact Wild's CD "Earl Wild at 88" is a fantastic CD, everyone should hear it. \:\)

Gpman,
What a thouroughly enjoyable video. It must have been great fun growing up with your Uncle Ronnie. He must have been (and still is, I hope) the life of every party. Thanks again for sharing this.
Regards,
Roger
