It was a beautiful sunny day in Central Park. There was a small spinet piano overlooking the lake facing west with the inviting message written on it, ‘Play Me’. The wind was gusting and I could feel the need to play. I sat down at the piano and to my surprised, only seven notes worked. Seven notes are all you get. No! Not just seven notes! Up for the challenge, I could only think of one thing to do. ‘Improvise!’ Enjoy! RK

hey, very nice improvisation! I just watched the video and am still "singing" laugh

I liked the actual piano too... but definitely with more keys working.

I'm having a look at your other videos, nice to find several pianos in NYC. Do you know for how long will they be there?

Haha that's funny. I wish that I would walk down the street and just randomly find a piano that I could play...even if only 7 of the notes worked. Good stuff!

there were 88 pianos spread through the 5 boroughs of NY...I would assume that this event will repeat again next June 2014....I was also told that Boston and Toronto had similar events.
