Porter and Strayhorn epitomized class and were celebrated for their contributions to the American songbook, but each remains under recognized for their technical skills as pianists. The two men were lovers of Paris and of New York at the midcentury, but Piano Starts Here looks beyond this stylish legacy and breathes new life into a number of truly classic compositions. Featuring Dave Peck, Bill Anschell, Tim Kennedy and Michael Owcharuk.
