This is an enlightening story of accomplishment in the face of adversity. His life gives hope that if one pursues a dream or a purpose, one can and will succeed in any worthwhile endeavor.
He had beautiful hands.
Wow. I love his take on "My Funny Valentine." So sublime. His story makes a person appreciate life, in all of its imperfect forms.And it makes you want to be a little easier on yourself, you know?
Man, that is playing. Glad I saw that - had never heard of him before. Caravan is marvelous. I was wondering how he could reach the pedals - a custom made Steinway to the rescue.Remarkable talent overcoming handicaps that most of us will never face. What an accomplished human being.
I discovered Michel's music while I was a college radio DJ, and it was always outstanding. I knew he had some physical challenges, but I had no idea the extent of what he'd gone through.(I'm not a big fan of political correctness, and it takes a lot to offend me, but I was none too happy with a listener who called up one time and requested a tune by "that midget piano player." I was civil about it, but I made sure that the listener knew that Petrucciani had a name and not just a disability.)
