Do you think piano music is connected to "fine" "beautiful" culture. Glenn Gould and Eroll Garnet didn't exactly play hiphop if you know what I mean. Right now I'm listeting to Misty by Eroll Garner which reminds me of a piano bar with cigar smoke. But I will have to contradict myself by reminding us all of how important Bach's Air on a G-string has been for a genrrs of music, what do you fellow Pianist think?

I remind myself that the most cultured thing on the planet is bacteria.
