    To counter the recent threads relating to all things hippety hoppety or repetative and pounding (banging choons?) I thought I'd start a thread about music with an element of class.

  12. Was in Ronnie Scotts a few years ago and this young cove came in and helped himself to the piano in the bar. He was rather good ... and then I realised it was Harry Connick Jr. Nobody bothered him. They just let him play.
