Today’s BBR piano player is Earl “Fatha” Hines, about whom the pianist Lennie Tristano said,

“Earl Hines is the only one of us capable of creating real jazz and real swing when playing all alone.”

Horace Silver said, “He has a completely unique style. No one can get that sound, no other pianist”.

Erroll Garner said, “When you talk about greatness, you talk about Art Tatum and Earl Hines”.

Count Basie said that Hines was “the greatest piano player in the world”.

and BBR says ‘amen Fatha!’
