Jazz at the Station


The third "play me I'm yours"piano, a jazz band (the Ned Bennett Jazz quartet) and a book promotion all combined, resulted in a load of fun at St Pancras Station for commuters on their way home.

The "play me I'm yours"  pianos are an artwork that began in 2008 and now is found in major cities around the world.  Pianos are placed in train stations, parks, in the streets and other public spaces.  In London we see them spring up all over the city in the summer months. Many are painted by other artists.  Some days I think the city is crammed full of talented musicians when we hear these  pianos being played by passersby.

Grand idea. Live music is wonderful and even more so in unexpected places. (I'd never subject innocent passers-by to my piano playing.)

Always fun with live music, I had plans to hear jazz band today, but I'm home with flu like symptoms.

I think if I were there I'd have to stop for a while and listen.

London IS crammed full of talented musicians. I have never seen one of these "play me" pianos but I would love to see and listen to a pianist playing one.

It's true! There are some very talented yet undiscovered musicians on our streets! I love the concept of "play me I'm yours" pop up pianos. Great capture.
