I often feel this way about piano music. I’ll take just about any other instrument over the piano.
And I remember guys like Lyle Mays who didn’t overpower with piano sound …
I also remember Pat Metheny Group’s “Still Life (Talking)” and one track in particular with Lyle Mays on piano called “So It May Secretly Begin” from thirty-five years ago.
Bought the album when it came out.
Yeah, go ahead, tell me how you hate the piano.
BUT I, THE AUTHOR, SHAKE MY FIST AT THE WORLD
AND SLAM IT DOWN ON A PIANO
Is that A7 or G7 … since you don’t play the piano? 🙂
Like any other instrument the piano is a fine one when it “knows its place”
…there are worse “offenders”—-the superfluous guitar licks of “power chords” and overzealous drumbeats and drum machines.
Balance and discretion in both arrangement and performance is what’s most important.
