The Art of The Interview: Mark Birnbaum - This Is Entertainment (MJB)

Virtuoso piano styling is a lost art these days of inexpensive samplers and grade-school Electronica. Praise hail MJB for Mark Birnbaum, a New York City ivory-tickler with notable degrees of panache and finesse. Many of you are already familiar with Mr. Birnbaum's talents from his work as the staff pianist on Joe Franklin's long-running television show. Now he softly slips onto your stereo with This Is Entertainment, a tasty offering of lovely and proficient renditions from the repertoires of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton and J.S. Bach.
