  1. Only discovered Nikki Parrott today and then found this gem of improvisation. Wonderful!

  2. This whole show should be PUT ON DVD!   has it been??   anyone know?  
       GREAT show! ~    
    thanks…..

  3. WOW
    Incredible music from two musical superstars  ( they should be,in my opinion )
    What type of recording equipment was used as the sound quality is amazing.
    Form a 71yo Aussie fan—hope we see Nicki & Rossano live in Australia soon.

  4. When Mr. Sportiello dies, Schumann, Chopin and all these guys will welcome him at heaven's door, and he will have to take part in a great jam session. 

  5. The first is from kinderszenen, Schumann, and then to Chopin and then I think Bach. Well worth 17mins of your time especially accompanied by the ever smiling Nicki, thanks for posting

  6. Just wonderful! Schubert and some great jazz improvisations just as Friedrich Gulda the only comparable pianist who could fuse classical and jazz in this briliant way.

  7. This guy moves effortlessly between classical and jazz piano. It's a marvelous performance. Watch it when you have 17 minutes without interruption. What a talent.
