Influence

pianoThis is bizarre. These two tracks, recorded 14 years apart, sound incredibly similar. One is a standard and the other is an original, but the pianist who recorded the latter piece is clearly strongly influenced by the former. Not only are their styles remarkably alike but the tracks are almost exactly the same length.

Interesting side note: The latter pianist’s track was recorded the same year that the former pianist died. Coincidence?

If anyone wants to take a guess as to who these two pianists are, please let your presence be known!
