DIZZY FINGERS

"Music, Music, Music"

For this instrumental number, producer/director Bob Henry wanted me to play a variety of keyboards, dashing from one to the next. As it took several takes, the experience was exhausting, but fun. I had played this 1923 Zez Confrey ragtime classic as a solo for many a year. Now I would be accompanied by an orchestra and I knew just the chart I wanted: the Roger Van Epps arrangement used by pianist Carmen Cavallaro in the 1956 film, The Eddy Duchin Story, which our parents had taken me to see the year of its release.
