  1. That is awesome… I love the “I suck (yeah supposedly!!), so I will just go for it attitude”. Makes the pieces really come to life… nice arrangement to… some of the chords really nicely glisten out.

    More please!! Bravo!!

  2. Another excellent video by Ian.
    Your self-proclaimed suckiness is very entertaining!
    Keep them coming!

  3. Mr. Ian Tanner, Pianist, made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards.

    Cheers and salutations.

  7. You nailed it.

    I SO love hearing Frank’s peices
    played on piano with the proper

  8. I like the bass part were Terry stands up and grabs the mic in the movie. Take your shirt off Ian (did I say that?)!

  9. So awesome I’ve got to quote some Läther conversations.

    “Bozzio: God, that was really beautiful …”
    “Moire: It’s… it’s breathtaking…”

  10. loved the end. “oh great now I can play it every time.”

    Way to make such a complex piece seem easy! Now just transcribe the entire guitar solo and play that on piano and you’ll be ready for ZPZ auditions!
