Variations, indeed

Various things are taking more time than I thought, so it will be another couple of days before I can go back to more substantial blogging. Meanwhile, here’s Mike Garson explaining the Paganini Variations.

That was just a teaser, though. Here’s the Mike Garson Quartet performing over 8 minutes of Paganini Variations. On the one hand, it’s clearly no longer classical music – it’s experimental jazz and then some. On the other hand, I suspect that Paganini would have been proud to hear it.

Recorded in Santa Monica, one of my favourite places on this continent.
