My fave part is Sorabji identify the best pianist of his generation after Ho as a guy who ended up playing night clubs and doing Lib style arrangements.

Very randomly I can’t find any of his playing anywhere in any genre.

tbf my teacher only survived in Paris by playing in jazz clubs



Dude had pedigree for sure. That sheet music still around. Poss festin rep add? Lol
