Verdean piano: imagine a mix of jazz, Portuguese music, cocktail piano, and the intensely local morna rhythm. It's lush in mood, complex in rhythm, backed by two guitars, cavaquinho, and bass. Surely a genuine African piano-bar style has to be unique? Anyway, one can't resist this mix of soupiness and drive. Yes, the length is outrageous and the price astronomical -- but when did unique come cheap?
