James Rhodes plays Felix Blumenfeld's study for the left hand.skip to 1:30 if you just want to hear the song without the spoken introduction
he achieves an incredibly rich and full sound considering he is performing with only one hand.

Many rockers lose their fire and much of their vocal range while journeying through middle age.
But the ever-unusual Cyndi Lauper now sings with more power, more nuance and with more notes
at her disposal than she had at her mid-Eighties popularity peak.
The former New Wave poster girl's The Body Acoustic brings hard-won beauty to both her overly familiar
and unjustly ignored songs. Lauper's miraculous Top Ten ode to female masturbation, "She Bop," now sounds
moody and almost religious, its slurred lyrics here slowed for can't-miss-'em comprehensibility.
The later non-hits are just as revelatory: The new "Above the Clouds" floats on dreamy Jeff Beck guitar featured in a delicate arrangement that picks up where "True Colors" left off.
Lauper's continued progression into quieter material may have left her mainstream rock fans behind years ago, but it has clearly improved her chops.
What a great album. Thanks for posting!
I have her 2003 album "At Last" and its wonderful too. She sounds better now than during the height of her fame in the 80's.
Altar of Plagues-Teethed Glory and Injury-impossible to describe. Electronic-experimental. First listen-WTF. Second listen-it's growing on me. My friends over on the metal pages have assured me it will grow on me. I think they're right. Some of the more left of field heavy music I've heard recently. It's pretty cool. For those uninitiated in the pleasures of "extreme metal"...tread cautiously.
Author and Punisher-another electronic metal mixing band 2012 release.
Speedy Ortiz-current 90's alt guitar influenced Indie darlings of 2013...reminds me a little why I like Dinosaur Jr. Good stuff.
And, uh, a guilty pleasure.
Kylesa-Static Tensions-love this band.
