Piano Rolls by Famous Contemporary Pianists
By Bernt Damm

Hi group.  Liberace was a great guy because he actually sat down and
recorded those piano rolls.  There are so many others that should do
this for the sake of preservation.  I am thinking of Jerry Lee Lewis,
Fats Domino, Keith Jarret, etc., etc.

The list goes on, and I wonder if any other famous people like Liberace
have ever been approached by the piano roll companies to make recordings?

 [ I think Bernt means pianists of the 1950s and later who performed on
 [ stage and made many 'hit' phono records.  That leaves me out...!  ;-)
