My Cherie Amour

One of my favorite musical artists turns 70 years old today, and as the tributes roll in from celebrities and others all around the world, I thought I’d add my voice to the chorus.

I was lucky enough to meet Stevie again at the Grammys years ago.  I don’t remember what we were discussing in the photo or if he won that night, but he’s won 25 Grammy awards so the odds were definitely in his favor ?.

Stevie’s music inspires people all across the world, and inspiration is something we could all use right now.  I recorded a piano cover of his classic, “My Cherie Amour”, believed to be written about his girlfriend while attending the Michigan School for the Blind!

Happy 70th Birthday to the legend, and we wish you many more!

Bosendorfer piano sound – For this recording I’m playing a Yamaha Clavinova – which has the same keyboard action as a traditional acoustic piano, but there are no strings. Pressing a key activates (in this case) a sound which was sampled from a Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand piano. Try listening to it with a good set of headphones! It sounds better than any piano I’ve ever owned!!
