Peter Nero Live Encore
Peter Nero Live Encore This is a live performance of "The Man I Love" by Peter Nero. This was his encore at the end of an appearance with a symphony. Except for the very end when the orchestra comes in, the entire piece is totally improvised. It's completely different every time he plays it. Sorry for the poor quality and the fact that it audio only, but I thought it was still worth posting. If you've ever seen Peter play this live you already know how incredible it is. Who else has such command of the instrument? This guy can play anything. He can play jazz like Oscar Peterson and play classical like Horowitz. In fact, he was Vladimir Horowitz's favorite pianist. Peter's got the serious piano chops. Ray Charles said "Art Tatum could play anything he wanted to...Oscar [Peterson] is my man...and Peter Nero plays his buns off!"

Our Love is here to stay
Our Love is here to stay "Our Love Is Here to Stay" is a popular song and a jazz standard. The music was written by George Gershwin, the lyrics by Ira Gershwin, for the movie The Goldwyn Follies (1938) which was released shortly after George Gershwin's death. "Our Love Is Here to Stay" also appeared, perhaps most memorably, in the 1951 MGM picture An American In Paris, for which it served as the main theme. It also appeared in 1995's Forget Paris in which it is actually a reference to An American In Paris. The song was the very last composition George Gershwin completed. The music to "Our Love Is Here to Stay" was George Gershwin's final composition before dying. Ira Gershwin wrote the words after his brother's death, giving the song a special poignancy. The correct title, as published, is "Love Is Here To Stay[1]." The song is emblematic of the Great American Songbook, with both an introductory verse and a chorus.
