talent and decency

i’ve been posting way too much youtube stuff lately so i’m trying to back off…but this one i have to share.

jordan rudess is a Julliard trained pianist who is a member of dream theater and has produced a number of solo efforts and side projects.  Aside from being a phenomenally talented musician, he’s a decent person.  i met him a few years back at a modern drummer festival (he was playing with rod morganstein at the time) and while all the drummers fawned over each other i recognized him standing off by himself.  We talked about music and some of his projects for a bit.  A soft-spoken unpretentious guy. (unlike portnoy who has shown his true arrogant-prick colors recently)

I’m on jordan’s mailing list and this came thru for valentine’s day.  It’s excellent.  Enjoy.
