Jonny accompanied my school Christmas concert on December 13th. In a word, Jonny is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! He rehearsed with all the children and a small combo. He readily took over counting in the introductions in so I could focus on the children. His playing is breathtaking! The concert had a swing theme, and there were several musical interludes where his improvisational skills really shined! I am not overstating anything when I say that everyone was really amazed at his artistry as a pianist. Jonny is the best piano player I have ever used, and he can play any genre without blinking an eye. I cannot recommend Jonny highly enough.
