Editors’ Notes In a memorable exchange, jazz pianist/composer Thelonious Monk once called a Columbia University radio station to tell a so-called expert who praised his music even though he “played the wrong notes on the piano” that, in fact, “the piano ain't got no wrong notes.” In that spirit, here's a mix of both classical and jazz that demonstrates the dynamism of the piano at its best. We regularly update this playlist. If you like a track, add it to your library.
