Somebody (who? I cannot remember - it was more than a week ago) once told me
that Astaire was quite a decent pianist. One of the tracks on a CD of his
vocals that I have is "Not My Girl" - an Astaire composition - which
contains a great piano solo which I learned later was played by Oscar
Peterson. Is there any truth in the rumours of his alleged piano playing
