You are way ahead of the new KB that Jim's pianist just purchased?
Yours is about the size of two packs of cigarettes. Besides it, all you need
when going to a gig is a cable to interface with an amp, and a tire pump?
A few pumps on the tire pump and you have a full 88 keyboard that plays and
sounds like a Boesendorfer?
Blow, baby, blow?
There is a Cecil Taylor composition called "Air"
Muddy Waters had a "Blow, Wind"
Air guitar might be the only acceptable form of rock music,
as long as it's accompanied and no vocalisation is involved?
Air on a g-string (Birth of the Cool?)
Pocket bagpipes perhaps?
Londonderry Air is of course Irish
Fortunately the band survived the shipwreck because of the spare piano?
Can the inflatable piano be played palms upward after the fashion of Slim Gaillard?
Time to blow, definitely!
