I can't recommend Sam highly enough. I went in search of a pianist for my wedding with a specific and lofty request: 90 minutes of real jazz! Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, Bud Powell, Bill Evans. Turns out such a player is hard to find. I heard from a number of pianist offering to play pop and light jazz standards -- you know, standard, easy listening cocktail fare. Luckily Sam replied to my request, writing "Playing real music on an actual piano is my specialty." Boy is it ever. Sam played beautifully, bringing a touch of class to our cocktail hour that my discerning guests immediately appreciated. In addition to his musical ability, Sam was a total professional.
