Dedicated to Jazz Lovers

R.I.P., 22 year-old Austin Peralta will be missed~here’s video of his amazing playing in Tokyo.

The last time I saw & filmed him he was playing in Drew Simpson’s band, May 31, 2012~The Basement, Long Beach, CA. I remember standing directly behind him, awestruck, while his fingers danced like magic across the keys that night.

Austin was just sixteen at the time of this recording~they called him a prodigy. You will see & hear why~

    It seems that all too often these days we lose another who was so gifted. I’m sure his spirit will live on and many of the emerging new artists will be inspired by him to push it to the limits and beyond… thanks so much for sharing this and may God keep him close.
