Joyce Grill knows whereof she speaks. She is a fine accompanist and consequently in great demand. In this little book she recounts some of her experiences on the bench. Its tone is light-hearted, but there are messages. She tells about playing one concert when the Middle C was missing from the piano. It wasn't a case of not working -- there was a hole where the key should have been! She also tells of rehearsing with a trombonist for his college jury during the break of his gig at a jazz club, the only time they could get together. Every musician will identify with the happenings. This book is a great gift item, and a must for every pianist who is expected to "make Genevieve sound great."
