From June 22 (2:00am) 2017 This is part two of my after hours hang at the Blue Note, NYC. In actuality, it's part one and you're about to learn why. After giving up on my interview with Jacob and leaving the club, I decided I needed one more shot and went back in, resigned to try and ask for a duet. I had been worried he would be too tired, but as I re-entered the club, I saw him walking with his friend, Mathis to the piano. I followed close behind and when they lifted the lid of the Steinway, I said, "Jacob, you mind if I record?" He knew that I had wanted to get something for my YouTube channel because of a previous email exchange we had had and he replied, "Of course!" I pressed record. I had no idea that the two of them would play for nearly an hour. They would not have stopped if Jacob's road crew didn't tell him he needed to quit. I think these two could have played all night. They stopped 4 minutes shy of an hour and I asked to finish off the 60 minutes. Thanks again to both of you for allowing me to be part of this epic moment.
Please take time to further check out these two genius musicians. Mathis Picard is a French-Malagasy pianist and lover of all music, living in New York City. He is a graduate of Julliard, and was the youngest finalist ever in the Montreaux Jazz Piano competition at the age of 11. He has shared the stage with Wynton Marsalis, Patti Smith, and many more. Please check his website to know when and where to catch him playing live! http://www.mathispicard.com/
