Don Shirley (Jazz/Classical Pianist/Composer) MP3

Don Shirley (wikilink) is a musician without category. Born in Jamaica, he was a prodigy equal to Mozart; he first performed publicly at the age of 3 and was invited to study music theory at the Leningrad Conservatory by age 9. This discography includes a lot of piano music reminiscent of romantic figures like Debussy, Chopin, and vaguely hints at jazz. An immense creative genius and virtually unknown.
