A master of music
26 January 2020 | by elbermuSee all my reviews

How many years of your life have you been without knowing who Michel Petrucciani was? So many! Do you like jazz but don't know who Michel Petrucciani was? Oh God! But don't worry, that's what documentaries are for. Indeed, Michael Radford made a very remarkable portrait of the life of this amazing, mythical, superb, genius, master ... French pianist. Very documented, especially with the words of those who were with him most, we enter the life of this wonder of Nature and Music. Unforgivable to miss.
