INTO THE MUSIC had a very unique opportunity to interview a one-of-a-kind musician, pianist John Melzer. John is 100-years-old and shows no signs of slowing down. His knowledge of music history is spot on, but what we find the most inspiring is that he still performs. In this episode we hear part one of John's story, his love of blues music, his love of family, and he plays his favorite blues song for us, "Saint Louis Blues." The first of two very special episodes!
We encourage you to check out John's video concert celebrating his 100th year here!
