I have never known anyone before, or after, Bert Falvo who could play the piano like he did. I think he was about 16, when a bunch of us went to his home after school, and watched in awe as he played any song you could sing to him. He play Scott Joplin, before I had ever heard of him. He could imitate piano rolls and make the instument sing like an organ.

I heard that Bert entered a monastery after high school, then in later years was working as a nurse in hospices for people dieing from AIDS.
