We pull out the first of five albums my dad has of this popular pianist. His first hit is still the greatest selling piano instrumental recording of all time. He played for presidents and performed an annual marathon of requests. So get ready to hear plenty of arpeggio flourishes from the guy they called Mr. Piano in Volume 123: Roger by Request.
