The man behind the International Boogie Nights.
"Boogie-woogie has almost magical power. Even a reserved audience thaws at the latest after the first chorus. Piano music can hardly be more contagious. Boogie mood is created by the unique mixture of power, swing, freshness and blues, very rhythmic, directed forward and sharply accentuated, dreamy in between - melancholic, but never kitschy or sentimental".
