I liked how that stone-faced guy in the foreground finally turned around and looked, and then smiled.

It is very much in the style of Johan Blohm. Below is a clip of Blohm's boogie. - Tom

There did seem to be a number of people who stopped to listen, take pictures and such. To be fair some of them might not have realized that he wasn’t a paid entertainer, just a fellow traveler. There were a good many who walked by but they might have had flights to catch, didn’t have the time to stop and listen. On my last trip, after a 12 hour flight and needing to make a connecting flight on the other side of the terminal, which I almost missed thanks to TSA, I would not have stopped even if the guy was playing with his feet, had a monkey on his head and the piano was literally on fire, although I would have been tempted and probably would have managed a jetlagged smile of some sort.

Yes, very sick of guitar.

It is a gift to be able to play like this. This seems to be a foreign airport, so I think it is cultural that most of the people are not seeming to appreciate this music, which is very American in its roots.

At first I thought it might be just a video with audio taken from a professional recording laid on top. But it’s obvious you couldn’t fake banging those keys like that.

Holy Mother of God. If I was in an airport terminal and that guy sat down and played the piano like that, I’d listen all day long and pray the plane never came. That is some seriously mad skills.

I’d love to see this guy walk into a Nordstrom store and play this. They’d probably kick him out for doing so.

This is the type of music they normally played there until they laid off the piano players. Now the pianos sits alone and quiet.
