Herd of Pianos featuring Tim Crofts
If you remove me

He is able to coax a variety of colour and extreme dynamic contrast through employing traditional and non-traditional techniques in tandem. He has performed in numerous settings and with numerous new music and improvised organizations. However, never before has he faced seven grand pianos. Will he succeed? Tune in to find out.
