My View: Another Standing Ovation For Pianist Copeland Davis

 Audience Standing Ovations are fairly common when the public has experienced a superior performance.  However, it becomes a special kind of recognition when the musicians in the orchestra rise after a soloist has hit the final note of his or her performance.  The Johnny Carson Tonight Show Band gave one to Barbra Streisand…..they also gave one to pianist Copeland Davis.  When the virtuosity and sensitivity of a classical pianist’s fingers merge with the inventiveness of a jazz/pop musician’s brain you get a unique keyboard experience.  

Think Van Cliburn, Liberace, Andre Previn and you come up with Copeland Davis.  He has the technique, the improvisational ability, and the pianistic flair to turn any tune into an exuberantly  creative composition.  He currently is giving quite a work-out to the Grand Piano in the Cafe Centro Cabaret in Palm Beach. Last night some notable show biz folks were in his audience and were inspired by his pianistic abilities to give an impromptu performance.  It was another night of standing ovations for Copeland Davis

Copeland Davis was inducted into the Las Vegas Entertainers Hall of Fame in 2014.
