There were rumors going around about this amazing pianist. His name was Gerlüz (pronounced "ger-looz"). Nobody knew where he came from. Nobody knew where he would show up next......
He seemed to avoid venues where his talents would get the widest exposure and greatest appreciation, preferring seedy watering holes and establishments of questionable repute, showing up for a few days or a few weeks and then moving on.
We eventually caught up with the illusive pianist, tracking him down in a strip club outside of Toledo. We were just in time, apparently he had been becoming disillusioned with the U.S. and was considering returning to the more lively brothels of Europe. Although he was quite reticent about being recorded we persuaded him to come to our studios.
