Best of the '80s In Music 2

Lyle Mays is like my musical guru, a piano god whose music I have worshipped since this album came out in 1988: 'Street Dreams'. There's a radio station here in NYC where they used to play good jazz (now they pass off fuzak and Celine Dion as jazz) called CD101.9. Anyway, when this station first came out, they played "August" by Lyle Mays and I've been his devoted fan ever since. "August" is the most tender piece of music I think I have ever heard. Discover the beauty that is Lyle Mays' musical landscape.
