‘He’s just a kid, but God can he play the piano’

3rd Streaming presents 20th and 21st century classical, jazz, and motion picture music, and DJ Gary Chew has songs from all of the genres on this week’s show.

He starts with songs from two musicians from different eras who were born this time of year —  “I Want to Be Happy,” by the Chico Hamilton Quintet, recorded in 1955, followed by “Blue Nude” by Aaron Diehl, released in 2013. (The photo shows covers from their respective records.)

Hamilton would have turned 102 on Sept. 20, Gary says. Diehl was born on Sept. 22, 1985. “He’s just a kid, only 38 years old,” Gary says, “but God can he play the piano.”
