Robert Ashley ‎– Music Word Fire And I Would Do It Again (Coo Coo) (1981)


“In the seven episode opera, Perfect Lives, Buddy (The World’s Greatest Piano Player) teaches his secrets to a select few through a set of videotapes currently in the hands of Baby, an all-around spiritual seeker and wife of Rodney (The Bartender). These legendary tapes are documents of rare and impossible occasions at the piano. The Lessons, variations on the theme song from the third episode of Perfect Lives, The Bank, introduces the four prinicipal characters in seven-minute cameo portraits: Isolde (Marie Isolde), Raoul de Noget (No-Zhay), Buddy (The World’s Greatest Piano Player) and The Captain of the Football Team (…his parents call him Donnie). Robert Ashley, Jill Kroesen & David Van Tieghem, vocals; ‘Blue’ Gene Tyranny, prepared piano solos; David Van Tieghem, drums, synare and vocal percussion; Peter Gordon, music producer”
