Received the link from someone who said it was Little Richard.

Richard Wayne Penniman (aka Little Richard) about fifteen years before "Tutti Frutti, Oh, Rudy...."
A-whop bop-a-lu bop a-whop bam boom.

Here is some very rare footage of "Little Richard" as a child, when he was just starting out in the music biz' ... from a movie with Van Johnson ...

Very cool clip indeed.

Sorry but not Little Richard.

According to the Wiki for the film listed below it it's a child prodigy named Frank Isaac Robinson (born 28 December 1938),[1] known in his early career as a musician as Sugar Chile Robinson.

Still, an amazing video.
Thanks for sharing.

Carkins,

I didn't bother checking the Wiki link, but at least I got the "chile" part right. (Sugar Chile Robinson).

One thing's for sure, ...... one cool kid!

I never knew him. Still don't. Doesn't mean it's not cool. He is however little.

But Glen asked a question. I think it must be real. In that sense.

I guess my real question was, "is this Little Richard"? I watched the clip carefully, and the kid was hitting the right keys at the right time, so it was either real or Hollywood did a fantastic job of syncing. I concluded the playing was real.

The answer to who was playing was provided by Carkin's link. The kid was for real, but it is not Little Richard.

It is a good example of the old "black key pianist" style that I've talked about from time to time.

Video - The Soloist & Melodist Sequencer in Band-in-a-Box

Ever notice that little green Sequencer button in Band-in-a-Box? This powerful little button allows you control each channel on the Melody or Soloist track in Band-in-a-Box. For example, you might want a single instrument out of a MIDI file you import into Band-in-a-Box, so the Melody Sequencer allows you to rechannel, or delete specific channels.

Video - Generate a Guitar Chord Solo Automatically with Band-in-a-Box!

Band-in-a-Box has a "Chord Solo" button that launches the built-in feature where Band-in-a-Box will generate a Guitar Chord Solo!
