Rare Footage of Don Shirley Playing Piano
The Green Book is a new film just released about a road trip taken by African-American pianist Don Shirley and his driver/bodyguard Tony “The Lip” Vallelonga in the 1960s, based on the book he wrote. Here is some rare footage of Don Shirley at the piano.
Donald Walbridge Shirley (January 29th, 1927 – April 6th, 2013) was an American classical and jazz pianist and composer. He composed many works in various genres, in a long and prolific career.
During the 1960s, Shirley went on a number of concert tours, some in Deep South states, hiring New York nightclub bouncer Tony "The Lip" Vallelonga as his driver and bodyguard. Their story is dramatised in the newly-released film Green Book, starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.
The virtuoso pianist was somewhat publicity-shy and concert footage is very rare.
