Zez Confrey's Dizzy Fingers

Updated: Feb 21


Edward Elzear "Zez" Confrey (1895 -1971) was an American composer and performer of novelty piano and jazz. His most noted works were "Kitten on the Keys" and "Dizzy Fingers." Written in a quasi-ragtime style, Dizzy Fingers utilizes syncopations and right-hand runs anchored by a solid quarter-note pulse in the left hand. Occasional key changes and transitions make for a fun, challenging performance, which Lena executes with enjoyment and ease!
