In the summer of 1980, I was able to tour with the Continental Singers. My director was Paul Boyd, Tour Z. In fact, it's the same tour mentioned in the post, below, about The Piano Guys. The pianist for that tour was Joel Mishler. I loved the way Joel played! He played like my mom.
I sang a song, back then, "You and Me, Jesus," by Dallas Holm. Joel didn't know that song but told me to just start singing, and he'd figure it out, so I did. Almost immediately, he had the tune, the style, the mood - it was like he had the music sitting in front of him. He was, simply, fantastic.
On Facebook, today, Joel has posted a video of his accompanying someone, Hannah Barrow, on violin. The song is "O, the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus." It is beautiful. Ms. Barrow is great. And I could weep for joy at seeing and hearing Joel's playing, again, after all of these years.
