I’m suggesting that this guy can move a piano but not move an audience, except recoiling in fear

I just got news of a jazz rising star named Matthew Whitaker, who plays piano. But when I tried to find more information, I was reminded of a former football player for Iowa who apparently took too many hits to the head and also is a tool for the far right and I think was even briefly attorney general of the United States — I remember trying to compare him to former Stanford football player same position tight end Cory Booker now a U.S. Senator and briefly candidate for POTUS.

That he has sunglasses on call to mind both the movie version of Freddy Mercury of Queen – -which sold me a pair of Raybans or two a pair of pairs in that I lost or my wife tossed the first set –FOO — fear of orange — and my former client the blind pianist Henry Butler.

I admit I am forcing my headline in that right hand in piano is like treble not bass and I’m not sure if this is his Whitaker’s strongest skill but it fit the parallel construction about right wing meaning conservative, in the case of the pol or prosecutor.  Henry Butler was known for his left; he would practically knock a keyboard off its stand.
