Legend Of The Pianist On The Ocean Synopsis

The Legend of the Pianist on the Ocean recounts the life of a gifted piano player who is abandoned at birth on a trans-Atlantic ship. Named for the year in which he was born, Nineteen Hundred grows up in a charmed world of stormy gales, swaying decks and rare beauty at the keyboard. His prodigious talent is ultimately tested in a rivalry of mythic proportions with jazz legend Jelly Roll Morton. Ultimately, that very same gift will bind him to the ocean forever.
