Miles Davis is not Mozart: The brains of jazz and classical pianists work differently: Even when playing the same piece of music

Miles Davis is not Mozart: The brains of jazz and classical pianists work differently: Even when playing the same piece of music | Jazz Up Japan | Scoop.it

Wonder how the pianist will react to the experiment if he or she regularly plays both classical and jazz music.
