Today, contemporary jazz musician Barron Ryan released his solo piano rendition of the Michael Jackson classic “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” The stirring cover shows off Barron’s exceptional talent and pays tribute to one of the world’s greatest artists.

"Making pop tune covers is both extremely challenging and some of the most fun I have at the piano,” he mentions. “I have to play music everybody has already heard while trying to find subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) ways to surprise them. If someone responds by saying, ‘Wow, I like that as much as the original,' then I've done accomplished my goal.”

Barron just released his newest album, The Masters’ Apprentice, for which he learned, note for note, how his favorite jazz pianists translated popular tunes into their own arrangements. “This single introduces my next project, in which I'll use the lessons I just learned to create my own renditions of well-known songs."

The video for Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough was recorded during Barron’s album release concert for The Masters' Apprentice in Tulsa. “I wanted to give the audience a sense of where I was going next, and the performance turned out so well that I thought I should make it available for everyone to hear."
