Interesting discussion. Not sure what the specific details behind  
this particular scenario are, but riders are oftentimes disregarded/ 
ignored/altered by some venue operators when the riders are really  
there for everyone's benefit. They answer many questions about the  
technical needs and stage set-up for jazz combos who must travel  

Of course, piano endorsement deals are as unique as the pianists who  
have them. So....many facets to this type of scenario the lead to a  
balance of rolling with it and drawing a line for quality standars.  
Aahhh, the art of the business of music.
