Technically, the Piano Guys are the music duo of pianist Jon Schmidt and cellist Steven Sharp Nelson, but the Piano Guys are also a 21st century multimedia collective that includes Paul Anderson, studio engineer and writer Al van der Beek, and videographer Tel Stewart, and together they produce musical and video gems that mash up classical themes with pop songs. This set is part compilation, collecting recent singles and movie soundtrack pieces, part new covers of hit songs done in the group's unique style, and part new compositions from the group. One of the clear highlights is the homage to the various Batman themes over the years, "Batman Evolution."
