Live at Montreux Festival, 1994. I wonder why he wasn"t playing a grand piano, as he almost always does, since the others were playing amplified acoustic instruments. I guess it was so he could cut? I guess the real piano at that time had some problems? An artist's contract usually has the right to refuse a particular piano if they feel it's not up to their standard. I think a real piano could have sounded nicer and been easier to control with his super technique.
