Bill, nice performance as always. Did you just change your camera? The video is crystal clear. However, I think your voice sounds a little echoed.

Rickster, i didn't know you have that type of music in you. I love it very much. Is it selfish to ask you to play more of those musics?

Jazzwee, you live up to your username, this is my favorite from you so far. I love the intro.

Augustina, the melody sounds epic and seems hard to play for me.

HomeInMyShoes, you always make those classical pieces sounds effortless, and I like that piece. Everytime I listen to it I imagine some ballet dancer doing some footwork smile

Studio Joe, I haven't heard that song in a while. That is a very nice rendition. I love your arpeggio(sp?).

TB

Joe - a beautiful song beautifully played. I actually like the tone of your piano - it has a faintly metallic tone, kind of like a dance hall piano you might hear in old westerns, but only more refined.

TB - My wife gave me a Flip Ultra HD camera for my birthday and I'm using it for both the video and the audio. I like the way it looks and sounds. Yes - I added a little echo.

Bill - Very nice! That was fun. I like how you were syncopating those chords. The Scat made it jazzy for sure smile

Augustina - I listened to your recording that night that you first posted it. Then you removed your post so I never got a chance to comment. Loved the dueling violins smile Sounded like the real deal.

HomeInMyShoes - lovely rendition of Schumann!

Joe - I liked that a lot and of course a lovely tune. thumb You always do such professional sounding recordings.

Z32 - That was fantastic playing. Nice touch!

Thanks TB, I've tried not to post anything with real Jazz before in the bar. But I took the risk this time.

Jazzwee I don't remember removing anything I might have though since I posted them late at night and I was trying to do three different things at once^_^. Also I enjoyed listening to your song. I can't wait until I get my own piano!

TrueBeginner
From listening to you play I think you could play dueling violins it really isn't that hard:)
To everyone else I love all the songs on here:)

Good chops Jazzwee; I especially enjoyed the intro where you play the melody in the RH.

Thanks for the comments everyone. There has certainly been a lot of effort over the last couple of years on the pieces I work on. I would keep a log of the time spent on pieces, but it would probably scare me at how little I actually get through given the time spent.

@Studio Joe: nice stuff. Beautiful piece.
@z32: wow, that was really nice. As mentioned, nice touch. A pleasure to listen to.

Z32 - lovely piece and very delicate and fine playing - you sound like you're playing an acoustic in a large auditorium, but are you, in fact, playing a digital with "effects"?

Rickster - well, yours was my coffee-drinking and paper-reading morning music. Very nice. I've only done that kind of improv once in awhile, and after listening to yours I think I should try it again. Thanks -

Cathy

I'm really enjoying everyone's submissions this month! smile

Bill, your rendition of "Fever" was very smoooth and I also loved the improv using the Jazz Scat! thumb I have the same voice on mine (KR-7).

Hope y'all don't mind another "Misty":

MISTY smile

jazzwee - whoopee! I liked that it sounded jazzier and more confident the more you played, like you were really getting warmed up and into the sound. By the end it was definitely club stuff!

jazzwee - Your "All the Things You Are" rendition is very nice. You have a clean, crisp touch that is perfect for this piece. Not being real familiar with this piece I was kind of surprised by the abrupt ending. Very cool.

Your piano sounds great - did you add a little reverb to the recording or is that how it sounds in real life? Edit - I just looked at your profile and see you have both a Steinway as well as a couple of digitals. Which was this - again, a very nice sound.

Bill - Thanks! The piano is just a default sound of the Yamaha P155, which pales in comparison to the Hamburg smile as you would imagine. It's actually pretty hard to get nuances out of the digital. There's a little more reverb which I add to compensate for the my dissatisfaction vis-a-vis the Steinway. Now as far as abrupt ending, I was just improvising so I when I recorded something long enough, I just stopped so I don't upset the "Red Dot" gods. smile What I was doing is something new to me and very difficult. Two hands are improvising simultaneously. Completely unplanned.

Cathy - You are such a sweetheart! I'm always afraid to post anything with real Jazz lest it be labeled as "too many notes" (which I expect). So any positive commentary is really reassuring smile

Joe - Thanks! Chops are still under-construction but your comments are encouraging.

Bill, Fever is an old favorite. It seems like I say that about everything you play/sing, but it's true. Nice job. I really enjoyed your version. That scat voice is pretty cool. My little Casio only does "doos" and "ahhs" - nowhere near as cool as this.

Studio Joe, I like your version of Shadow of Your Smile. I wanted to sing along. I agree, the Yamaha does sound better although I think your Casio sounds better than mine. Maybe it's the player, though.

Elssa, I never mind Misty. It may be over played, but I have always enjoyed the song. Your version is quite nice. As an aside, I know that Rickster keeps saying how great Tatiana's hands look. She's got nothing on you. grin
