Whooo-eeeeH! That was great fun! I'd love to be able to do that for people to dance to. I think, however, that my voice is way too wimpy But it'd fit right in with my repertoire if I could. You just keep getting better and better -
LaValse: really pretty! TB: That was a pretty song as well. good job David: I think you played Beethoven well after only several tries! anthonyb: great job on Principio. Sounds very nice!:) Bill: That was great singing and playing! Prince Charles: Very cute! I'm sure she'll be a concert pianist one day!

Studio Joe, Bill, I wrote this piece with the inspiration from Tatiana's "Fluttering Leaves" submission last month where the right hand is kinda following the left hand arpeggios.
Jotur, Thank you for your kind comment. But don't daydream while you make breakfast, you might burn yourself
David, I think you play it well and I like the dynamic of your right hand.
Anthony, I think the special thing about Einaudi music is he creates a mood rather than tells something thru his melody. And this piece is typically showing it and your playing conveyed its mood very well. Dark, mysterious night.
Bill, This is the first song from you that I haven't heard before, but you made Elvis proud.
Ladypayne, What a fun piece. I like the constrast between the jumpy quick right hand and the grave "sticky" left hand.
babama, I love all the Japanese movie musics I heard so far. They sound romantic and epic at the same time. I especially like the slow intro.
Prince Charles, nice playing by Shira, but she'll have to get over that drooling habit if she's going to play in public, or they'll never tire of criticizing her. (I know this from personal experience, since I have the same problem myself!)
LaValse, wow, that sounded very, very good to me! Bravo!
TB, well done. Nice LH arpeggios!
David, great job on the Sonatina. You make it look so effortless!
AnthonyB, that was quite beautiful. A very haunting piece, well played. It strikes me that I probably would never have heard of Einaudi if it weren't for this forum.
Bill, how well I remember that record - it was one of my favorites. Nice work!
Ladypayne, nice work on the Warriors Tune.
Babama, that was powerful - beautiful, dramatic. Well done!!
My piece this month is Beautiful Love, by Victor Young. This is a ballad which has become a jazz standard. I am playing the piano, but the drums, vibes, and bass parts are computer-generated.

Wow, ed, you make my effort at listening to more music in the new year into such a pleasure. That was great - tho hard to eat supper to, since my head was nodding in time with the music and it was hard to stop it long enough to get the fork to my mouth :0 But a really nice piece.

Bill - enjoyed the trip way down memory lane with your excellent Elvis cover - fine job playing and singing together as always - still not sure though even after all these years exactly what a "fuzzy tree" is, or why it causes one to itch

As good at piano as I am at golf - very high handicap!
Really fun stuff you're doing, I gotta find out how to configure BiaB to pick up one chorus like yours does. That looks like a lot of fun. Have you tried looking for a real band? Your comping is really good.

Ed, I like this one a lot. I love that it starts with a romantic ballad melody then switches to jazz and goes back to the beginning melody at the end.
Rick, Wow. The piano part alone sounds like something in a George Winston's or David Nevue's CD. The lyric is also well thought. I love it.
Tatiana, When I watched your playing, it always gave the impression that the piece was simple. But it is not. Your hands/fingers have very simple but precise strokes. I bet you will make good piano tutorial video if you want to.
JF, Thank you for listening and for your comment.
Wow, while I was typing this. Two more submissions are in.
Sam, I am looking forward for your duets every month. They are special. This one is no exception. I felt like in a middle of a daisy field on a warm morning ( while in reality it is 17 F, here )
Joe, I agree with the previous post, you have a very nice voice, good recording quality too.
