It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Well, I know I already put up one song for this month but I want to put up this one too as I actually put in effort for this piece for awhile now. It was a bit more difficult for me to play and It's still not perfect but best I've played it so far! It's called Once upon a December from the animated fox movie Anastasia
I will listen to the rest of the newly added contributions later too :p

I am currently uploading all of my written piano sheets onto my blog to make things easier. I also have written out a few more sheets. All free check it out if you want Any questions, PM me
David: Nice and smooth on the Beethoven Sonatina. What is that thing on top of your piano?
Sam, that thing on my piano is sculpture of a bird. My girlfriend made it and put it there so now it's virtually unmovable until she decides to put it somewhere else. Luckily, I like it there. And it's a nice improvement over the giant candle which was there before and which was sometimes mistaken for a roll of toilet paper in my previous videos.
While I was listening to all your recordings, it motivated me to record another video. It's just a little tune I was playing when I started to take piano lessons. Because it's really short, the video contains also a harpsichord version (I didn't record it twice, I just changed the instrument in previous recording).

Thanks Cathy. We've done one a month for four months now. I'm not going to jinx it by making anything so rash as a resolution to keep it up. We're working on something much harder (a Handel sonata), but the slowdown is the semi-skilled keyboard player.
I really enjoy comping with Band In A Box, but I'm never sure how far to go. I have this vision of comping for a female vocalist (gorgeous, voluptuous, of course), and she is singing sweetly while I am getting carried away with my comping, and suddenly she turns her back (which is lovely, of course) to the audience, turns her mike off, scowls at me, and in a low but angry tone tells me: "Stay outa my space you !@$#$%^#$%^%@#$%", then turns back to the audience, smiling, turns her mike back on, and continues singing without missing a beat. I play a few feeble guide tone lines, muttering about !@$#$%^#$%^%@#$% prima donnas.
I guess if that happens, I'll back off a bit!
Knotty, I haven't looked for a real band, but I'm building up to playing at jam sessions; maybe that will lead to something.
If you haven't found it yet - you can tell the BIAB soloist when to start and finish, in the custom soloist window. You're right, I have a lot of fun with it!
A truly swingin' performance, Riddler. I particularly enjoyed the deceptively simple-sounding piano solo section that follows the vibe solo. I found it somewhat reminiscent of Basie. I love Basie, by the way. Wonderful performance.
