Thank you both for listening and commenting. I was not going to post this tune. Then someone posted Friday and said "Dolphin Dance, the tune plays itself". I thought wth, let me see if it does. So you kind of get stock voice movement on a tune that is indeed very pretty with very little dressing.

This week is "Easy week" again. All familiar tunes. I haven't decided which I will play yet. I love Cole Porter. Gotta pick a tune, and a style. Thinking of going back to some stride..?

Does it get any better? Stuck on an island, wouldn't this be it?

Night and Day, the medium up approach:

As it turns out, swinging on melodica is harder that I thought it was :-)

A couple of weeks ago I played two pieces at my teacher's annual recital. As we looked over the video, it reminded me of a couple of very important points about performing:

Dolphin Dance: I was pissed at myself after playing this because I had some EGREGIOUS mistakes. Yet, my teacher said several other students asked about playing the piece after hearing me play it. What I realized is that I got the spirit and feel of the piece right and even a somewhat educated audience really doesn't care about mistakes, as long as they don't cause you to lose the overall feel of a piece.

Crystal Silence: I was very pleased with my performance and my teacher agreed. Her intriguing comment was that I had intense concentration while I was playing and the audience recognized this and really paid close attention, as a result. This reminded me that audiences are very affected by what they think the performer's experience on stage is.

These are just reminders that we obsess about individual notes and mistakes when performing, when note choices are way, way down on the list of what affects an audience. Far above that are: (1) did we get the feel of the piece right, and (2)what are we communicating about our own experience on stage. Are we enjoying it? Are we deeply involved in each note? Do we like the other band members? Remembering these points takes a lot of pressure off and keeps me, at least, always focused on what's important: make sure to swing and have fun!

I agree. I think his personality, which came through in his music, was a big part of his appeal.

Anyone know the ballad that Keith J plays at 1:32:30?

Sounds like a standard but I've never heard him play it before.

Never mind, found it. "I'm through with love"

Sounds like a pretty tune, gonna learn it.

Diana Krall did it too:

Thanks guys for the comments.
Yeah the doll, my 6-year old makes them and has apparently decided that they should keep watch over me.

Just noticed that Jam of the Week is feature Wayne Shorter. At a jam last week, Fee Fi Fo Fum was called and I haven't learned that. So I decided to learn it for gigs coming up. Cool tune. Looks like the original just ignored the complex changes and just stuck to blues.
