What I find remarkable is that you can channel Paul Bley in-time.


Beautiful Cus! You need to post here more often. When done this slowly it has a completely different contemplative effect and draws me in even more. Excellent way to practice.

Now where did you pick up these subs on the chords? Really nice!

I do it like this often too but I probably never record it.

Wow that LH is amazing but ITSELF. You've really worked on that. Impressive to see you soloing over that LH.

Now I have to admit that this is not one of my favorite tunes to blow on so I probably can't do it justice.

Now I did perform this at a gig awhile back. So this is what it sounded then. This is the first time the guitar player and I performed it at a gig. Like i said, this is not one of my favorite tunes, which probably means I should work on it more.

Very nice development of your solo JW.
It was entertaining to listen to, I especially liked when you used space between notes and at the end of phrases.

Thank you for listening and for your very kind words JW.
I guess my answer is similar to Chris'. They are not subs, it's all in the voicings. I don't really know what I'm doing but it's the sound I hear, and it just comes out like that.
I believe that with this Paul Bley style, one is free to play outside both for RH melody and LH chords.

I hope you record more in this Paul Bley style because I so loved your high outside note in your ATTYA, as you heard it that way and it was such a distinctive, captivating and memorable sound.

Hi JW,

Thank you for that!
It's a beautiful tune. As you know, one of Bill's favorite. He must have played it night after night.
It's also one that typically modulates, like Chris did, and overall the changes are very "standard" like so prob a good one to know in a few keys.
Also, the changes move quite slowly and that makes it a really great vehicle for exploration.
And since it gets called a lot, it definitely one worth spending a bit of time on. It's up there with out of nowhere.

Nicely done. You have to admit it's a fun tune. they announce the new tune in a couple of hours. Rumors of Donna Lee or 26-2.

Turns out tune of the week will be Well you needn't.

However, you need.

So see you on the other side.

Hey dudes
I will be away on a remote, desolate island which is the last stop to Antarctica.
I look forward to listening to your "Well you needn't"s when I return in a week.

Just found a very cool speech by Keith Jarrett at the 2014 NEA Jazz Masters Awards:



He talks about his philosophy on music, jazz... neat to hear how one of the great pianists thinks.

My take on it was to not "overthink" jazz. Just play it.

Very sophisticated countermelodic treatment and I liked how you came back to inside the changes at the end.

Hey Knots
What do you mean it was a challenge for you ? confused
I loved your strong stride groove, your fusion of Monk's famous tune and your cool RH licks of chords and single note textures.
Beautiful background too.

Hi Chris,

It's nice to see you dig deeper into this style. In that spirit, I will try to post a stride / piano bar very laid back version later this week.
I wish I'd be home today to record. It's absolutely beautiful outside with the snow pouring down.

Until then, here's one we took Monday night. It's changes with what was referred as "an F bridge".

1 point if you know the title of the tune.

The title on the box file gave it away :-)

I knew it anyway, this was the first track on the first Miles Davis record I bought 40 years ago.

Great by the way, excellent playing from everyone.

Wow Chris !
Nice clean jazz lines PLUS that impressionistic style.....That was very entertaining indeed.

Knotty
I like your new confident tone, it really came through well.
I also liked the instances where you used space.

Here are the rhythm changes for this week.

FB seems to do some serious compression. The sound was not supposed to clip and the video not supposed to be so blurry. But oh well.

Hey Wind,
sounds great even with the missing keys and dynamics.
