jazztpt - this is a real treat. You captured the bluesy, romantic mood of this piece nicely. This one is iPod worthy.

Inlanding - You play with such feeling and get the absolute most out of each and every note. I liked your Small minor a lot, but your rendition of the Gershwin was downright outstanding.

Thanks all for your comments and for listening to my submission , glad you liked it.

Ladypayne - Jesu joy of man's desiring - one of my favourites , well done.

Glen - interesting composition and excellent playing as always, I look forward to hearing the finished piece.

Bill - you have an extensive repertoir, I am not really familiar with much Billy Joel but I enjoyed the song.
Loved your Davy Jones tribute, I was a big fan of the Monkees growing up in the sixties, you can't fail to sing along with that tune, yours was a very touching performance.

Amaruk - Very well played, do you accompany someone on this? I would love to hear this with the melody on top its such a beautiful piece.

Elssa - Theme from Piano Concerto No. 1 - Another tune I know from my childhood , my mother loved this used to play it all the time, well done. More classic cocktail piano on Sleeping Beauty, nice.

Augustina - Hua De Weixiano - very smoth performance , your playing seems to be improving all the time, very restful piece.

beechcraft409 - Chopin - very well played , I wish I had the
disipline to learn some Chopin, such beautiful piano music.

StudioJoe - excellent composition and very well played , you are an accomplished writer.

Larry Larson - that was fun , always enjoy bit of Zeppelinhoven.
Personally I could never work out the accordian , all those buttons to press , far too confusing for me, thats why I stuck to the Trumpet , only 3 buttons you see :-)

Glen - Small Minor and Man I love, you are really mastering your bluesy style of playing, pretty much perfect relaxing Piano Bar music.

LadyChen - Holy holy holy, what lovely arrangements, thanks for posting, some juicy chords in there.

Last night, I performed in a Jazz masterclass, which was very intimidating.

The pianists that played before me got hammered heavily. So I was expecting heavy criticism to come. Anyway, our Jazz Master (a Grammy Winning pianist) said only good things (whew!). So let me share what we played. Apparently I didn't shame ABF.

I was on a real Grand here and had to play with 3 other guitar players.

(and no...this was not rehearsed. Just played on the spot with new players).

Well done Jazzwee , kudos to you for taking part , this sort thing terrifies me.

Who was the Jazzmaster by the way?

It sounds like a group of good players all listening intently to eachother and it works well, some good solos, certainly doesn't sound like you have never played together before, congratulations.

Thanks, Jazztpt. The master was Bill Cunliffe.

It's funny you say that they were listening intently to each other. Well after two hours of criticism, they finally did listen. Didn't start out that way though. By the time I got up there the guitar players were tamed smile

Before that, guitar players only knew one thing, being loud and 'me, me, me and me'.

I Loves You Porgy



Beautiful Jazztpt. I loved the contrast when you did octaves. Such nice texture, voicings, and a lovely solo. thumb

Jazztpd- I add my kudos to all the other positive feedback. You really nailed that tune.

And thanks for the feedback on the accordion. Yeah, the left hand button deal is a challenge, but for me I started lessons when I was 5, so it's second nature for me. It's tough because you can't see the buttons while you're playing, and it would not help if you could. One button has an indentation, so it's all about using that as a tactile point of reference, and then having to learn how far to jump with which finger to hit any of the other 119 buttons. That's why most "accordionists" you see only use the right hand.

After my last accordion post I thought I'd put up a piano piece, at least as a reminder that I still play the piano. It feels good to be back on the forum. I've missed you guys.

Hey all! smile This is my submission for the March piano bar, although this is more of an audio recording test, since I've learnt this piece back in January. Any comments would be appreciated! laugh

Here's my rendition of Schubert's popular Waltz (the intro is mine):

Op. 100 composed by Henri Bertini (sorry about the sound quality - I am not sure why it did that)




Melody with Interruptions composed by Bela Bartok. This peice is great fun to play (especially if you want to be devilishly annoying to your neighbours - the whole thing is marked forte, except the final two chords which are marked ff).

Elssa - beautiful performance of Windmills of Your Mind. The melody is very familiar - nice cat appearance at the end.

Augustina - one of my kids' favorite songs when they were little. Like your dad I used to sing it to them but I would accompany myself on guitar instead of piano. I liked your upbeat tempo - very well done!

jazzwee - I'm not a big jazz fan but I can appreciate the musicianship and creativity displayed in this recording. I thought the piano player was a standout.

TrapperJohn - a lovely recording - your piano has a full, rich tone and your performance is nuanced and sensitive.

Jazzwee: nice work on the waltz. I've got so much respect for folks like you who can play that kind of jazz. I can do more traditional, structured jazz, but what you're doing is way out my league. It sounds great though-- good job!

Lady Payne Sounding really good Lady Payne! And you're bringing out nice tone from the piano. Nice choice of a piece. Lovely.

Inlanding Very dreamy Glen. Lovely new age sound there. And you know I always love hearing your touch on the piano.

BillM You know I'm a jazz guy now but wasn't always. So when you played this, it reminded me what I was doing in 1978, listening to this album. You always evoke memories Bill (shows my age). Great work!

Amaruk Very nice Amaruk! I'm glad you've gotten the confidence to post your music.

Elssa Fabulous! One of my favorite concertos. Of course I was looking for more since it was just a snippet.

Augustina Nice job Augustina! You and your sister are just getting better and better.

Beechcraft409 Nice playing Beechcraft. I was amazed at the shifting camera angles. Very high tech of you smile

Larry Larson Well that was a surprise smile That really put a smile on my face. Cool!

Teodor,

Very nice. Good balance between the hands and a very nice, smooth ending. Good work. Hope school is going well.

Before everyone in the Bar gets a little tipsy on green beer I'd like to play a tune in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

Elssa: Amazing performance. How can you play with your hands like that???

Augustina: A very beautiful piece! I never heard about that composer before. Great performance.

Joe: What a great reording! Thanks for sharing!!

Inlanding: That was amazing. Are you a pro?

LadyChen: Great songs and very nice performed!! I think I prefer the second arrangement. Both were great though.

Saucer: That is a nice piece. What is it? You performed it great!

John: Amazing! How fun it must be to be able to add intros like that!!

Poly: That was nice performances. Your second piece was outstanding! Great job!!

Teodor: Lovely!! How can you even see to play in a room that dark??

Bill: Another of you masterpieces!! Thanks for sharing with us here!! Cheers! smile

I got inspired by all great submissions this month. Here is what I have been working on lately; Lee Galloway's Canon Fantasy which is a variation on Pachelsbel's Canon in D.

I created an AP and a DP version of it in case some of you have a preferences as to what you prefer. I am sorry for the mistakes here and there but I am still working on this piece. smile

I've been struggling with this but can't get it much better than this at my present skill level.



Apologies for the low camera angle but I don't yet have a set up I can just 'turn to' (yet). If I'm like others I want to see how people are playing.

Bill – I only wish I could fill like that
Teodor – you inspire me
Polyphysicist - your hands look so relaxed playing op 100. I also enjoyed the piece
Elssa - you pick good tunes which suit your style
Jazztpt –very moody
inlanding – small minor, very bluesy and I think also Gershwin inspired (or that era)
amaruk - again you have me listening and enjoying classical
