This was a first take/one take wonder. I got from beginning to end in one go without any huge mistakes (there's a first time for everything).
It's another old song of mine from 1980/81 recreated as a piano number. I humbly suggest it's in the style of English pop songs that goes from Ray Davies of the Kinks to Difford and Tilbook of Squeeze (well, that was my aim anyway).
Seaside_Lee~ nice montage of music from the UK! Thanks for bringing it to the bar!
stumbler~ another fine Strathspey from you. Such a pretty melody and storyline your bring to the fore with this piece.
Newman~ Another Day, Another Drama! haha! What a great title. I really like the upbeat rhythm and fun lyrics. You must have quite a lot of other recordings yet-to-be-released. Look forward to more for sure.
Here`s one I had to work bloody hard at. On Piano No 3, the out of tune one. Me fingers are stuck at full stretch permanantly now; I look funny walking down the street heh heh (Sorry, Simon. Sorry Garfunkel . . .)
Actually I'm only a quarter Scott, a grandmother from Edinburgh. I've been there once, but it was in May---so fairly pleasant. I'm in Canada, far enough away, hopefully, to be safe from their retribution for what I've been doing to their music
There is such a wonderful mix of music in this thread every month. I have to admit to being a bit intimidated by it, but I decided to join you. Stumbler I absolutely love the Scottish music you have been contributing!
Here are a couple of pieces from my evening sight reading stack.
Every time I try to record something for the recital this piece feels like my theme song: From the Wizard of Oz - If I only had a Brain
Sometimes I find the problem is my brain, especially when recording. My brain chooses the most inopportune times to pop up and say "look here comes that section that you always make a mistake" or "no mistakes so far and you are almost at the end of the piece --- gotcha !!"
Peterws - Your Bridge Over Troubled water is outstanding. I was going to post my version for the recital, but glad I didn't after hearing yours. You just nailed the piano part, and I love your bluesy improvised ending.
Jazzwee - very cool. Did you add reverb to the recording or is that the room's natural sound. Either way, this is a fine performance and recording. The piano solo was worth the wait - you saved the best for last.
