foster, a very classy cocktail jazz oresentation!

Is it your own arrangement?

Do you play in a local restaurant or shopping area? You seem very comfortable with this style of playing.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Tim!

Is not only "flour of my sack".

I'm only a bad imitation of my teacher Ernesto.

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVmgAQC5_ww)

Now that he recently disappeared (87yo), I've lost, a grandfather, a teacher, a friend... An example for my life.

He has played for at least 40 years between Argentina, Switzerland, Italy, Germany...

He was a poet of music. Whatever he was playing seems to me unique.

No, I still don't find a place to play my music. Only in my home or in volunteering.

I'm working for SAP as Analyst Consultant. Is better than nothing, but not challenging/exciting for me.

When I was a child I would like to be an astronomer. Now that I'm graduate in Astrophysics, and the only work that I've found in Italy is Analyst Consultant, I'm a bit demoralized.

Very nice job. I love this piece, too. Gershwin's ballads are a big part of my playing time and this one, as well as Man I Love, are played the most. (Of course, some of the Porgy tunes are right up there, too.) If you want to upload some more, I would love to hear your versions.

Many thanks Chopinlover!

In my youtube channel you can find Embreceable you too. But the audio quality isn't good.

There are many good ideas in this performance, and the playing is commendably clean. But it suffers from a complete lack of musical flow - it's just a series of unconnected phrases. Try to let the melody sing through. Even if you aren't a vocalist, pretend you ARE singing and phrase accordingly. It's a beautiful melody, let's hear it!
