To get July's Piano Bar going, here's a very short cut of Einaudi's Indaco (intro) with an improvised finish.

...and along a similar line, an improvisation called, Side In
https://www.box.com/s/2czvdsx5r4a19ymjkwc9

Hope you have a great July!

I just can't believe July is here already.

Glen, both pieces were very pretty. They match the mood of the morning here, extremely enjoyable.

Both are great. The second one creates such a untroubled mood that I just closed my eyes and enjoyed the feeling. Thanks for that!

Here is "The Very Thought of You" by Ray Noble.

http://snd.sc/1cJGuey

I recorded the piano accompaniment in the original key of Ab and was using the recording to practice my singing. On a lark, I used Reaper to transpose it down to Eb and I really enjoyed singing it in a more laid-back register. Probably ought to slow down the tempo for an even more laid-back vibe.

Here's the original comp track in Ab before pitch-shift http://snd.sc/12iLody

The is my piano, recorded in my home, pitched down with software and then the vocal recorded in exactly the same room without moving the microphones. It's a "Mid-Side" recording using a Neumann TLM102 (Mid) and AKG Perception 420 (Side) together on each track.

I'm always a sucker for any Einaudi tune but I must say, based on your performance of the intro, "Indaco" is sounding like a new favorite of mine. Very lovely touch and tone Glen.

Scorpio, Rick, yester, and Brent H - thank you so very much for your kind words and encouragement. I hope that when I can practice again, I will finish learning to play the other two sections of Indaco and post it. I am so glad you enjoyed the improvisations.

Brent, your rendition of, The Very Thought of You, is wonderful. I am a huge Neumann fan, too. It's good to hear how nicely the TLM captures the sound of your piano and voice. The over-dub of your voice after you transposed the audio is completely transparent. I really enjoyed the accompaniment and it's clear you are listening to the music as you sing. Thank you for your music. Great work!!

Glen

Awhile back, I captured these old standards and did not write down their names. Also, the melody line got lost in the notes. The first one might be All of You, but I can't tell - oops. wink Not sure what the second one is, either. Hope you like the combo attempt and can identify the tunes.

That microphone is sort of a "be careful what you wish for". When I'm singing nicely it will make the sound glorious. But it's so detailed that any little rough spot or momentary slipup is RIGHT THERE too!

Long-term goal is to play and sing at the same time. But in the mean either singing or playing takes 101% of my attention. The neat thing is I record the piano part first and then I can play it in my car and practice singing on the way to and from work every day.

Yes, Brent, a really good microphone is very revealing. I've used the Neumann U87 for voice-over work - great fun it was.

...playing and singing is great art and skill. As you probably know, we have several Piano Bar regulars that are so great at it. I always look forward to listening/watching them play. Look forward to you sharing some of your accompaniments. I am sure if you simplify the accompaniment for your singing one of your most common tunes, we'll all get to enjoy your work, sooner than later. wink

I can do a "Easy Piano" version of Danny Boy and sing along. That's about where I am right now, give me a tune and words I've known for 100 years and a bog-simple piano arrangement and I can maybe fake it. That's a start!

Inlanding - Those low notes go on forever! Very relaxing but a tad melancholy methinks. . . good stuff!
Your second crop was more easylistening; like an old time Steam Gathering. Loads o` atmosphere. I enjoy this greatly.

Brent, they don`t write `em like that anymore! The intro reminiscent of "San Francisco" - (The loveliness of Paris . . . .) All very romantic . . .nice, nice!

My mom has a large, porcelain bulldog decorating her living room (long story). Right next to her piano, as it turns out. When I did this one for her a few days ago her comment was "I think I even saw that bulldog shed a tear". High praise indeed from the bulldog!

And you did it real nicely! I adore your power to practice singing AND playing - I practice only playing and this ist enough excessive demand for me... great, keep on!

Inlanding - I enjoyed your Indaco intro. You play this with restraint and style. Nothing overly flashy - just the essence of the music.

Side In was similarly restrained but was more to my liking as you gave this a few of your patented blues licks. Nice resolve at the end. As always, your piano sounds fabulous. A high quality recording.

That's a fun version. At various moments I think it's about to go into a ragtime groove...no it's a Gershwin thing...no wait it must be...PeterWS's Original!

Very cool. Makes the typical "Misty" rendition sound like a lullaby.

Yeah, it took me 10-15 minutes to get peterws's Misty link to load. Some kind of Soundcloud crash going on. Now my links are unreachable. Presumably they'll get it sorted shortly.

I think Soundcloud caught whatever flu bug the Piano World forum had yesterday about this time!

P.S. At the moment it is back up.

Now I'm showing Soundcloud being down completely. My browser shows a "Can Not Make Connection" error. They are having site/server problems.

Too bad, his "Misty" was very cool ;-)

Here is another in my series of performances of the work of 20th Century artist E.A. Presley. The piece was composed by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller in 1958. I'm working from a transcription for solo piano and voice.

peterws, Bill, yester, and jfmartins - thank you for your kind comments on my improvisations and I am glad you like the sound of my Dad's old piano. Your encouragement is really appreciated.

peterws~ Misty is always a crowd pleaser and your interpretation follows that line. I loved the changes you utilized with this. I liked the idea you used no steady tempo, but just played it as you felt it. It sounded to me like you were having fun bringing out your own expression - great stuff for sure.

BillM~ Your rendition of Don't is spectacular. It sounds to me like you've played this or sung this so many times over the years - the vocal delivery is very relaxed and the accompaniment is perfect for this tune. It left me smiling the entire time - wonderful.

Glen

Brent - I`m wondering about Soundcloud. Apparantly they have a time out function which may require signing in regularly . . like every hour, to use it . .

Perhaps "misty" was toooo cooool ha ha crazy

Brent H - I tried your link this morning and it works. I'm glad I got to hear your version of this great old song. You sing and play with a relaxed style that is very appealing. I'm partial to vocal music, old standards and solo acoustic performances - yours pushed all the right buttons. Well done.

peterws - Your link is working this morning. This is one of my favorite tunes - it was the very first recording I posted to ABF (it was nowhere as good as yours). You give this piece a new twist - a little higher energy and faster tempo than one normally hears. I like it very much. Cool ending. You are not only an awesome pianist you are also quite creative in your arrangements.
