Btw: here's to knowing one's tradition, Jarrett plays stride (in a home recording done '66):
Holy Dim-chords Batman, I thought it was Tatum at first:

Just a short snippet of Giant Steps. Not going to do some transcription for JOTW smile

BTW - First recording using Nord Electro 4 HP. I just recorded ambient from speakers and it sounds real (minus the backing track).

Hey JW,
Nice job on Giant Steps.
I'm also not doing jotw this week.

Chris,
A lot of people play Tatum, but this is something else. The touch is incredible. It really sounds like Tatum.

This week JOTW is Autumn Leaves and a couple of other familiar tunes. Everyone should try to post.

Nicely played Jazzwee!

Here's my take on Stella (with a backing track, belive or not smile )


btw: the backing track is from Peter Erskine's app

Love it Chris! Better to hear your ideas with a backing track so we can hear the original harmony as counterpoint. With at least a bass.

Sophisticated ideas!

Thanks Jazzwee!

Credit goes to the excellent Peter Erskine on drums and Darek Oles on bass. From the: Jazz Essentials, Vol 1

I have that but haven't used it. Now tell me what you were thinking on that solo harmonically speaking. It would be nice to learn from your thought process.

Hmm, I not sure if I have one, a thought process per se, it's how I hear the tune, and how I have practiced the chord/scales. There's some slight re-harms that I do; like instead of D-7(b5), G7, C-7(b5), F7. I do D7alt, G7 alt, C7alt, etc. And the F in bar 13 I change to a A7(b9) D-7, G-7 C7,

The C- becomes a C-Maj, the Eb-7, becomes a Eb-Maj, etc no major changes. But I have worked on trying to get a melodic counter melody in the LH harmonies; guide-tones . . . this is all based on listening to Herbie (with Miles) and Keith Jarrett's versions.

Not sure if this answers your question . . .

Actually, yes that was quite helpful. I do the minor-major thing too. So that comes easily to the fingers.

Doing the ALT stuff explains the totally outside sound you do. It really sounds so interesting when you record against some harmony we can hear.

I'll be listening to that again.

Glad to be of help. It's always difficult trying to describe ones process in the moment. But interesting.
I'll share another re-harm which I picked up from Keith J's slightly uptempo version of Stella from the Yesterday album. At the last 6 bars play: Eb-7, Ab13 | D-7 G7 | Db-7 Gb 7 | C-7 F7 | nothing to write home about, but cool nethertheless.

Hi JW,
Thanks!

Here's some footage from a house party we played yesterday.

I love these kinds of gigs.

Hey Knots
I liked your confident solo. Nice comping too. Seems like you had a really good time.

Thanks Cus. I'm glad you liked it. It's fun to have video of live gigs. Also, I was really impressed because I left my cell phone outside (beyond a sliding door) and I think it picked up the sound quite well.
On a different note, this was a 1 yr old yamaha c3 in a "sun room" with windows everywhere. No piano saver system and a nice 3 foot long crack in the middle of the sound board.

I have plenty of piano trio recordings from last night. If anybody is interested, I can share a couple.
