Ed, that's a pretty sweet Freddie Freeloader. I must confess to not being a big Davis fan (heresy, I will admit), but this is a piece I've always liked, and you did it up right. Nice blowing, as the jazz cats used to say.

I've been on sort of a Paul Simon jag lately. This is a piano/vocal cover of his song America. I really like the lyrics and the story that he tells.

I was wondering something similar myself. Bill - have you just got the lyrics up there or the chords too? Thanks for that great version ... somewhere I have a Simon & Garfunkel songbook I need to dig out.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments.
Peyton: I love seventies musics. They have great melody and meaningful words not like the stuff I heard on radio today (like Ke$ha and Gaga sick)
Andy: I love the simplicity in your playing. I heard this piece before but this is the first time it makes me want to learn to play it
Rich: You are a pro. You can play any type of music but Blues fits you best.
Glen: That is very relaxing piece. I can sit at the bar all night to listen to that type of music.
Ed: I haven't heard this piece before but I enjoyed it a lot.
Bill: Great playing as usual. I would like to hear your accompaniment on an acoustic so it would be clearer, just because I like to learn from it thumb

BILL - Another great Simon song! I found myself singing along - you're right, it tells a great story. One of those (like almost all the Beatles' songs) that I know all the words to. Just wonderful accompaniment!

Glen and Ed - two really really nice laid-back tunes this morning - a little toe-tapping, a mellow mood before a too-busy day. Thanks! They were great.

Thanks - I'm glad you liked it. I got the lyrics and chords from a guitar book of Simon and Garfunkel songs. I improvised the fills and the rest of the piano accompanyment by ear.

Thanks, Cathy, et al!

Aside from piano bar music, here is something not often heard at your local embibery...

Still lots to work on, but such a beautiful work of art:
Thanks for indulging me...it's good to try to get past the red light on this one. It's just astonishing he wrote this and so many other timeliess works and could not hear one note of 'em.

I loved it as it was - you are right: It's so beautiful!! And I have no doubt Beethoven heard every note - just not with his ears wink

Hey, I don't want to change my username and lose my identity on this forum smile. Next time when I choose a username, I have to think about that.

Elssa, I don't know how I missed your piece the first time. But wow, that a hard one to keep up with the tempo and you played very well.

Ladypayne, that piece put a smile on my face after a long day from work.

Bill, I like your stuff, but I couldn't get this one to play continuously so I listened in 2 sec sound bites, so I think it's much more fun than what I heard laugh

ladypayne - that's a tune I've tried to get my band to play but with no success smile

GLEN-Nice work on the Beethoven! It's a real finger stretcher. It's the last piece I worked on before starting in on the jazz. I could never get the whole Adagio down smoothly.

LADYPAYNE - I agree with Andy - yee-haw, what a knee-slapper! I liked that arrangement, too.

Elssa, that was so good! You are so good with those rhythms!

Oldtimers (namely, me) are fond of saying some piece of music has brought back old memories. Well, this one really did, especially since you mentioned playing it on an organ. Here is a recording of yours truly playing this song on a Hammond Organ in (hold onto your hat) 1979!

http://www.box.net/shared/je5ezuuc2b

Pedals are fun aren't they? My organ recordings were made with a $10 cassette recorder, sitting on the floor, using the cheapest cassette tapes from Kmart, so there is an excessive amount of ooh pah pah, and a bit of hiss. But that's ok, covers up the mistakes!

I wonder why I ended in on a major chord?

Glen, If I could hear that at my local embibery, I'm afraid I'd develop a really bad drinking problem! That was very, very good.

Yes, the saddest scene I've ever seen in a movie was Beethoven with his ear down on the piano as he played, trying desperately to hear it.
