Thank you so much Jazztpt! I've received some very thoughtful public and private comments on this one. It felt like it was bottled up for a long time and asked permission to come out in as simple a way as possible.

Bill, I think I like your version of Thunder Road better than Springsteen's. It's just perfect, and you capture the mood of the song just right. Then again, I've never been a big Springsteen fan. Near sacrilege, I know.

Rick, I already commented on your video in the other thread, but it is worth repeating. There isn't too much that will beat this in the fun department. "Everybody give it up for Ricky Henson on the grand piano . . . " Funny looking grand, but I love it. I think I may have said this before, too, but Mark's playing reminds me a bit of the Vaughan brothers.

pianonewb, when I saw the title I was expecting a different song. This is very nice. It must be a real hassle to upload over dialup, though. I would never have the patience for that.

Glen, I've been messing about with the other Angel Eyes recently, so I was rather hoping to hear that one. I think it's a bit older than the mid 40's, though. Fun song, and a fun listen. Edit: the fast version is nice, too, but I find I'm partial to the slower tempo.

Lee, all at once am I several stories high listening to you play this one. I did a version of this for a recital some years back, and it remains one of my favorite songs.

Ken, you've captured the essence of what Autumn Leaves is about. It really wasn't intended to be an uptempo romp (although it obviously works well as such), but rather a lament of sorts.

Haven't been able to play much lately - still nursing a sore shoulder - but really enjoying everyone's wonderful recordings here. smile

Here's a real oldie with a pretty melody...hope you enjoy.

Seaside Lee. I missed On The Street Where You Live. That's a thoughtful version. This song reminds me of when I was very young.

Thanks, Dennis! Yes, it is quite difficult to upload on dial up. But I think it's worth it in this case.
Watching Youtube videos takes a great deal of patience as well. A 3 minute song takes about 20-30 minutes to load up before I can actually watch/listen without constant buffering pauses. And then you run across the occasional one that won't load up at all for whatever reason, LOL.
There's an old saying, "It is what it is". grin

Elssa, your Blue Moon is quite pretty. Hope that sore shoulder feels better soon. I have a more or less permanent sore shoulder that really needs surgery . . . but I am too stubborn to have it.

Elssa - Welcome back! I really like the lush voicings and smooth runs on Blue Moon. This is one of my favorites. I hear myself playing it to a super slow tempo with a bass player, yet with a trillion perfectly placed notes ala Kenny Barron, but alas it is never to be.

This is a a super arrangement. Is this yours?

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forums as a member but i've been browsing around a while. English isn't my main language so excuse me if my writing isn't all that great. Here personally i've been playing classical since i start playing piano being young. I didn't play for like 10-15 years and now i'm back. That being said, here is my first contribution to the piano bar!

Its a piece by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Songs without words Op.30 no.1. I haven't seen any classical music on here (or i missed it?) so i hope you guys enjoy it. Honestly i kinda feel alone between those jazz + pop musicians and composers but here it is anyway :





Ladypayne : Thats a quite stunning composition you got there, wish i could compose like that! You have talent!

Amaruk : I have this book at home and never learned nor listened to Comptine d'été no.2 (learned no 1). Now i want to learn it! This is such a great rendition, you bring up the melody in BOTH hands very well. Awesome dynamics. Bravo!

Kenjazz : Just wow! That can't be all midi is it? That saxophone is just too good to be midi…Anyway, thats some professional work to me.

Elssa : Awesome playing! Does that e-piano have some audio output? It'ld sound so gorgeous with real audio. Very good performance tho!

In past few weeks concentrated at tuning my piano. So no posting at beginning of month. It has so many great posts here so I have to use an afternoon to listen to the music.

Ladypayne: The higher notes like bell chime, very nice.
Amaruk: The videos are very good. I like the Yann's sheet music too.
Mark...: Very fluent playing.
Kenjazz: Very nice. It has evening mood. Autumn Leaves has autumn feel, although most trees here are ever green.
Inlanding: Early October, very nice. Angel Eyes is very good too.
BillM: Thunder Road, first time hear this song. Your sing is so great.
Rickster: Your family band is very cool.
Falmc: I had played the classical guitar version. The piano version is very good too.
cgyan: Why tear? So many good music here. No more tear forever.
pianoewb: The blues progression is very good.
Newman: The record is very good. The acoustic piano's tune is warm. Your voice is very cool, it like Rod Steward.
Eeaside Lee: Very good playing.
Elsa: The moon is shining.
slpianoprojectg: The song without words and the recording are very good.

Elssa~ that was a very excellent Blue Moon! Your playing is very smooth and controlled. I do hope you continue to improve. I am still recovering from a shoulder surgery and ankle surgery along with some associated complications. Be patient as best you can.

slpianoproject~ I really enjoyed your take on Mendelssohn! You play very relaxed and fluid, bringing out many of the fine nuances of the music. Welcome to the Piano Bar!

Weiyan- I will have to listen to your submission from a different computer when I am home later today.

A fun piece to play. I've been working on this off and on for quite a long time but never committed to actually finishing it off until now. I really enjoy Yann Tiersen's style of music and will hopefully look at some of his other pieces in the future.

Yann Tierson - La valse d'Amelie
