I've been revisiting Petrucciani lately and finding out again how wonderful I find his playing. Here he is with Steve Gadd and Anthony Jackson playing his own composition September Second: Michel Petrucciani

Printer1: thanks. That's a pricey book (amazon is selling it for $60). I would be nice to play through some good transcriptions, however. I lived in New York for a short while in 1977, which was before he started playing there.

If people listen to Petrucciani and like him, I'd urge you to check out some of his solo work, as well. He was excellent in that vein.

what he does here, in the middle, from about 2:30 with only right hand, is amazing. Pure beauty of melody and rhythm http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdTo...;list=AL94UKMTqg-9CospHRsRcUkuepfLW0BtuF

I listen to him whenever I feel sorry for myself for having piano-induced aches in my neck or shoulders.

I use his arrangement for Satin Doll. Here it is (note error: bass clef notes should be D and E not G and A):

Kiedysktos: What a wonderful clip. What I love:
1. So many musicians PREACH that less is more, but then play a million notes. He has the audience (and me) in the palm of his hand with such simplicity.
2. Quotations are usually in jokes for jazz musicians, but he quotes Tea for Two and gets a laugh out of the audience.
3. This is a great example of an improviser "talking" to his audience through his improvisation and they understand exactly what he's saying.

Just great stuff.

Thanks a lot smile chromatic idea is simple but I never hit it, despite I played this song a lot. But notice he is really playing G and A. It's very slight reharmonisation, ii - V instead of ii-V-ii-V. But he may also think about just V for two bars. Oh, and I suppose there may be C# and F# instead of C and F in third bar, but I'm not sure and I can't check it out on the piano right now.

Agreed. This performance is something that's hard to forget.

I think his re-harmonization is essentially turning the D minor into G sus, and the E minor into A sus.

Yes, V sus is what I meant by talking about V.
