This was a first take/one take wonder. I got from beginning to end in one go without any huge mistakes (there's a first time for everything).

It's another old song of mine from 1980/81 recreated as a piano number. I humbly suggest it's in the style of English pop songs that goes from Ray Davies of the Kinks to Difford and Tilbook of Squeeze (well, that was my aim anyway).

Seaside_Lee - what a nice tune! You have a wonderful style of playing. You could definitely find work in a real Piano Bar.

Seaside_Lee~ nice montage of music from the UK! Thanks for bringing it to the bar!

stumbler~ another fine Strathspey from you. Such a pretty melody and storyline your bring to the fore with this piece.

Newman~ Another Day, Another Drama! haha! What a great title. I really like the upbeat rhythm and fun lyrics. You must have quite a lot of other recordings yet-to-be-released. Look forward to more for sure.

Hey Stumbler . . . I take it you`re a Scot! D`ya live in that area perchance? It`s a nice part o` the world in Summer I believe. . .not as dour as the music might suggest!

Actually I'm only a quarter Scott, a grandmother from Edinburgh. I've been there once, but it was in May---so fairly pleasant. I'm in Canada, far enough away, hopefully, to be safe from their retribution for what I've been doing to their music grin

Petersw, nice rendition.

BTW, what was the bird in the pictures? It looks a little like what call a robin over here---which isn't a robin, but actually a thrush---but way too small.

I put this together to test and work on some video software tricks from the "Video/Audio" thread. Didn't pan out (pun intended)...:)

Anyway thought I'd get some extra mileage and post it here...

After I put it on You Tube I saw a lot of others like it and they said it was Grade 5, which surprised me...

Hi Stumbler . . these are the Friendly Neighbourhood Robins. They get fed by the hotel guests who just happen to be outside the door. Smoking . . .to which the management is sympathetic. . .

Mark, one thing I love about the ABF is that I get to discover so much new music. I'd never heard of Gedike, nor this piece before. Nice playing.

Peterws - nice work and a very full sound. Is that the view from your backyard? Wow.
Mark - Congratulations on the cross over hands. I wouldn't try it myself yet.

Backyard? Heh heh. Hotel window, my friend! Celebs get there now and again to discuss business . . . but in January, it`s cheap. Which is why me and `er were there . . . .

Mark~ nice video there! I'd like to hear the left hand voice a bit more. It could be where you have the microphone placed. Good playing, for sure.

jazzwee~ I'd not heard Beatrice until now. Great combo work. Your phrasing is outstanding

Jazzwee, it didn't click the first time I listened to it, but after listening to a couple other versions on you tube, I went back to yours and it made a lot more sense. Nice performance.

There is such a wonderful mix of music in this thread every month. I have to admit to being a bit intimidated by it, but I decided to join you. Stumbler I absolutely love the Scottish music you have been contributing!

Here are a couple of pieces from my evening sight reading stack.

Every time I try to record something for the recital this piece feels like my theme song: From the Wizard of Oz - If I only had a Brain

https://www.box.com/s/ccpznevz9j30n2tundec

The second is just a fun little Jazz Waltz - Splash of Indigo

https://www.box.com/s/vhyaurvzxt4zb10psrjh

Hope the links work and you like them!

SwissMS, I'm happy you like them.

Great sight reading!

Sometimes I find the problem is my brain, especially when recording. My brain chooses the most inopportune times to pop up and say "look here comes that section that you always make a mistake" or "no mistakes so far and you are almost at the end of the piece --- gotcha !!"

Newman - I like your bouncy, upbeat Another Day, Another Drama. The bridge changes the mood a bit but it seems to work.

Peterws - Your Bridge Over Troubled water is outstanding. I was going to post my version for the recital, but glad I didn't after hearing yours. You just nailed the piano part, and I love your bluesy improvised ending.

Jazzwee - very cool. Did you add reverb to the recording or is that the room's natural sound. Either way, this is a fine performance and recording. The piano solo was worth the wait - you saved the best for last.
