Happy belated birthday Inlanding.

I'm not a beginner, by any chance, but I thought of posting something here in any case, especially since I'm a bit out of my comfort zone.

This was a lot of fun to listen to! I'm always intrigued by how different people approach keeping a sense of improv movement going w/o using a walking bass line. What was interesting in your improv was that you had the same rhythmic pattern patern playing in the same register, but the melody was switching both above and below the rhythm register. Were you switching hands or doing a cross-over? Very cool sound.

Thanks Ken,

It was cross-over, though I guess it could also be played by switching hands (but it would be more difficult I think).

I would love to have drums and bass in, but alas I only have 2 hands! laugh

Nikolas, that was terrific! The combination of relentless pulse (how do you manage to keep your timing so absolutely rock solid?) and those unexpected harmonic changes gave me a feeling as if I'm zipping along at breakneck speed on a train ride over mountain passes, with the rails twisting one way (oh no, we are going off the cliff on the right), then the other (oh no, now we're about to go over the cliff on the left). Very exciting music, to me. I would say this would make excellent movie music, except for the fact that I would be listening to the music instead of watching the movie! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Nickolas - welcome to the piano bar! Nice, free-flowing ideas over the continuous beating chord changes. Thanks for sharing your original improvisation. I enjoyed the fast paced strumming- great energy, indeed!

Scorpio, I enjoy Elton JoHn's music over the years and I'm not I've heard it in the piano bar before. Very nice work.

Elsaa ~~ great to see you back in the bar! Thanks so much for your kind words. Yesterday is one of my all-time favorite Beatles tunes, too. You play it so very beautifully!

Glen, nice swinging feel there. And, oh, when I noodle without preconceived structure, I noodle in C major, as any low life person would surely do. D flat? My hat's off to you!

Scorpio, well done on the Elton John tune. You play with real conviction.

Elssa, my fav Beatle tune, for sure. As usual, you created an introduction that actually introduces (what a novel idea!), and ended with a fitting flourish. Nicely done.

Have had zero time for PW for a while, and it's just SO nice to be able to come to the piano bar and listen to some new and old music. Picked up my spirit smile

YESTERDAY




Ellsa , impressive playing, I wish had the neurons to play similar. The improv made the song fuller and I could imagine you'd play something like Rachmaninoff ( anything ) well;
I've been havin' a difficult time with it (Romance no 8 op 2) for a couple weeks myself.
But I am also working on Jealous Guy by J. Lennon, (too) it 's a simple melody that i may improvise with but a pretty emotive song .

and Until I make to to a library , I'll comment on songs I haven't heard here .


Cheers!!!

I played this piece many many moons ago when I was taking lessons but I've always loved the piece so I decided to resurrect it. I included a stringendo section after listening to Cherkassky perform it with that section:

Here's another piece I recorded at the same time as I was recording Melody in F. I thought I'd make a Happy Birthday recording for family and friends and anyone who enjoys this song:



HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
