A very lovely way to start my day, thank you. Interestingly I ended last night listening to Rod Stewart singing that on his Great American Songbook CD. Your playing has a cool, relaxed style, caressing the keys so confidently. May I ask what piano you have there and how long you've been playing?

HI
So glad the recording has helped give you a good start to the day!
I've been playing most of my life so getting on for over 40 years!

I'm actually using a Roland FP 50 stage piano but the sounds are all recorded using PianoTeq on my computer.

Well Simon, that would explain your relaxed confident style. I also have a Roland, I bought it in November, a 501R.

One thing I noticed with the digitals is all the different types with letters and numbers and I have no idea what they all are and the differences between them. Sometimes late at night I switch it to strings accompaniment and play just for pleasure easy arrangements of smushy love/film songs like Secret Love, I can't stop loving you (that one with choral so it sounds like the Ray Charles version...sort of...) Love is a many splendored thing, Over the Rainbow, ain't Misbehavin'. I would love to have the laid back piano lounge style but it's a long way off yet. I wish I'd kept it up more from when I was young.
