My New Orleans style cover of "The Bear Necessities".

Love to know what you all think: style wise, recording quality, etc.

Hi Mickey

There were a few moments of insecurity, and style wise there seemed to be a lot of influences.

Curiously, at times I was reminded of George Gershwin's solo Piano style (which I love), and even the sound reminded me of Gershwin for some reason. It's a very happy piece of music, and your approach made it even happier.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, there are some times where I get a bit shakey.

Thanks for the comments on style, it's flattering to hear I sound a bit like Gershwin, I really love his style!
