I came up with this today, just playing with minor chord progressions. Goes from Gminor to Cminor, and uses a couple of unknown chords , one is D, Eb snd G, another is F G and B

Beemer – Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans This is the only piece in your second bunch of recordings I know. I am not a Jazz expert, either, but find your contemplative rendition quite appropriate and very good. I think I would play it in the same manner. Maybe I would try to put some more emphasis on the gently swinging accompaniment pattern (eights played as triplets). As far as the tempo of Jazz standards is concerned, there are a lot of examples where artists played up-tempo versions of slow songs and vice versa. As Cole Porter put it: anything goes. I cannot say much about the other pieces since I do not know them. One general thing: you have uploaded wav files which are always quite big (a lot of Megabytes). Mp3 files are much smaller without any considerable loss in quality.

Pianist 685,
Thanks for your comment about DYKWIMTMO piece and advice about swing. My last set of uploads were MP3 at 320kB/s but I was not happy with the audio quality. I have invested heavily in top quality gear, e.g two matched pair Neumann KM184 condenser mics and want to get the best recording I can.

I do understand that the normal PianoWorld recitals only accept MP3 for various reason, but the Pianobar gratefully accepts any format provided it can be easily previewed. My understanding is that my WAV files on Box.com can be read by anyone without a Box/com account and that the file can be played by streaming, i.e. without needing to download it.

I tune my own piano, so maybe my ears are too sensitive to the quality loss of MP3 where data is discarded in the interest of smaller file size.

Beemer - Nice selection. Miss New Orleans is generally taken a bit faster, more a slow foxtrot but works at various tempos. Louis Armstrong/Billie Holiday did the first version in 1947. Five pennies is a lullaby so is spot on, it's from the Danny Kaye film of the same name, which was a Hollywood biopic of Jazz Cornetist Red Nichols from 1959. Louis Armstrong was also in the Five Pennies playing hmself. Louis' first appearance is set in the mid 1920s when he was in his mid 20s but in 1959 he was 59 smile
First saw the Five Pennies when I was 9 and loved it , perhaps the first time jazz registered with me.

Don't know the other tunes.

Thanks jazztpt.

The song is usually played in B flat, but I like playing it in G. At some point I realized I can use the opening diminished chord as a connector. Since its the same chord in both keys smile

This Robbie Williams song popped into my head and I had a go at playing it, by ear.

Larry,

Great that you got that "popping out of your head". I look forward to hearing more of you playing.
