Barb - it may be just my computer at the minute, but I can't get it to load. I'll go get some supper and come back and try again, but maybe there's a "q" wrong or something?

Cathy -- thank you. It's a work in progress -- but fun to do. Sometimes boxnet does have problems, so it may not have been your computer.

Bob - I have one of Jim Haskins Cd's. The guy is Gooooood!

Barb, nice! My excuse is I don't have a recording device at the moment. Once I get one I'll put some stuff up.

CMohr,

Thank you for your kind words. I transcribed the Intro a few years ago after listening to Monk play this tune. I never did work up an arrangement of the rest of the song until the Monk topic came up last November in the Non-Classical forum.

Lostinidlewonder, I enjoyed your 3 pieces very much. That was beautiful. I wasn't familiar with the first 2 pieces, but the last one is near and dear to my heart.

So, are you gigging at a restaurant yet?

Question. I see much mention here of something called the Sudnow method. I'm not familiar with it. How does it compare to the traditional method of learning jazz voicings? The traditional method has you start out by going around the circle of 4ths playing thirds and sevenths, then adding 9ths and 13ths, sus chords, reharmonizing, etc.

To be brief, the Sudnow Method is a non traditional approach. We play standards using all those jazzy tones right from the start. For those with no piano experience, Sudnow devised a system of dot notation that is similar to reading guitar tablature. For those with more piano experience, the dots can be ignored. We start voicing our own arrangements after playing a couple of those dot songs... Misty being #1. I recently explained the method in a thread in the Non-Classical forum. Below is the link:

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1345559/Beginners%20Confusion.html#Post1345559

Also, check out the website www.sudnow.com

Plus, do a search for Sudnow in Piano World and you will find many threads on the subject.

Also, you can PM me for any other questions.

hey Barb, did you play Round Midnight from a lead sheet or make up your own voicings? It sounds like that latter.

Wiz -- I played it while reading a lead sheet AND I voiced it as I played it. Sudnow teaches us to read from the lead sheet and to voice lushly. I don't rely on the voicings that a lead sheet occasionally suggests for chords. I control how I want it to sound.

Hey Barrb,
Just curious did you start cold in 2006 or from previous musical experience?

Hi Andrew,

I had 4 years of classical piano lessons between the ages of 9 and 13. Then, I quit piano and took up the cello. The piano was untouched until January 2006. Wish I had played all those lost years, but, I am making up for it now!

Hey Barb,
I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I had lessons from 7 to 12 or 13, the took up clarinet. No piano (except for a couple classes in college) until this last August.
The last couple months I've been working on jazz with my teacher. I'm so inspired by you and others here at PW! (and my hubby is happier that I'm learning more jazz instead of classical). He doesn't mind the classical, but is more tolerant of my practicing the jazz standards! ha
I'm enjoying this thread - glad that it got resurrected!
AND I've always loved the cocktail pianists! My hubby many times would end up singing with them (when we were in San Francisco). cool
