6/7/14: Old Blues #3 (from the Show)

This is the opening selection from my new one man show, Piano Diaries. The show, fittingly, ends with “New Blues #3 in G”. Will post that when I get a decent video….

8-31-12: Old Blues #1 (Video)

This comes from a live streaming video session, shot at Taylor Studios in Milwaukee. “Old Blues #1” is (obviously) the first of this set of blues I’m writing in the “old” style, as a counterpoint to the New Blues set I’m also writing. The key feature of this particular piece is the way the left hand plays the tune and accompaniment (really three parts: base, chords, melody) while the right hand improvises freely over the top.
