Thank you for sharing that! I've never listened to anything like it before.

Anytime.  Glad you liked the piece.  John Lewis was a mother on piano, and Milt "Bags" Jackson was no slouch either on vibes.

Literally just now off the CD, Arrau doing from Debussy préludes bk. 1.  I've read through this many times, but never really learned this one.

Reminds me of Scarlatti a bit.  I like Arrau's tempo, so I think I'll use that for when I get around to playing it.

My name is Nellie, and I take pride in helping protect the children of my community through active leadership roles in my local church and in the Boy Scouts of America.  Bad word make me sad.

Clever.  Did not expect it to go that way.

Reminded me of this one.

Titular track called "Bluesnik," from Jackie McLean's album of the same name.

Speciically, Kenny Drew's piano solo. 

Yeah, just blues in Bb, but Drew knocks me out.  He attacks each line from the beginning. 

Mmm, yeah, I guess an analyst would focus on the flourishes in tritones, and the things in major thirds, but I think it's a super bad way to improvise on a blues.

ETA Darn, I think I should write it out on paper.  No, not that difficult to write out, but I should just do it and have done with it.

Several fans and an air system in the background beyond those fans.

I actually just had a dream about this piece.  More like a nightmare though.  Somehow I had all my music somewhere on a table.  And then a class of adults met in the room.  Some naive but well-meaning people took my pile of music and put one piece on each table.  After the class no one knew where my music was because people probably thought they could take the single book on the table for some reason.  I was pretty much enraged but knew it was pointless for some reason.   I wasn't going to get my stack of music back.  And you can't replace it.  Then I was thinking of what I lost and remembered this piece.
 That's when I woke up.
