A quick ditty I did recently to test a new Bidule layout I've been working on, soloing on two choruses of the great Bill Evans tune. I had a little fun with my octave transpose buttons at the end.

Beautiful Rob! Great tune. I liked your performance so much I watched it twice.

Enjoyed it Rob ! I should learn that tune. It has been so long since I played on a 61 note synth board, I wonder if I could even do it anymore...lol

It didn't seem to bother you in the least, nice playing !

Thanks guys. No the 61 note unweighted board doesn't bother me – that's pretty much all I've been playing the last 25 years! It takes me a while to get comfortable on a real piano, and I'm pretty useless on anything with a heavy or slow action – it messes me up big time. I do appreciate the opportunity to play a good one, believe me.

In my younger days it was all McCoy... then Herbie... Chick... now I'm just trying to play ballads like Bill! I've been working up "Alfie" in every key, this is the sort of thing I do for fun these days!

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.
