Thanks Sam! The mics I used are Audix SCX25A-PS. They came in a kit for piano, which included adjustable mic holders that mount to the piano frame. They're large condenser mics in a lollipop form factor. They live in my piano (even when the lid is down). I love them!

Thanks Doug! And thanks for the Don Grolnick comment. While I don't know as much of his music as I should it's possible he's influenced me. I remember seeing Don with the Bob Mintzer Big Band at Symphony Space in Harlem in 80's and was floored!

I just listened to Rain from your new CD and loved it. Great job! I'll listen to the rest of the CD soon.

Al that's a beautiful little piece! I agree with Jazzooo – that left hand is doing a lot of cool stuff.

I got a request from a friend for a backing track so she could do a quick "singing from home during COVID-19" video, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to do my first recording on my new-to-me Kawai.

I've never recorded piano before, and I was pleasantly surprised how well this came out at first go. The pedaling is a little loud at times, but I think maybe just pointing the mics away from the felts might solve that issue?

Also, I've never watched a recording of myself playing before. I have some funny physical habits that I didn't realize before today!

A quick and simple recording I did for my big band mates to let them know I'm looking forward to playing again. It's a Ken Hewitt arrangement of The Nearness Of You for solo piano.

Bobodeath, "What a Fool Believes" is fantastic. I am loving the vocal harmonies. Can you tell me how many vocal parts are actually being sing at 2:52-2:53 for the word "He" ?

Love this tune - I just posted over at Soundcloud as well: the rhodes sounds excellent!

For what it's worth, we're putting together the first KC Compilations project that we've done in years (Quarantunes, Volume 1).

We used to do projects like this all the time - we made fourteen CDs a bunch of years back - but it's been a while since we made a new one.

If anybody wants to add anything to the project, the thread is here.

This is a Rick Wakeman-ish piece I wrote at age 20 back in 1978, originally for a short film I worked on, The Power of Frankenstein. It's called "Tema di Victor" (Victor's Theme - for Victor Frankenstein).
I incorporated it as the first movement of a suite, The Oratorio of Lycidas, a studio release coming later this year. This live version was recorded last month.

It's mostly all 4 part. I'll double check the score.

UPDATE:

My score has 3 part triads.

Lots of truly great music happening here, guys and gals.

I don't think I ever posted this because the camera work is so sketchy--lovingly but shakingly filmed by my father in law--but here is the great Don Grusin and I performing my composition Paris in December at a benefit concert in San Miguel de Allende I produced.

What the heck, here's the kind of silliness my girl and I have been up to since the quarantine started. What's that? Why no, I definitely DON'T think we're going stir crazy and starting to lose it! What would make you suggest such a thing?

That made me literally LOL real hard.
Especially the one with the chickens.
I have one like those 2 but it’s much bigger...
What’s that 8 stringed instrument? Is that a Portuguese fado guitar or a mandocello?

It's an Irish bouzouki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_bouzouki

Minor brag: Beth is listed in the Wiki article as one of the instrument's "notable players." We'll see if the rubber chicken video effects her status in the community...

And for the record, there are lots of rubber chicken music videos where the two notes the chicken can produce have obviously been sampled and re-pitched or otherwise simulated. No such cheating with ours! We met the challenge of finding a song we could play with just those two notes, in real-time! That's right, OUR ridiculous rubber chicken videos have ARTISTIC INTEGRITY!
