High Fives!
Really tasteful re-arrangement of one of Beethoven's most controversial and well-known pieces. You are a master yourself, at choosing motifs from these pieces, and reworking them into smooth-flowing jazz renditions... time for me to go out and buy another album of yours :-)
ttfn,

Have to say "bloody
excellent" and get sent to the back of class for swearing (if I wrote what i was really going to say ******* Excellent I might be on the way to see the Head.....or Principal !)

I never suspected that Ludwig could loosen up like that,I am familiar with Mnsr Jaques loissier and his interperetations of Johann and family,but hey this treatment of straight as a die Herr Beethoven,masterly sir....so there is an album of this stuff,hmmmmmmm it's my birthday soon ! I may treqat myself....and after having treqated myself (whatever arcane ritual that may be ) I may treat myself to a copy of the CD.

Cheers

This is...
... exceptionally beautiful! A real toe-tapping version of this classic.

You know, listening to this brought an image of Jerry Reed (or Richard Smith, as a living example) rockin' out your arrangement with this groovy walkin'-bass line. Thanks for the treat!

One of MJ's best posts, for sure. Congrats on the new CD!

Sexy!
Love those sassy chords. This is good fun, great playing! Beethoven would love this, I'm sure. If he could hear it, that is, what with being deaf. And dead.

I love the bawlzee perfect solid unisons quality p-120 output
also kind of like a darius / dave brubeck 'take five' feel in 4/4
a nice minor 9th to finish it off -
seeming like a perfect A.M. refreshment / classical / fusion alternating teeter totter yes . . .
really rich clean sound quality . . .
this is exciting and acts as my replacement for
jasmine green tea this morning . . .
