Description
This masterpiece was written by Vernon Duke in 1934 for a Broadway Play: "Thumbs Up". I've taken it and applied my own interpretation to it. I lived in New York for 15 years, and i remember well the special feeling you get there in the fall. I tried to capture that feeling in this production, all from my piano. No backing tracks or loops.

As nice
a piece as I've ever heard. I hear a drumbeat. your piano does that, too? Or else, you hired a drummer. Bravo. Thanks.

Great interpretation
Oh wow.... you're right this is ambient in a way.... a thought - an impression..... of a wonderfully recognizable song. The bass line is very expressive and drives this song. I can tell this is a work of love. What a great song to have in your collection as your own.

Real nice
I'm not familiar with this piece but your interpretation is beautiful. Driven along by a fabulous bass sound and understated percussion. The strings just make it. Quite lovely!

Hi Sylvia.....
I love this piece. It reminds me of George Shearing and his arrangements. Full of chords and harmony. A great mix and very evocative.

Take care.

I like your take on this chesnut. Some really nice arrangement flourishes--drums and bass are spot on. Cool re-harmonizations throughout. Great ending!

Sylvia! Wow! Wow! This is so delicious! I love your vision on this interpretation, really evokes a mood. You're playing is vintage styled and I love dynamics of this piece, I believe it's one of your best ever, and that's really saying something. Love it!

Love this song
It's actually not very raucous or heavy metal like mine, but it's a great, great song. Nice playing. I bet it would be cool with just the piano part.

Nah!
I rarely do raucous and heavy metal, but I just might surprise you someday! I'm glad you came by. Do come again.

Wow
Just gorgeous music. I love the arrangment. So infectious and memorable
It would lend itself well to vocals but would probably
remain even more amazing on its own. Really nice!

Hi folks. I hope you will enjoy my piano tunes. I play and arrange them all on either the Yamaha Clavinova or the Korg keyboard, never use backing tracks or loops. But if if I decide to try that someday you'll be the first to know!. It feels real... [see more]
