piano meditative improvisation
A lullaby for Paul, who gave me this title.
If Satie had a double-shot espresso, he would have written this, but he didn't and you did. Simply lovely. I can imagine @fearlessflight2014 playing a double bass compliment to this one. Fitting tribute to hoops, whom I never met, but have felt his influence these past 11 years.
The cascading notes of the waterfalls alternating with the doorbell like chords as the piece opens does a good job of introducing the theme of the piece which is then expanded upon through the improvisation. I really liked how this sounded and worked.
Oh really lovely and poignant! You improvise so well. A fitting tribute.
Very expressive piece that conveys all the joy and sadness that comes with the loss of a friend. I love that you used a title he gave you; it puts even more of him in it. It also reminds me of an improv that pianist David Sancious played after John Lennon's death. A solo piano can be so effective, and you remind us of that here.
Very beautiful. Thought provoking and relaxing at the same time. You move do easily between complete serenity and more staccato hits with some discord. It all comes together and makes a wonderful tribute. Thank you for sharing
Wow - that surprised me. No words or human voice or photograph or moving image yet a lot of emotion came through to me - the most moving piece of music I've heard on FAWM so far - made me think of the YouTube videos of Paul I watched recently but in slow motion with this as the soundtrack. I completely agree with all the other comments.
Lovely improvisation, Nancy. Just the right spice of dissonance. Just the right sense of spontaneity. Oh... so sad at some points... fine playing, truly... thanks for sharing!
Really beautiful. Love the chord choices. You have a varied palette to paint with
This is lovely. It is saturated with emotion. Beautiful melancholy piece.
Aaaw... Yes, this title definitely sounds like him, and what it has inspired you is simply wonderful. He would have loved it, that's for sure. The feel of this piece has a serene feel I know he enjoyed so much, a calm and collected flow, saying what it has to say, no more, no less.
This is really beautiful, Nancy. Thanks for sharing.
He would have loved this, of course, with that cascading riff into something stately and so bill-evans-y, perhaps, as well. This is beautiful and engrossing, a wonderful job.
The piano sound is beautiful, the waterfall is cascading in the notes, and the doorbell is ringing, "Doorbell, doorbell, doorbell...". How coolis that? I love programmatic pieces like this. It has touches of Satie, Keith Jarrett, Ives... Lovely.
Every note speaks calm and love and hope ...
