12 bar blues
I chose the music of Meade Lux Lewis, a 1920's composer, for inspiration in recording this clip. This was a quick take so I could move on, so I stepped on a Lego in a couple of places.
I just looked him up on Apple Music - will listen later. Sounds like something I'd dig!
And I sure dig this one of yours - smooth, rolling, a laid-back and easygoing boogie-woogie. Nice playing!
Oh yeah, I love this for sure.
Add some vinyl crackle on there and it could be from one of my old 78s.
I'm thinking the little stumbles (which I would not have noticed if you hadn't pointed them out) just add to the charming nature of this tune.
Such great work!
Lovely piece. A real classic sound. Lol, "Stepped on a lego" is going to be my new go to when I miss a note.
I like the recorded sound of the piano. The way you voiced the chords to keep the 7ths on top evokes early blues really well. I also like the consistent landing on the low G on the downbeat of the second bar of each pair, which drives the tune along like a slow backbeat. Very nice.
You channelled the 20's blues vibe beautifully.
I really enjoyed this piano musical interlude. Nice bluesy feel to it.
Oh, this is wonderful, Mike. Would have taken me right back to the 20s if I'd been around then. 😀 Gorgeous, nostalgic vibe, with that bit of funky rag-time. I love @billwhite51's definition. 😉
Beautiful old-timey song. Really enjoyed listening to this this morning.
Definitely some bluesy goodness going on here.
oooh what a lovely piece. Well done
sounds like a slow ragtime..rag time, when the woman is on the rag and you have to wait. whorehouse music. music to listen to until one of the girls upstairs is free. a .form of the blues, to be sure...and very nicely played here.
don't know what stepping on some legos mean, but whatever works right....Just adore this old timely kind of piano playing so cool...
I'm gonna have a listen to MLL
