“piano jam 2”–As I began playing, randomly…I started to watch the reflection of my hands in the keyboard lid…The music you’re hearing is only coming from a slight trance I put myself in, watching my hands and fingers…I never realized what my fingers and hands actually did while playing. I was so intrigued that I just kept playing whatever came through the reflection! With the music and watching the reflection, I felt very calm and content…I hope that it may do the same for you!
This piece was compose while rehearsing with Victor and Anastasia, who are currently the 3rd place world professional open ballroom champions. I was rehearsing with them at the City Lights Ball in San Jose, California…They wanted to dance waltz as part of their show, while I played live piano. During the rehearsal they decided that they really wanted to have me play for their tango encore. However, the melody I developed while rehearsing stayed in my head throughout the weekend. So, I decided that it was worth putting down on video to ensure the melody didn’t get lost. This is it, and in it’s most raw form…This song has even yet to be recorded and produced. I’m looking forward to putting this song to arrangement and seeing where it might take me. Please enjoy!!!
