Autumn Leaves

Found this under suggested play list in my youtube...

It's like there are so many jazz experts online, and even though they posted the playing with the full score playing...u still can't catch so MUCH info they have posted coz the music is going pretty fast (tho u can pause it), but to learn and properly digest the logic behind their improvisation, it really takes sometime....Sigh......im like when can i play like them everytime i watch them play...Learning is a lifetime.

Found it to be very intelligent playing, lots of ...Read more

Finally taking formal jazz piano

Finally tomorrow, i'd try out formal jazz piano lessons at my own school.

I'm pretty excited as this means a lot to me, it's something i always wanted to learn properly. The thing is whether the teacher is good enough and suitable for me. From what i enquired, the admin staff portrayed him to be an advisor in jazz education in the school, and has masters and diploma in both classical and jazz piano. And from what she says, he seems pretty enthusiastic about jazz too, which is good.

It's pretty ...Read more

Secret & Cougars

Tell you a secret, im a cougar...

Heh, just twisting the topic words.
