The Irving Berlin classic. Me fiddling around in a jazzy cover. Multiple vocals, a little guitar, and one persistent shaker. An amalgam of all the ssets of lyrics used since it was originally written. [more inside]
The American standard by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schwandt, and Gus Kahn. This is my jazzy little version. Started with some noodling and became a proper song. And very easily inspired by the version by Mama Cass Elliott. [more inside]
Here's a version of the old standard I did with my friend Emily. I love this woman's voice and had a great time working on it.
This is a cover of the jazz standard. I sing and play upright bass, and have a buddy on guitar. [more inside]
Lately I've been in a mood to sing vintage romantic standards in a very straight up way. Some day I want to do a version of this song inspired by Anita O'Day. This ain't it. You can still feel free to dance, though! [more inside]
Possibly the geekiest use of "Nature Boy". [more inside]
I'm jumping back into music with both feet right now, so here's another rehearsal recording for your listening pleasure. This sweet tune was introduced by Nat King Cole back in 1952. You young whippersnappers probably remember it from elsewhere though. Sigh. [more inside]
Another excerpt of a previous too long post. Tired of playing over improvised and random changes, I brought the Ellington tune to Olivier. I played the rhythm track, he played the melody, then I managed to play a solo. Hope you like it.
My favorite jazz standard, done as a solo acoustic guitar piece. Apologies for the audio clipping at 2:02. (For some reason, the MeFi audio preview is playing it in a lower key and slightly slower; I'm not sure how to fix this, so I'll leave it as is.)
