Exploring the joys of mainstream jazz piano with “My Romance”

Hey Improvisers,

As wonderful as it is to develop our unique musical personalities, it can sometimes be fun to simply play a jazz standard in “the tradition.”

Case in point: My Romance

My Romance, which was composed by the great songwriting team of Rodgers and Hart, has become the epitome of swinging, mainstream jazz piano at it’s best. When I sat down to play it during my Journey Through The Real Book, I decided to ride the wave of mainstream jazz piano, in the tradition of Oscar Peterson, James Williams, and my teacher Billy Taylor.

I had a lot of fun playing this and I hope it inspires you to do the same!

Keep swinging!
