    The a cappella group Pentatonix have scheduled a few NYC-area concerts for November and I’m trying to see which date I can go. Have you heard them yet? Take a look at this video, which was one of their first ones.

    Hey Eric, I’m glad you posted here! I’m hoping some of my other student who have experience playing weddings will comment too, but here are a few all-time favorites:

    Schubert’s Ave Maria
    Panis Angelicus
    Pachelbel’s Canon
    Ode To Joy as a recessional

    Anybody else have suggestions?

    Here’s a version of Indian Summer w/ some tasty jazz trumpet playing:

    Great stuff!!! I love those clips in the movies too. Harpo was pretty musical too 🙂

    btw, I used to live near their childhood home on E93rd Street in Manhattan. Of course they lived there almost a century earlier but it was fun thinking of them in the neighborhood!

    It’s great you’re getting so much much music to learn at church, Eric. Even though it seems crazy at times having to learn so much in a short time, it’ pays off in the long run. You’ll get quicker at it, and also you’ll already know the pieces when you see them again. Once you play the same Easter hymn for 10 Easters, you know it VERY well!!!

    Great version, Mike! But this type of uptempo is organic and actually doesn’t change the vibe (pun!) at all. It just gives a little movement to what she’s already established. The automatic double time is what drives me crazy when it happens all the time!

    Thanks for the positive feedback about the new site. And I’m glad people are enjoying the forum; it’s so important to have the support of others who are doing the same things we are.

    Keep me posted on the Flowing Water lessons. Any questions, etc. 🙂

    I have the Ella/Larkins on an old LP. I’ll have to dig it out and check how many songs are on it. Maybe the CD is different.

    Tim, I saw Ella do a concert with Paul Smith once. Amazing!

    To pose a YouTube link you just paste the url here, like this:

    Tim, Have you heard this Ella Fitzgerald album?

    It’s just her and Ellis Larkins on piano, playing mostly ballads. Wonderful, timeless music!

    A lot of the classic rock musicians mention hanging out with Holland. He must have been quite a presence on the British music scene at one point! I think there’s some stuff you him and Charlie Watts playing blues and boogie woogie, but I’m not sure.

    You should get a copy of The Real Book, volume 1. It has leadsheets for the most commonly played jazz tunes, including some great ballads.

    I’m excited about seeing the David Bowie tribute concert at Carnegie Hall on March 31:
    David Bowie tribute concert to take place at New York’s Carnegie Hall

    I didn’t grow up listening to a lot of Bowie, other than the big hits. It’s been eye-opening getting to know more of his output recently! Anyone have a favorite Bowie song or story?
