This is a little sketch I have done of "Pennies From Heaven" for Piano, Bass, Drums & Guitar.
As I say it is a sketch/work in progress and there is at least one bum chord in the piano part. However, it received a couple of favourable comments on chat last Sunday, so I thought i woudl share it with you guys:
The tune is a "standard", but the arrangement is mine
The purpose behind the sketch was to exercise my brush drumming chops, see if the JABB guitar could gently chomp in the background, have a go at a George Shearing type chorus, and to see how effective JABB is in an intimate setting.
I was pleaseantly surprised at how good the drums and guitar came out - and the Shearing chorus.
I was horrified at my piano jazz chops on this one - I don't know what went wrong. My only excuse is that it was done over Christmas and I was probably worse the wear for excesses of food/drink and lack of sleep!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
Any criticisms, comments, suggestions, awards, etc., gratefully received.
