    A Nightingale sang in Berkeley Square - Steinway

    This is a favourite song of mine, dating back to 1940, which I have improvised on Authorised Steinway, in Classic perspective, and in standalone mode (so no midi editing possible).
    As it's inspired by London, there are a few chimes of Big Ben at the end, done on Steinway. The idea of this came from a pianist friend.

    Oops, I hate when that happens!

    I do like the tune and am anxious to hear your rendition, though.

    Well presented Eugene. I like this style of play. This brings back some old and warm memories. Thankyou for giving us a wonderful rendition. I like the Big Ben effect at the end (nice touch).

    That's nice, Lad! Such a great old tune it is. I enjoyed the listen. The Big Ben chimes are a clever touch.

    Thanks.

    (The correct title is "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square").

    Hi Eugene, Thanks for a nostalgic moment, there's a great old-timey vibe in your rendition. The piano sounds great, just like we're listening in a parlor somewhere while you're playing. Great song, great playing. Thanks! John

    Hello, Eugene

    Oh yes, this is a wonderful thing you've done. Great old tune and really nice performance of it. We don't hear very many "live" un-edited tracks in here, so that factor also made it a real treat.

    Thanks much.

    Eugene:

    Very nice rendition of this English Classic. The
    piano sounded really good too. Your performance
    brought back memories of some of my family
    pianists who played big band music in the 30s and
    40s. That stride touch really provided a firm
    foundation for melody.

    I keep my training wheels on when I play. No live stuff for me. I would be laughed out of here.

    Very nice playing
