Chick Corea with Bobby Mcferrin – Autumn Leaves

This is a beautiful duo performance by the master jazz pianist Chick Corea and the incredibly versatile virtuoso vocalist Bobby Mcferrin.

It’s one of my favorite jazz Youtube videos at the moment, because it’s an amazing example of rhythmic interplay, varied textures, use of time and space, jazz idioms, and synergy and flow in a performance. There are killer solos by Chick Corea and Bobby Mcferrin. I have watched this video like 20 times by now, and I still get new ideas every time I watch it. During the performance Mcferrin makes a joke about being “not quite sure of” the line about the sunburned hands – perhaps he or his special someone doesn’t get sun burns! 5 stars! [Via Youtube]

Learning new audio software

I got a Macbook and am trying to learn how to use the audio software on it. So far I am pretty much a newbie. Here is my first “track” that I created using the Macbook. It’s a very quickly put together version of a cool original tune “Surprise Peas” which I would like to record properly someday! Please excuse the cheesy midi instruments. Mmm cheese.

> Surprise Peas – MP3 time 1:43. Original song by Geoff Peters 2008.
