Freedom Jazz Dance” is a jazz-rock piece that was composed by Eddie Harris in 1965. The “free” in the title comes from the fact that there’s only one chord, a Bb7, and during your solos you can basically play anything you like over it, going “inside” and “outside” at will.
I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my trio, my duo (called Skirt & Suit with Joshua Payne) and also with whoever asks me to join them, whenever they ask!
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.
"Who's Lovin' You" is a Motown soul song, written in 1960 by William "Smokey" Robinson. The song has been recorded by many different artists including The Miracles, who recorded the 1960 original version, The Temptations, The Supremes, Terence Trent D'arby, Brenda and The Tabulations, John Farnham, Human Nature, En Vogue, Michael Bublé and Giorgia Todrani and Jessica Mauboy. The most famous version is attributed to The Jackson 5.
I wrote this song about my little brother who we lost in a car accident when he was 17, back in 2001. Scott's birthday is approaching and this time of year always brings back happy memories from when we were kids. This song was included in my 2010 album, Just Us with guitarist, Hideaki Tokunaga.
How to play piano with a band on a Bossa Nova tune. Playing very little and very tasty is the key!
After the absolutely amazing show that Jacob put on, June 21, 2017, I went in search of an interview, and ended up with something far better! Part One of Two. More after hours AMAZING music to follow.
