Mercer Ellington has stated that Juan Tizol conceived the melody to "Caravan" in 1936 as a result of his days studying music in Puerto Rico, where they couldn't afford much sheet music so the teacher would turn the music upside down after they had learned to play it right-side up. This "inversion" technique led to a modal sound throughout Tizol's work - wikipedia entry for "modal jazz"

Kind Babe Blues by Stumpy Johnson (my first piano song)
« on: September 10, 2021, 05:23:26 PM »
Hello everyone!
I've been playing some piano lately. My friend kindly borrowed one of his digital piano to me a few months ago. I've been trying to learn to read music and some basic music theory from the book: Piano ABC. It's a book for the children (and adults like me!) :)
I've been also trying to learn some piano blues. I've been learning one song by Walter Davis and one by James "Stumpy" Johnson. I don't now if there's many (any?)piano players on the forum, but i'll share my take on Stumpy Johnson anyway. Many mistakes and many "wrong" notes but what the... I love my piano! ( my borrowed piano) :)
Comments are welcome! :)
 


Cheers from Helsinki, Finland

Igor
