Back to the studio! #filmscoring #independentfilm #miami #ELEW #jazz #jazzpiano ...

Almost in Miami! Decided to post a flashback…..My Wolverine sideburns and I had a lot of great Rockjazz moments at L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills. It has definitely taken a Long time to master my approach to the piano but damn sure had some good times in the process. So many conversations and legendary moments with the icons of our time. More to come! #ELEW #LeonardoDiCaprio #ForestWhitaker #Rockjazz #counterbop #pianoturntablism #vibe #energy #hollywood ...

#elewclips - #Counterbop #Anthropology #Oleo

Getting there. Close. It takes a lot of mental bandwidth to SWINGINGLY coordinate and compensate all the different filigrees and improvisational occurrences that happen in Counterbop. All the multitasking is still taking a lot out of my mental flexibility which impacts the quality of my melodic work but we gonna solve that efficiency equation before this month is out. Maybe even tomorrow. Gotta give y’all those good blues moves. Looking forward to recording oceans and oceans of this stuff. I don’t know if “Jazz is Dead” but I can tell you categorically, “Bebop Lives”. #ELEW #jazzpiano #CharlieParker #SonnyRollins #jazz

#elewclips - #Overtime
This little gem of contemporary musical thought comes to us from the group Knower. I was introduced to their music via the mighty @mauriceorlandomontoya and I instantly began vibing on this track. Great lyrics, gripping harmony and the fanatically absorbing drumming of Louis Cole caught my attention for a long time. Lots of repeat listens. Of course playing it solo piano is a different animal tho 😆. So here’s my first go at it. My left hand ended up warping a certain type of way but drummers that know how to backwards and forwards will get a kick out of the insinuations. (No pun intended although some drummers will hear the possibility of inverting the kick to match my left) Definitely going to add this to my active performance repertoire. Good good vibration. 🔥😤🔥 #ELEW #jazzfusion #Jazz #jazzpiano

Since I only gave Yawl 30secs on the rnb clip I decided to give you another 30secs for your daily #ELEW 1 minute masterpiece. I was playing with the framing of Oleo and Anthropology and then just decided to meander a bit. Phase displacement of Anthropology in the left hand on the final A section which actually came out nicely interestingly enough. One album at a time. I can definitely say after the next album comes out, ELEW - COUNTERBOP is next on the slate. Should be quite the masterwork. But first…….🥸 #ELEW #jazzpiano #jazz

Enjoy!
