My version of How Insensitive

Post by chackyjazz on Fri Feb 20, 2009 4:24 pm

Dear All,

Here I'm glad to present my version of How Insensitive a jazz piano standard by Jobim.

It's ok to post non classical piano performances??

Well I hope you watch my video and let me know your suggestions and comments..

Thanks in advance.

Hey ^_^ I left a comment on your video

This is what I said:

hey, not bad ^_^ quite good for a first performance! You've got some potential here!

What you could do to improve is build your phrases to the key notes to help use expect them a little more.

Sometimes it seems the rhythm is a tad stumbly? I'm not sure though since I am unfamiliar with the piece.

You look relaxed so that's good, keep it up!

Sounds a bit like the Love Boat Theme or at least a melody that could have been played on that series.... Not that I watch Love Boat, but used to when I was a Kid Razz hehe

Good Job Smile

Thanks for your comments Andrew and Thomandy.

I think i'm not getting the idea from your first suggestion:
What you could do to improve is build your phrases to the key notes to help use expect them a little more.

Could you please explain it a little more..??

Sometimes it seems the rhythm is a tad stumbly? I'm not sure though since I am unfamiliar with the piece.

Another question, what does "stumbly" means...??

Talking about the rhythm I have problems with hands independence in this case playing a bossa nova bass pattern in the left hand while improvising in the right hand.

I am working scales and arpeggios with the left hand in order to gain a little more dexterity in it. =D

That's nice!
I love Tom Jobim (of course, I'm Brazilian)
By the way, this piece called "Insensatez" (translated to "How insensitive") was inspired in Chopin's Prelude op. 28 nr. 4, one of my all-time favorites.
oh, and that's originally Bossa Nova, not Jazz =)

That´s a nice information. I didn´t know that it was inspired in Chopin´s Prelude. I´m going to check it out.. Thanks.

By the way... Bossa Nova was one of the first fusions made between jazz and "latin" rythms. This and other latin tunes (bossa novas, mambos, etc) are included as jazz standards repertorie.
