I listened to a CD by Eldar Djangirov recently which had this tune on it. I really liked how he approached it. He would go big, then go small, then go big again. He plays it with a happy Oscar Peterson vibe. I thought it would be fun to copy his approach. I didn't copy his notes, but I tried to get the same feel and same musical arcs. This was a lot of fun to do. It was a bit of a stretch because it is different than my usual style. It also gave me the opportunity to explore GarageBand a little bit more. The backing tracks were done before I recorded the piano track. I used GarageBand and Synthogy Ivory Steinway piano patch. The keyboard is a Yamaha CP300.
I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed doing this.
