"But Beautiful, Take 2" Is Beautiful!
As a fellow pianist, I have always had a love for easy jazz, big band & Gershwin. I grew up in a home with 3 upright pianos, a Victrola, 200+ 78rpms & no television till 1972. I was only 4 or 5 when I began teaching myself how to play, by putting on a record & plunking it out one note at a time, with 1 finger. That started in 1968/69.
By the time the television was introduced into our home, I had become a bit of a mimic, playing exactly what I heard on those 78's.
All that to say this...
...I have an ear for true talent, and beautiful music. And, that's exactly what I just listened to. Your style reminds me of the late great Johnny Costa, as in the pianist of "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" fame.
So, thank you for sharing your talent with me & the rest of the world. Keep tickling the ivories. Keep recording. And most of all, keep sharing! It is truly appreciated.
