This podcast is where I record myself practicing jazz piano, and post the recordings on the net.
Geoff's Christmas Piano Podcast 2011
Geoff Peters tinkles the Steinway ivories on Christmas Day 2011, playing "The Christmas Song".
New Endings Old Beginnings (Geoff Original)
New Endings Old Beginnings is a tune I wrote while jamming with the amazing drummer Colin Defreitas. I perform it here, for its world recording premiere, as a solo piano rendition recorded on a late 1950's Steinway. It has an extended improvised intro and then a main melody that starts about half way through. I'm putting in a few Chick Corea influenced lines which I really like.
Tell Me A Bedtime Story (Hancock)
I do a short performance of the Herbie Hancock tune "Tell Me A Bedtime Story" on the piano.
O Christmas Tree Practice (With Jazz Upper Structures) - *Quality fixed*
In this practice, I work on starting to learn the Upper Structure chords as described in Chapter 14 of the Jazz Piano Book by Mark Levine, on the tune "O Christmas Tree".
Gregory is Here (Horace Silver) and Close Your Eyes Practice
In this practice, I work on reading the tune "Gregory is Here" by Horace Silver, from the Real Book chart. I then work on learning Close Your Eyes in a kind of calypso style.
More Have You Met Miss Jones
In this practice, I work more on learning to play the tune "Have You Met Miss Jones" in all keys, without the book.
