cool blues style
The work on the Keys is very convincing.
Absolutely fine piano solo ..... with matching pictures, this is a true pleasure.

What a cool way to present those vintage pix and also to highlight the song. The song is great. The pix are great. I hope you put this in the video section too. The Reader's Digest condensed version of American history
I do not know your political leanings (at the moment, there is not much to lean against, if you get my drift) but on the Rachel Maddow Show last night, I learned that it is the 50th anniversary of the death of 3 kids who took it upon themselves to go to the South in order to assist blacks in getting registered to vote, so they could make a difference in the political arena. Of couse the 3 kids were part of a much larger group. I and many others consider them heros but the vandalism that was done to the young man, Chaney's (first name is enough to turn the stomachs of most descent folks. That is my take on the story (and I'm stickin' sith it!) Chaney is, of course no relation to the " #@&*%" who was VP. Spelled differently anyway.
I'm sure you know more about that story than I do.
Loved what you just presented and I hope others do as well!!!
Woooow, I love the video and these wonderful old photos, accompanied by your fantastic piano play.

Bravo Griff, ottimo brano blues.
Mi sono informato su questa canzone e ho scoperto che è molto vecchia

video with very old photos, put together with care and refinement.
musically, what can I say, great interpretation, that if there was still a need proves your great musical training.
Today I start to send you some tracks
Well about your playing... i don't think that i have any more adjectives to define your amazing sound... trully, i have no words, i could listen your playing for hours specially in these style of music, but also in some others you do.
It's cool, is a sound that has life in it, is not very common to hear that soul, that, life in music.... when it happens is magical, and you my friend have that magic! A great, great respect for that.
About Harlem....well i have been there, i rent an apartment there and i stood there, is so nice, and to see those photos from the great years of Jazz and Swing, To see the magical places like Cotton Club or the Appolo, in your amazing collection of photos, just let a guy dreaming with those places and imagining how cool it sould have been those times....
Hang on - how did this gem from yu slip thorugh under my radar? Beautifully done Griff. Wonderful playing of a great song. Absolutely no need for any clever mixing or effects. Your sheer talent and the years of hard work do a job no amount of technological tinkering could match. Sublime.
Ok...this is up my alley. Love it...LOve it...LOVE IT! This brings to mind Ray Charles and "Georgia On My Mind."
I embrace everything about this piece, the outstanding piano performance, the video, the feeling that just rises up from it. Griff, what a gift and talent you have been blessed with. I am honored to be able to listen to your music and be blessed by it. You are tremendous! In my favs this goes.
