Stefano Bollani – Orvieto

As a new addition to this site, I will start posting transcriptions that I have done here. The first one is pianist Stefano Bollani’s solo on his tune Orvieto. It’s from his album Stone in the Water, which was released in 2009 on ECM. Stefano Bollani, piano; Jesper Bodilsen, bass; Morten Lund, drums. Transcription

I will be posting more transcriptions soon!

March Update

Hi everyone!

A (very) belated thank you to everyone who came out to the Dakota on January 21 to hear the Trio. It was a fun event for us, and I hope you enjoyed it! Audio from this event can be downloaded here.

Since then, I’ve had a busy two months. The Dakota Combo was in New York on February 19 and 20 for the Mingus High School Competition. We played three tunes: So Long Eric, Orange Was the Color of Her Dress, and Reincarnation of a Lovebird. We had a great time, and won the Mingus Spirit Award! Thanks to the Manhattan School of Music for their hospitality.

Lastly, my next performance is on Thursday, March 24 at 8:00 pm in Antonello Hall at MacPhail Center for Music. This is part of MacPhail’s Jazz Thursdays series. I am not playing in the entire concert, but I am sitting in with the band on one tune. I hope to see you there!

When I was little, I hated practicing the piano in the basement. It was dark. It was scary. I wouldn’t go there alone.

I’ve recovered. I hope you enjoy this website introducing me and my music.
