Adios


Hang in there…it builds a head of steam with the cello at go and starts to cook at the 3:00 minute mark…What incredible talent!

Benjamin Sainte-Clementine, 27, in a poet, singer, pianist, composer and musician. He performs Adios live at the Burberry Menswear January 2016 show.

The decision is mine
The decision is mine
So let the lesson be mine
Let the lesson be mine
The decision was hard
The decision was hard
Cause the vision is mine
The vision is mine

Thanksgiving


Eric Lewis, 41, who is better known by his stage name ELEW, is an American jazz pianist who has found crossover success playing rock and pop music. He was born in Camden, NJ. He is known for his unconventional and physical playing style, which eschews a piano bench and includes reaching inside the piano lid to pull at the strings directly, as well as the creation that he calls Rockjazz, a genre that “takes the improvisational aspect of jazz and ‘threads it through the eye of the needle of rock.'”

Lewis began his career as a jazz purist, playing as a sideman for jazz luminaries like Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson, Elvin Jones, Jon Hendricks, and Roy Hargrove as well as performing as a member of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. However, he eventually became interested in rock music and embarked on a solo career as a crossover musician, quickly gaining recognition for his instrumental “Rockjazz” piano covers of mainstream rock hits like The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It, Black” and The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside”.

He released his albums of instrumental covers which can be found on iTunes here: ELEW Rockjazz Vol. 1 (2010, including “Sweet Home Alabama”) and ELEW Rockjazz Vol. 2 (2012, including this tune “Thanksgiving“)

Kiss the Rain


Yiruma is the stage name of Lee Ru-ma, a 34-year old internationally-acclaimed pianist and composer from South Korea.  He began playing the piano at the age of five and moved to London when he was eleven, in 1988, to study at The Purcell School of Music. He held dual citizenship, South Korean and British, until 2006, when he gave up his UK citizenship to serve in the South Korean Navy.  ‘Kiss the Rain’ is one of his most popular selections.”  Thank you Dr. Bill Wooten for introducing me to this performer.
