Aiko’s Dance – Piano Recording and Sheet Music New Sheet Music

This is a piece I wrote a while back that never was recorded – just played live a lot with various instrumentation. My favorite was when Aiko Shimada and I would do this one as a duet. She would sing the melody and it was amazing. If you haven’t heard her music, go listen to her records today!

Here’s a new solo-piano recording of the piece:

Throwback Thursday – Sono Come Tu Mi Vuoi by The Jongleurs When in Rome...

Throwback circa 2000. I sing a country version of an Italian classic (in Italian) arranged by Matt Glassmeyer. Trombone solo was provided in essence by Randy Kapralick (not pictured for some reason that is not a good one I’m sure).

Listen to our version here:

An Italian record label reached out to The Jongleurs and asked us to do a cover on their Mina tribute album. They said we should do whatever we wanted, as long as we sang in Italian.

So this was my chance to document it on a recording in a brand new language.

Horn Arrangements: Matt Glassmeyer
