Most excited about listening to or learning? I know that we've heard some of the full pieces - Diversity and Q, for instance - but there are several which we've only heard parts of. Pianists, which piece are you most excited about playing? I'd have to say Q, Reflections, and Salsa Americana are on my top list to learn. Q, because I've never really played much jazz, so it'll be a good challenge, and it's a really awesome piece. Reflections sounds hard, but that's what I've said about all of the other pieces by Emily that I've learned. Salsa Americana sounds like it'll be just plain fun to play. I'm excited about Tutti Cuore, but mostly because I'm curious to see how close I got it by ear to the real version. ;D
I'm actually super psyched about learning Q. I haven't been motivated to learn anything, especially anything classical even though there's a ton of stuff I want to learn (I know; shame on me), so I've been getting pretty bored without a challenge. I've never played any jazz (beyond Take Five and Emily's Jazz Angles) and Q sounds pretty complicated. I dunno; I've never seen sheet music. But considering I'm a jazz newbie, Q should be a good challenge.
I actually HATED playing long-short rhythms when I was little; I thought they sounded ridiculous.

Levi: The Beatles and especially the Rolling Stones were influenced by Chuck Berry. Keith Richards style is basically Chuck Berry guitar riffs.[br]https://youtu.be/l2sTmWr7ISY "Oh Carol",the Rolling Stones live, From the album 'GET YER YA-YA'S OUT!'

eulenspiegel: It does not work with my ipad. So perhaps someone can tell me afterwards. It seems that everything Mr Rudetzky streams, broadcasts is only for the elite. That cannot be true.

mastersgttom: Sorry for those who live across the Atlantic that weren't able to get the live stream. Emily played a medley of songs I wasn't completely familiar with except the Bumble Boogie which ended the medley. She was great as usual. Nice ovation.
