Here is my take on the beautiful Erroll Garner standard for this summer Monday morning.
Aimee, Mike Scott (guitar), Roger Shew (bass), and Sean Fitzpatrick (drums) play Aimee's arrangement of "Light My Fire" at The Hip Kitty. February 5, 2015
At the beginning of the summer, my son Charlie and I were listening to the band, Bread, and the song Aubrey came on. I had heard it before but not for a long time. Charlie immediately fell in love with it. We decided to do something about our love for this song, so I called up my friend Jason Neubauer and asked him if he would help.
He sent a beautiful guitar part, I made an arrangement with vocal harmonies and Charlie sang lead.
Everything was recorded at my home (except the guitar) and between Jason and I, we mixed and mastered the project. This is the result.
It feels so good to have made something with Charlie and I hope you all enjoy it!
A couple of months ago, my student, Matthew Goldberg showed me a piano piece he had written, called "For A Little While." He's on the east coast and I teach him via Skype. Our lessons consist of him showing me a pdf of some composition he is working on, and me telling him what's good about it, and what could be better.
Jake Reichbart is an amazing guitarist! He plays mainly fingerstyle guitar and he can play any song in a sophisticated guitar arrangement! He has a great Youtube channel where he publish a new song each week.
This is my cover of Labrinth's "Jealous." I've loved this song for years and always had reharmonization ideas floating around my brain. Finally decided to sit down at the Rhodes and make something. I hope you like it.
I hope you enjoy my arrangement of one of my very favorite Beach Boys songs. You might remember Grant from the video I did about Berklee. He’s a great talent!
