I asked one of my dear pupils which part of this Gene Harris version of Blue Bossa he would like to learn – and he chose this incredible chordal run you will find 1m57s in from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p71daII9_ds. I transcribed the right hand by ear and added a deepening counter-movement to spread my hands out across the whole keyboard. I have been practising this every day for ages. It’s just about ready to show off! Message me if you would like the transcription!

Some Day My Prince Will Come is one of my favourites. I love the chord sequence and that beautiful flowing soloing by Wynton Kelly. I have played around with different time signatures. 11/8 (to tease our dear drummer) – but it wasn’t really suitable. 5/4 sounds pretty good!
