Happy Thanksgiving everyone from the United States! Hope you are staying safe and enjoying yourselves this season. We do have a bit of a covid spike going on, so please keep your distance even if it’s hard and eat some good turkey!
Today, I will be sharing some songs from a book of music that I forgot I had. It’s called “the DEFINITIVE jazz COLLECTION” and it just has a bunch of popular jazz songs from back in the two. So here is two Jazz songs.
This jazz song was one of our pep band songs in college marching/pep band and this is definitely not a pep band arrangement. Hope you enjoy it.

I Loves You Porgy
I don’t have any big reasoning behind recording this one. It just looked fun and it played pretty fun too.

This was a bit of a rush, but it was fun. Also, I decided what the main goal of this blog was. Making myself more comfortable when playing by myself. You can probably tell that I had some nerves from some of the shaking in these recordings. I don’t have as much confidence as I could have, so I think this is a good way to do that in this COVID-19 environment we are in.
I plan on recording some Christmas music, Lutheran and standard, for next month. Keep an eye out!
