32,000 visits… 50s stuff still popular…

21 Apr

The old jazz exercise videos continue to get more exposure and visitations.  The 2-5-1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg-mDGAigxE ) is over 21, 800 and the 7-9-11-13 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve5T1hxP_l4) is over 10,200.  I learned these exercises in 1954 and 55.  By the summer of ’55 I was playing for money, so they are very practical exercises to learn if you have some intention of working in the music business as a piano player.

I’ll be selling downloadable pdf’s of these exercises (and others) and also hard copies. Also I’ll be selling mp3’s of tracks from my two albums (from 1961 and 1963).  They will be sold off a new site that is still in the planning stage. I have the home page done (first draft) — here it is below:

Here ya go — some really good gospel playing — this guy is good. I’m going to copy some of this voicings.  This is one of my major dreams — to become a REALLY good gospel player. When I go on that trip next year, I’ll be spending a lot of time at churches in the south, especially New Orleans.  I have the blues down pretty well, but I don’t know the traditional gospel moves. But, once I have those, plus what I already know (blues and jazz), I should come up with a pretty good gospel style… it’s fun music.

All for now — need to put some time into a graphics project…

    I have to hand it to you, Brez you are one busy guy with “all your irons in the fire.”

    Being the active person that you are should give you a long and fruit full life.

    I hope that your efforts and hard work will one day give you the satisfaction and success that you so richly deserve.

    Take care and may yourself and your extended family be well.

    Chuck

      Hi Chuck – thank you for your feedback and interest in what I’m doing with these various projects. Right now I have three significant “projects” in the works: the piano teaching deal; the Route 66 graphics effort and the “YourPerfectPlan.org” project (a one-on-one tool to present the Christian gospel – marketing to churches, missions and schools).

      I expect to have all three done by this time next year and then go on that six-month USA trip to promote all three. Actually, I’ll finish the piano teaching project first because that one has the potential to bring some money in very soon – by sometime this summer.

      In addition to these activities, I have that part-time job at Home Depot, family responsibilities, upkeep of the house, exercise and a few other things (woodworking, writing, and more) … yes, life for me is pretty much non-stop motion. But, I like it that way — I can honestly say that I’ve never been bored… there’s just too much to do and I’m having fun doing it.

      At any rate, I appreciate your interest and I’m happy that we are still in contact after all these years — we went to grammar school together…that was 64 years ago. We go WAY back…!
