Either I post here or in Viva Piano....
I have been asked to play some jazz (piano) at a school prom in a couple months. I have never really attempted jazz apart from ABRSM graded syllabuses (syllibi ?). I am not quite sure the character of jazz since I'm mostly a classical player. Obviously it is different, but I want to know how much jazz playing differs from classical. When I watch recordings, it seems to me that there is strict timing and yet it sometimes sounds lazy.
Bit of: Gershwin: I got rythmn, Novlette in fourths (grade 8 syllabus), some preludes.
And other similar (I hope I am correct) stuff like ragtime
American patrol, and some Joplin.
