there’s playing piano, which is difficult
there’s ragtime piano, which involves difficult techniques and at its best involves lots of improvisations on a theme
then there’s stride piano, which involves no sheet music and is fully improvised along a basic melody and chord progression
then there’s stride piano duet, which involves no sheet music and is fully improvised along a basic melody and progression AND YOU CAN’T SEE YOUR DUET PARTNER’S BODY LANGUAGE
basically this is magic
oh my god
so is it’s like “lets play and hope for the best”?
THIS IS STRESSING ME OUT
I HAVE SERIOUS STRIDE PIANO FEELS. It’s sooooo goood. Anyone who liked this even vaguely should go check out Art Tatum.
The original edit of The Wizard of Oz included a reprise of Over the Rainbow, sung by Dorothy while she’s trapped in the witch’s castle. It was later cut when it was deemed too intense, as Garland couldn’t make it through the song without breaking down. Though the footage has been lost, the audio remains.
This is one of the most horrible things I have heard, could barely listen to it all.
This is beautiful in a haunting way that is. They should have kept it in, it would have given the film the intensity it needed during that scene. Whilst I do adore the film it was missing that element for me. Plus you can hear the emotion magnificently in Judy’s voice here, just imagine what her body language would have been doing; it would have be spectacular to see.
Turns out, you can’t be newly married and not feel well without people thinking you’re pregnant.
