When I first listened to Peri's Scope, I loved it right away!
It was my assignment for transcription back to 2005 in McGill University and my dream was to improvise it as well as I can!
Bill's Evans version is absolutely brilliant and has given me such a big impact for the skills of improvisation. His incredible ability of integrating all the melodic ideas and lines in an "easy digest" way is what makes me so obsessed!!
Improvisation is not necessarily to be complicated or showing off the technics all the time. It can just be simple as the melody development in some natural sequences as if telling a lovely story 🙂
Well, now, I am trying my best to keep the lovely theme going on 😉

一起聽聽收錄在王若琳創作專輯 “博尼的大冒險” 裡歌曲 “The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy"
In order to write music as Baroque Period, I have reviewed some technics of Bach Invention and Sinfonia.
For me, Bach's music is easy to digest. It is pure and clean because there is no tangled desire.
Despite the way all the melodies go is complicated, they actually response to each other seamlessly.
No matter musical sparks come from vertical or horizontal directions, or no matter it is a short appeared phrase or overlapping long phrases, the feeling is always delightful! This is the charm of Baroque Music. Really happy and grateful having the chance to arrange songs in Baroque Style and get it recorded in the album, The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy. Let's listen to the arrangement of "The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy" !

Sometime Ago is a warm/lovely/relaxing Jazz Waltz.
We all know that Jazz is a very intellectual music. However, sometimes we just want to hear something light, but of course, always with nice melody rich harmony! We are simply looking for something easy to resonate with our hearts 🙂 right?
Invitation is one of my favorite Jazz Standard. I find it's pretty ...sexy!
I have played it many many times, and also recorded it in my debut Jazz album "Jazz Without Time Zones". However, I never got tired of playing it. There is always something amazing coming out!Like this time, all the sudden, I improvised by my left hand 🙂
