Since this is a blog called "Where Pianos Roam", I thought it would be appropriate to have an image of pianos for the first ever Weekly Pic Pick!!!
The other day, I was rehearsing with my drummer Benjamin Stix, guitarist Tony Youngblood, and horn player Jamison Sevitts. We were jamming and brainstorming arrangement ideas for one of the songs for the album.
I think I had the best seat in the house. It was on a cozy little piano bench sandwiched between a gorgeous upright piano and my faithful (and very portable) stage keyboard. I felt like a little Asian buffer between the old world of the past and a funky, newer dimension. Sigh . . .
We had a fun session, and I could have sat there all day playing my heart out.
I think I will always favor an acoustic piano over an electric one. You just can't fabricate the depth, authenticity, and richness of a real piano. Nonetheless, the portability and mixture of different sounds that an electric keyboard/synthesizer can give are worth their weight in awesomeness!!
Another lovely Weekly Pic Pick arrives next week!!!
