Awesome performance Scott.
We have plans to incorporate that gospel/funk/neo-soul style into PianoGroove. I saw you mentioned your aspirations to learn and master Hammond and so I’m sure this kind of content will be of interest to you.
I was chatting with @James a while ago about our longer term vision which is create an online school encompassing all styles of improvised music.
Traditionally, we started off just as a jazz piano school, but I feel there is so much more for us to offer, and the jazz theory and foundations that we cover is the basis to then explore these other styles.
I’m currently working on our next new teacher… I won’t announce anything until it’s confirmed but I have a feeling it will be ‘right up your street’ in light of the things you’re sharing here.
Yes I love seeing musicians ‘musically-conversing’ with other like this.
Jovino and the vibes player in his quinteto - Ben Thomas - did a lot of this when I watched them perform. It created a wonderfully engaging and playful dynamic between Ben on the vibraphone and Jovino on the piano.
You will be in for a real treat watching them live.
