Falling Grace by Steve Swallow

Been practicing and studying Falling Grace these past few days.. Listened to several versions including with Chick Corea and Gary Burton, Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, John Scofield.. It’s the jazz tune I didn’t know until Pat mentioned it his interview with Rick Beato.. I’m playing it in 12 keys on the piano and getting it together on the violin. Today I dusted off my microphones and computer and worked on this video. Hope you like it.

Pat Metheny interview

Long time fan of Pat. He shares some true wisdom in this interview. I even jotted down a few things I heard for inspiration. Thought you may enjoy. The video is long but worth it. Some long lasting ideas:

  1. Do what you know is good
  2. Work on fundamentals all the time
  3. Be compulsively productive
  4. Play tunes in different keys
  5. Use dynamic variety in melody

funniest moment – We all suck compared to Bach!

If you follow me, you know all about Liza. She’s doing something I’ve never heard before with Brazilian music. She plays melodies, she accompanies, she plays solo, she improvises and sings bossa nova while playing the harp. Yeah..So here’s your chance to get out and hear some great music and have a nice meal. Thanks for tuning in. See you there. P.S. It’s early – 6:00 – 9pm.
