Usually it is only at Christmas time that I might be able to find a public domain song that I would post to the forum. I am working on a public domain song for Christmas now. But I discovered that one that I did earlier in the year is actually public domain. The song is See See Rider by Ma Rainey, written in 1924. I attempted to arrange it in the style of Tommy Flanagan.

531 Bass Acoustic Pop Sw 65 - Byron House
RD JazzBrushes - Craig Scott
576 Guitar Electric Solo Blues EV 85 - by Jack Pearson

See See Rider

Hi Ken,

That was an incredibly enjoyable experience. I could listen to your piano playing all day. It sings with soul. To my mind, jazz doesn't get any classier than what I've just listened to. Everything about this presentation sparkles. I wouldn't change a thing.

Thank you for letting me listen to some of your music. The pleasure was mine!

All the best,
Noel

Hey Ken,

Wow!! Da blooze played by a real jazz pianist, with all the modern voicings, slick left-hand transitions, beautifully shaped ideas, ... such a pleasure to listen to.

Please! More!!

Ken,

That was TRULY enjoyable. I listened several times (although I skipped the first 52 seconds after the first). Beautiful playing.
So expressive!

So very cool! It made me want to write a Tom Waits song!

MORE!

Hi, Ken !

Very enjoyable jazz !
I can envision a smokefilled
night club from way back then,
with a lonely couple involved
in a blueish soul dance....
and the white clad guys playing
emotionally in the background...
the background noice is missing, though !!
This is romantic music for all what it´s worth !!
Thank you, Ken for this lovely played piece !!:))

Cheers
Dani

Such a sweet subdued blues. Great piano playing and a perfect accompaniment.

My only critique is I would have liked a more jazzy lead guitar like Jim Hall or Wes Montgomery (but they aren't available). The timbre of that guitar didn't fit with the rest of the mix, at least for me it didn't.

The Gospel sounding chords near the end... sweet.

This is so good, I love your piano playing. Thanks for posting.

Frank, I hear you. I "auditioned" numerous guitar players (including myself) for the solo. I am more of a player in that Jim Hall style when I pull out the guitar. But I wanted that dig-in blues sound with a lot of sustain and bends yet not a lot of notes. I didn't want any distortion though, so I agree that the bit of distortion in there doesn't really sit well with the rest of the mix. It was the best one that I could find.

Maybe the next set of realtracks has my perfect soloist for this song!

Hi Ken...

We're big lovers of Jazz and you gave us one more reason to enjoy the genre with this superb tune! We do agree that the guitar is just a bit conflicting with the mellowness (is that a word?) of the piano. You work on the ivories is superb! What a great listen! Best to you ...

Alan & Di
