hello,
my name's phil and i've just stepped into the world of piano. been a guitar player for five years (and still am) but have always wanted to learn piano too, after being inspired by the movie 'the fabulous baker boys'. what i really want to learn is a few nice slow, but popular, jazz standards, or something along the 'swing' line such as 'one for my baby', so i can sit in front of a piano in a bar or club and be able to play a tune or two.
obviously i've a long way to go, but i'm determined and have the time to practice.
if anyone could recommend some good compliation cd's including some music in the style i've mentioned by popular artists, i'd appreciate it very much.
thanks for listening - best wishes.
