hi rick:
i wish a happy new year full of prosperity for you and your family.

i'm enjoying this new look of ljp.

good luck,
albetan
hey rick, nice to "see" you here.  we all take breaks from our jazz piano lovin' sisters and brothers, me included, heh, but eventually the call of ljp is too strong to bear, or you're going through your old bookmarks and saying,"oh yeah, i forgot about this one."  ;)
If I'm not back in 24 hours, call the president.

always have to check in when i get a chance. are you still busy playing scot?  

i'm 25 now...i think i joined here when i was 15! this place taught me so much!  

is mike still around?  

where do you upload your mp3s these days? would be nice to hear what everyone is up to  

rick
that's pretty cool to be here learning for the last ten years!  i'm hearing more and more stories like this from people i know on the board to random people who facebook me.  one guy recently said he discovered ljp when he was 12, got into jazz, and has graduated from berkely with a jazz piano degree of some kind thanks to ljp.

what are you doing?  playing a lot?  i'm not playing as much, but when i do play it's at the best level i've been playing at since i started out.

i'm trying to consolidate my vids and mp3 tracks on my new https://www.scotranney.com site but the work is going slow.

the media page didn't work :(  

nice pics though, you're looking well dude

yeah well it must be a good feeling knowing you've single handily set up this great resource for people everywhere!  

i checked out jeffs 7 minute long video today. good to see he's still got his great hair.  

i'm doing well thanks. graduated from guildhall in 2008 (!) and been "pro" ever since, whatever that means. been a good few years. released my first album online a few weeks ago on www.muvolution.com but i'll put some stuff on a soundcloud tomorrow if i can as i think that site only lets you hear 30 second samples or something like that.  

i've been checking ethan iverson's blog a lot this last year - have you checked it? it's incredible!
wow, rick!  it seems like just yesterday you were a wee lad:)  glad you're out there gigging!
thanks for pointing out the ethan iverson blog!  fantastic!


thanks for watching!  

for others interested, the video is at trio7com or https://www.trio7.com

kudos on the new album! hopefully you can choose the coolest 30 seconds in each number to demo. hopefully you're not beholden to the random robot's fancy.

and didja know i got a theory book published by hal leonard (world's largest print music publisher)?

wow jeff, incredible! what an achievement! you must be proud. i'm away on a retreat and i dont have the internet but i'll see if my mobile can handle that site! that's really great news  

whacky, what's new? what's your latest jazz fancy?  

i won't be able to make any clips till i'm back home but i've got a sound cloud if you wanted to have a quick listen - www.soundcloud.com/ricksimpsonjazz  

all but two of the tracks were private until a couple of days ago so it'd be nice to see the play counters even out, heh :)  

jeff i'm going to try your link now!
oh and scot, did you see my message about your media page not working? tried to listen over christmas but i couldn't get to the page
i have no idea what primordial means...it must be good! :)
hey rick, i didn't have anything on that page but i put some stuff up (links to stuff, actually.) i definitely have to update that page a bit more, though!

primordial?  it's the soup we came from, right?

groove on, brotha!
thanks whacky!

good luck with the big band. haven't done a big band thing in ages...its a load of fun when you get nice charts.
