 I Remember You is from the Paramount Picture The Fleet's In. The song was written by Johnny Mercer in 1942, along with the music by Victor Schertzinger. Recorded by Jimmy Dorsey in 1942 and the Slim Whitman sings it like a classic country song.

It's played in the Key of G with 4/4 time signature. Moderately, not too fast. Here it is on YouTube.

 Monday Music Quote: Vladimir Horowitz


The great pianist Vladimir Horowitz once said:

"Perfection itself is imperfection."

"Played percussively, the piano is a bore. If I go to a concert and someone plays like that I have two choices: go home or go to sleep. The goal is to make the piano sing, sing, sing."

Changing Your Piano Speed 

 

Tempo is the speed of any piece of music. Just like driving a car and seeing the 45 M.P.H. speed sign, it is the same for Tempo words in music.

At the very top left hand corner, on the beginning page of your sheet music, you will often see a word that tells you how fast or how slow to play a particular song. Sometimes you will be asked to slow down your speed of playing in a particular passage.

Usually you will find that these tempo words are written in Italian. Here are some of the more common Italian words you will discover in music. It does help to memorize most of these words. Having flash cards to quiz yourself is a very good idea.
 
Slow Tempo Marks:

Adagio (play with ease)
Largo (very slow and broad)
Lento (very slow)
Grave (heavy and solemn)

Medium Tempo Marks:

Andante (a moderate, graceful, walking tempo)
Andantino (a little slower than andante)
Moderato (a moderate tempo)
Molto (very)
Larghetto (somewhat slow)

Fast Tempo Marks:

Allegretto (lively and quick but a little slower than Allegro))
Allegro (cheerful, fast and quick)
Vivace (lively and brisk)
Presto (very fast)
Prestissimo (very, very fast)

Right in the middle of a piece, you will see that the composer has decided he wants you to slow down. Look for a new tempo marking at the very beginning of a new section. Here's what to look for.

Gradually Getting Faster:

Accelerando (becoming gradually faster and abbreviated accel.)
Stringendo (quickening)

Gradually Getting Slower:

Ritardando (becoming gradually slower and abbreviated rit.)
Ritenuto (held back)
Rallentando (becoming gradually slower)
Rattenuto (holding back and slowing down)

When you slow down at the end of a phrase of music or a particular section of a composition, you will notice at the start of the next section a new word, a tempo. This means to go back to the original tempo. It is like slowing down while driving a car because you see a sign that says, "Speed Reduced Ahead.", and then going back up to the regular speed limit once again.

Now your piano practice sounds playful and energetic while observing accelerando. Sometimes your moderato walking tempo sounds smooth dance-like. Time completely changes within a song all because you changed speed when playing the piano. The pace of a piece of music becomes alive because you have observed tempo marks with expression. Well done.

Diana Krall: Let's Face The Music And Dance


Let's Face The Music And Dance Music Score

 Irving Berling wrote a popular song in 1935 from the Motion Picture Follow The Fleet, called Let's Face The Music And Dance. It's played in the Key of C with dreamy altered chords in 4/4 tempo. Here's the sheet music chords for the piano from The Best of Diana Krall. Keep in mind that what you're playing is not necessarily Diana Krall's arrangement.

 F6                 Fm6           C/E  Ebm6  Dm7  G7#5
Let's face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
 G7              Ab7        D7/A  D7 Dm7/G G7      F/G  G7         C  Cmaj9  C9
Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance
 F6                 Fm6          C/E  Cdim/Eb  Dm7  C
Let's face the music and dance

 Ab    Eb9              Ab                 Eb9              Ab                        G7  F/A  Bbm  G7/B
Soon we'll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then
 Cm                                         Cm6  Cm(maj7)  Cm7
There may be teardrops to shed
 Cm                                             Dm7b5 G7 C             Cmaj9  C9
So while there's moonlight and music and love and romance
 F6                  Fm6   C/E  D7   D7/A  Ab7b5
Let's face the music and dance, dance.
  C/G  Am7/G   Dm7  Dm7/G C6   G7#5(b9)  C6

The song, I get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes) was written in 1938. I love the moderate tempo Diana Krall plays in the Key of Bb. I've listed the chords below along with a chord breakdown. Listen to her voice and see her perform in Paris on YouTube.

I've been collecting Diana Krall music and songbooks for quite some time now. She is an amazing, gifted musician. Do you have a favorite song of hers?

    F7              Cm7       Ebm6    Bb       Edim7    Cm7 F7
The thrill of being sheltered in your arms, of course I do. 

      Cm7            Ebm/F       Bb  Gm7 Cm7 F7
But I get along without you very well.


Bb6                  Cm7  F7/C  Cm7/F F7 Bb      Edim7    Cm7 
I've for - got - ten you, just like I should, of course I have;

 F7       Cm7   F7/C F7                Cm7   F7/C     Cm7
Except to hear your name, or someone's laugh that is the same.

     F7                             Bb Eb/Bb Bb
But I've forgotten you just like I should.


    Bb7 Eb6     Ebm    Bb
What a guy!    What a fool am I 

    Cm                Ebm/F       F7       Bb Bbmaj7 Bb7 
To think my breaking heart could kid the moon.

          Eb6                D7         Gm
What's in store?   Should I 'phone once more?

          C7                     C7/F F
No, it's best that I stick to my tune.


Bb6             Cm7 F7/C Cm7/F F Bb    Edim7    Cm7 
I get along without you very well, of course I do;

F7        Cm7  F7/C F7                  Cm7 F7/C    Cm7            
Except perhaps in spring...but I should never think of spring,

    F7                CM7      Ebm6     Bb  Eb/Bb  Bb
For that would surely break my heart in two.

C                       G/A  Am7 Fmaj7  C/F  G7        Fm7/C  C
What would you say if I told you I've always wanted to hold you
C                        G/A   Am7  Fmaj7    C/F G7            Dm7  G7
I don't know what we're afraid of; Nothing would change if we made love


[Chorus]
            C  C/E   F               C  C/E  G/F F          C            Bb   Am7  Dm

         G11        G          Fm/C C   G/A Am/F Dm/F   G        F   Ddim/C
We don't have to be one or the oth--er, No, we could be both to each other

Yes, it's a chance that we're taking, and somebody's heart may be breaking
C                         G/A Am7      Fmaj7   C/F  G7         Dm7   G7
But we can stop what's inside us, our love for each other will guide us


[Chorus]

We don't have to be one or the oth--er

You Call It Madness (But I Call it Love)

 

This song was written in the 30s by Con Conrad, Gladys Dubois, Russ Columbo and Paul Gregory. It's played in the Key of G with 4/4 time signature. From the album, All For You (1996).

            C              Cm 
I can't forget the night I met you, 
 D7     G       B7      E7
That's all I'm thinking of; 
    Am       Bdim       D7
And now you  call   it madness, 
     G     C6  G
But I call it love. 
 
 
            C             Cm
You made a promise to be faithful 
D7  G       B7    E7
By all the stars above; 
Am           Bdim     D7 
And now you  call it  madness, 
  G          C6  G  C6  G+  D7   
I still call it love. 
 
Bridge: 
 
 Fm6         G7      Fm6            G7
My heart is beating, it keeps on repeating 
C       E7       Am
For you constantly. 
Dm6             E7      DM6          E7
You're all I'm needing, and so I'm pleading, 
C            Cm      D7
"Please come back to me!" 

           C                 Cm
You made a plaything out of romance! 
D7   G       B7      E7
What do you know of love? 
Am               Bdim     D7
That's why  you  call it madness, 
    G      C6  G
But I call it love.

I just wanted to give a shout out to Elly Brown for contacting PianoDiana regarding their new infographic (JAZZ BENEFITS). I found it to be a great resource and very informative. It's true that music, especially Jazz,  does effect the brain. Presently I am teaching an adult student who received a brain injury from a golf ball. She is making remarkable progress and is so inspiring. Children with autism are responding to rhythm with boom whackers and simple piano patterns.

 I am passionate about this genre of music and if you missed some former posts on the subject of jazz piano, you might want to visit http://ladydpiano.com Music does stimulate the brain and provides better overall health to the individual!
