Today’s very brief piece of upbeat music brings together melodies from two classic American songs, almost guaranteed to put a smile on your face:
1- The 1922 blues classic ‘Ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do’, written by Grainger and Robbins and popularized by Alberta Hunter, Bessie Smith, Jimmy Witherspoon. Other notable versions: Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke, Willie Nelson, and Hank Williams, Jr.
2- ‘This Land Is Your Land’, written by the great Woody Guthrie in 1940, is one of the United States’ most famous folk songs.
I don’t know how I got the idea to put them together, but here they are!
Dedicated to Bob S and Wendy Lee.
Bosendorfer piano sound – For this recording I’m playing a Yamaha Clavinova – which has the same keyboard action as a traditional acoustic piano, but there are no strings. Pressing a key activates (in this case) a sound which was sampled from a Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand piano. Try listening to it with a good set of headphones! It sounds better than any piano I’ve ever owned!!
