Daily Dosage: Euro Edition #3 – Kev Choice “Ravel-ation” (Free Download)

18 Oct

Loving the vibe in France.  Went into a music store this morning and found this piece of music called “Menuet sur le nom d’Haydn,” one of the definitive solo recordings from one of my favorite classical composers, Maurice Ravel (March 7, 1875 – December 28, 1937).

The chords and melody are beautiful, and I’ve attempted to play it before.  I decided for my first “instrumental” Daily Dosage,  that I’d take this piece and make my own version of it.

Funny, as I was buying the sheet music, the clerk behind the counter said in a strong French accent, “you sure you want this, it’s not funky,” implying that he thought I didn’t realize I was getting a classical piece.  He ain’t knowin’!  I had to sit down at the piano and show em something real quick.  Crazy……Hope you enjoy.
