I Loves You Porgy – Section A (Part 1/2) | Jazz Piano Tutorial (2020)

Tutorial
By request. Part 2 coming soon. This video is how I went about learning the piece, including some more fancy chords and stylistic performance ideas. First, I got the piece on my internal jukebox by listenig to many versions (Ella: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dv6okU-fLDs / Billie Holiday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpxfZKeqw48 / Oscar Peterson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qka-UuXC79Q / Bill Evans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Yr4oYyDHn0) – please note how they all vary quite a lot in terms of exact melody and chords used.

I then saw the chords on http://www.jazzstudies.us/ and dissected them. Easiest was: 1, (F4) 251 (floating 251 to the 4th), 251 to root. 3. 6.. 2 (major third), 2 (minor third), 5 1. Very easy to internalise over a couple of minutes.

I then went to the piano, without needing the score started to mess around with the melody (read: find it) and whack it together with the chords. Then it’s a case of personalisation.
