From time to time, I post recordings or performances from our Musical Millennial. Today is one of those days. He’s a junior at the University of Texas majoring in Jazz Composition, playing piano. The university records the Jazz Orchestra performances, and I like sharing them with you for your listening pleasure, Dear Readers. (Because I’m a proud mom, I admit it.)
Usually the tunes are the Musical Millennial’s compositions, but this one is a little different. It’s his arrangement of a song that was definitely NOT jazz when it was written and recorded by pop artist Ariana Grande. Say what??? A pop tune?This is NOT our regularly scheduled programming!! It’s all explained in the notes from the concert program.

This is so delicious for the ears! I love jazz, and this fits the bill. Looking forward to savoring the others too. Thank you kindly.
What a nice compliment! I will pass it on. 🙂
Ooo my ears thank you for sharing this piece
He’ll be glad you liked it! There’s more where that came from; he’s doing “Up, Up and Away” at his junior recital (along with a bunch of his own compositions). Thank you for listening.
