Don’t Explain – Solo Jazz Piano Video Performance

billie holiday don't explainHey everybody!

I wanted to share a quick video performance I just made of the great jazz standard ‘Don’t Explain’.

This tune was written and made famous by the late great Billie Holiday.

In my opinion she is an extremely underrated songwriter and should absolutely be in the same conversation with other great jazz writers.

I’ve always loved Billie’s singing and music so much and I wanted to pay tribute to her through this recording. 🙂

In a few days I’ll add a whole piano lesson to this site on how to play many of the reharmonization techniques I used in this recording.

Be sure to keep checking the site. (If you’re a subscriber to this site already you’ll receive a private email of the lesson.)

If you’re not a subscriber already you can subscribe on the top left of this site for free.

Update: The lesson has been released. Here is the lesson where I show you some of the reharmonization techniques.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy the performance 🙂

If you liked this performance please leave a comment below or share it on Facebook or Twitter. 🙂
