Hi All! I could do with some of your collective wisdom
I've been asked to play some background piano music at an event where people will be chatting over the music and milling around. It's an informal event with a relaxed dress code.
I just need to some help with what to play! They're looking for blues/jazz but couldn't be more specific, I'm assuming some form of cocktail bar piano style. My background is in classical, I am at ABRSM diploma level.
I am looking for some recommendations of jazz standards including where I can get some pdfs etc of them which are not completely reliant on improvisation!
So far I have
Strange Meadow Lark - Dave Brubeck
The Man I Love - Gershwin
Don't know why - Jesse Harris
I would welcome any recommendations! Also whether anyone has any experience with this style and manner of performance, do you have any tips? This is all new to me!
