here’s my rendition of Bill Evans’ minor blues Interplay
it’s not perfect, but it was fun to play 🙂
I’m new in Melodica Town, any advice, comment and critics are welcomed!

I love Bill Evans although I don’t know Interplay. Some nice finger work there. I haven’t tried to blow full chords on a melodica, the way I would on a piano. It must take breath control to make sure everything comes out evenly. Were you reading a transcript of Interplay or improvising and phrasing in Bill’s style? Well done!

Hi Joanna, thanks!
I’m not an expert but I find that a good tongue articulation helps in general and in particular with chords. I wasn’t reading (just the theme), the solo part is improvised. I’m not sure it was in Bill’s style, but it’s definitely a compliment! 🙂
