And here's Hiromi's jazzed up version. At the start she even makes her piano sound like a harpsichord, which was of course a key instrument of the baroque period. Further on she really starts to kick butt and gets ultra-virtuosic. Amazing stuff, although I expect that most of you will probably not like it.
One of the most interesting things about her version is the range of musical genres she gives a nod to during the performance. I think there was even a bit of traditional French folk-style in there towards the end. Be interesting to know how much of that was truly improv (my assumption is most of it, a least to a degree).
Loved the foot stamp partway through too.
r.e. Miles Davis, what's your favourite record?
