It was Original Songs week on Jam Of The Week (week 244!), which gave me an opportunity to revisit “As Water Covers The Sea,” an instrumental piece I wrote a couple of years ago.

It’s no surprise, then, that I was attracted to Peter Martin’s 2 Minute Jazz Piano series on YouTube. Perfect length for a short tip to work on in a limited (or longer) piano session. For example, here’s a quick refresher on broken 3rd scales, which I should have remembered last week when I had to play a very fast “Cherokee”:
