The piano keyboard has 88 keys and somewhere among them are just about any song you have ever heard.
If you have a favorite song you would like to suggest for The Elegant Music Jazz Trio to play, send me an email email@example.com.
New music is an adventure. I look forward to your requests.
Elegant Music Jazz Trio
I have 2 hands and 10 fingers. Adding String Bass and Drums helps me to play an even larger repertoire, including dance music.
The Dinner Dance Party
Planning a party is good for morale:
Getting one’s hair cut…
Wearing those new shoes…
Jacket and tie…
Perhaps a bow tie…
Feeling more our selves we stand up a little straighter…
Getting dressed for dinner and dancing affects an instant transformation; women look beautiful and men suddenly remember their manners.

“Style” Jazz at a Wedding
Getting dressed up and showing some style is all part of planning any event. The juxtaposition of Location, Dress, Music, dynamically contribute as do decor & design. These elements are so much fun to play with when planning an event.

The Rat Pack
Speaking of “style” Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis and the rest of the “Rat Pack” established a style that inspired motion pictures like Oceans 8, Oceans 11, 12 & 13. Music and fashion are important design elements of these movies.
Here is the humorous song “Style” featuring Sinatra, Martin & Bing Crosby from the 1964 motion picture “Robin and the Seven Hoods”.
The Great American Song Book
“The Way you Look Tonight”, “Sway”, “Fly Me To The Moon” were popular contemporary songs (back in the day) that were made famous by performing artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and others. These timeless melodies (Standards) comprise a collection affectionately known as “The Great American Song Book.” In addition to playing selections from “The Great American Song Book” the Elegant Music Jazz Trio also performs Jazz Covers of popular contemporary music.
