Weather Report Music
How would you like to play Joe’s ‘A Remark You Made’ on piano?
Joe’s great tune Weather Report’s ‘Heavy Weather’ album. There are lots of versions – even vocal versions (Kurt Elling’s ‘Time To say GoodBye’ and Al Jarreau’s “Something That You Said’) and many piano trio versions.
Here’s a simple performance with the sheet music. Take a listen or go ahead and learn how to play it yourself.
Doug McKenzie played it here on solo piano and played it freely. Doug noted, “Because the melody is so beautiful, I have not done much other than add some minor embellishments. I have also modified the song a little by leaving out one of the sections in the middle.
It was improvised from a lead sheet (it is in several of the ‘Real Books’). For those who are good readers, it might be suitable as a piano solo – I have often been asked for solo piano material.”
