A couple of things I did a few weeks ago. Thankfully the music goes on.

My version of Tears Of a Clown.

... and to counterbalance it, an update of the old jazz tune 'When You're Smiling'.

For the time being, it's under the generic name Yorkshire Pianist rather than my own.

I've said it before...record a collection of 2 Tone tunes in your style and release them in some way. It's not expensive to print up even 100 CDs and digitally costs little or nothing. It'd be something a bit unique which is hard to find these days. I really loved your interpretation of Stereotype etc. in the past

Thanks for that, Mangeire. The idea was put on the back burner, partly because I had a bout of illness and had to take extended time out - something we're all doing right now, unfortunately. Wink My original plan had been to book a studio with a good acoustic piano to get that authentic sound but I'm thinking using my digital wouldn't be a bad idea.

An EP might be more feasible than an album's worth. I'll certainly keep it in mind and obviously see how things develop with regard to the lockdown. In the mean time, I should be able to share little samples on Soundcloud and Youtube. Here's another. https://youtu.be/mYpCnD78g4s

New original piece, 'Downtime'. A little reflection on the current standstill.

On reflection, one or two tunes shared online would really be it. It was around 2009 that I made my first attempts. Turned out well but that was a while back. I want to challenge myself a bit more musically now.

'Legend of the Phoenix' - slightly different take on Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'.

('Legend of the phoenix' is a line from the lyrics.)

I will still do the occasional 2-tone related piano piece. Shared a brief one by Madness today on Twitter.

New original music. 'They Don't See the D.U.B', a remix of one of my songs 'They Don't Even See' which I'll most likely re-release next year.

It's beautiful Imani, it's like listening to a gospel song.
The video photos merge elliptically with your sound.

On your SOUNDCLOUD my favourite is "I feel for you"
