markku's SoundClick blog - 14th Anniversary
It's hard to believe that here it is my 14th anniversary being on SoundClick. In all these years I've played with several bands and on various instruments: piano, bass, flute, sax, violin and guitar. Most of my music has been in jazz but every so often the unexpected style popped up like heavy metal, flamenco or what ever. Why not, after-all I am a formally trained and educated musician with a degree or two.

I recently had gone through some of my archives and thought that it might be fun to post some of my earlier year music with me playing the various instruments. I even found some stuff I did from the early 90's which I posted here on SClick when I first got on the site. I took the liberty of cleaning up some of the sounds using the wonders of our digital era. Much of it was recorded on high speed tape in a studio and didn't have too much to clean up.

If things work out, I hope to add 1 tune a week. I have quite a few which I don't know if they can be restored but we will see.

So...when I first got here on the site my main instrument was piano and other keys. I had received my degree with it being my major and flute being my minor. The other instruments except for guitar I learned to play in music college. Guitar I started playing when I was about 17. I played guitar for several years also professionally and ended up setting it aside until I picked it up again in my 50's. With all I was doing with keys and other instruments, I just had no time for the guitar.

So without further ado I'd like to introduce a jazz swing tune I did on piano back in 1995 which was posted sometime in 2003 or 2004. It's called "What's the Point in Staying". It can be found on my Soundclick page. Hope you enjoy it!
