  1. Another nice jazz clip. I'm not really a hip-hop fan, so I've never heard Rising Up before. Jeffrey's arrangement is nice though. In one of Jeffrey's riffs, he brings in a version of I've Got Rhythm in a minor key. Exceptional talent!

  2. Thanks, Bill. I didn't know the song, either until I looked it up. I like Jeff's version better. �� The quote from Gershwin was a little joke with the piano player. They do enjoy playing together.
