These are seven pieces for piano I wrote during a week of lockdown in early July 2020, full of blue notes and jazz chords. Each one has a different feel, from mellow or wistful to fast & snappy. The sheet music is included so you can play them too - they're probably around grade 3-5 level.
They're an experiment, each day I wrote a tune that folk might like to play :)
Coming soon: remixes & re-arrangements of the 7 tunes - watch this space . . .
