This JHM is a little different than any of the other ones I have posted in the past, and it’s also very special for me. I was going through my videos on my computer and found this. This is the first piece I have ever commissioned in my life, for my Master’s graduation recital. That means that this piece was composed and dedicated to me, for that occasion. The composer is a dear friend of mine, @sayo_composer, who was also like my older sister during our time at Juilliard. She’s in demand and super busy, so I was so thankful she made the time to write this piece for me. She knew that I liked pop and jazz so this piece was born which brings together those sounds! The funny story is that since she’s so busy, she was not able to send us the completed score until 5 days before the recital haha which meant that Chi-Wei (pianist) and I had to learn a piece we had never heard or seen before in 5 days for a formal performance haha. I don’t think I’ve ever learned a new piece that fast and worked that hard lol but it was worth it. Chi-Wei is also a good friend of mine, and we were in the same class at school. He’s a versatile pianist with experience in improvisation, so he was a great pick for capturing this jazzy vibe. I hope you enjoy our performance :) The full version will be up on my YouTube channel, so be sure not to miss it!
