After quite a long break with my jazz teacher, handsome and kind Chris, we finally managed to secure a lesson last night.
I learnt the piece "the Girl from Ipanema."It's Bossa Nova -Brazilian rhythm.
The irony is i have to try very very hard to create that "Lazy, laid back" feel. There he was, patiently trying to teach me how to feel the "lazy, relax" feeling. There i was , sitting next to him, struggling very very hard to play a "relax, lazy" piece.
I smiled, and turned to Chris and said " know what, this is indeed so ironic., I have to try so hard to be relax" .
On my journey home, from the tube station to the tube to the walking journey, i only did one thing. Clapping the Bossa-Nova.. counting 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and ... etc..
