Waldeck – Make My Day

A new song and artist for me, as well as a new genre “trip-hop” that I was not previously aware of. From the Waldeck album Ballroom Stories, composed by Joy Malcolm and Klaus Waldeck. The original recording features Thomas Berghammer on trumpet.

Simple, fresh, and enjoyable to play.

To quote the AllMusic Review by Mark Deming:

Producer and songwriter Waldeck takes his listeners on a musical journey through the past and present on his 2007 album Ballroom Stories. Dominated by jazzy instrumental structures and the vocal stylings of Joy Malcolm, Ballroom Stories is electronic dance music designed to evoke the sounds and moods of the 1920s, when glamour and intrigue walked hand in hand at dance halls and speakeasies.

My transcription is true and accurate to the original recording, and “Take 1” of my own recording reflected that. Although, after much encouragement from our producer, my revised recording includes significant embellishment to emphasize the “jazzy instrumental structures” of the song. I hope you like it.
