--------
Alan Bailey is a pianist eager to play for you. He can suit his performance to your event by playing many styles of piano music, specializing in jazz piano. He has been playing piano for 20 years, and has studied jazz at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. One of his most influential teachers was the saxophone player for Harry Connick, Jr. While living in London, he played at the famous Foyle's bookstore, and in Ireland, at the Galway Guinness Oyster Festival. He currently plays with many bands and theatre productions in the Chicago area.

Alan can play solo jazz piano, or he can perform as part of his trio, the Riverside Piano Trio. The four audio clips were recorded with this piano trio. If you desire other musicians or singers, the trio has a network of other musicians to work with as well.

Get in touch and you can start to discuss and prepare the music that you want at your event!

A description of the audio clips:

- All The Things You Are is a medium tempo swing jazz standard written by Cole Porter. This is a staple of many jazz musicians.

- Yesterday is the famous song by the Beatles, recorded by the Riverside Piano Trio in a trio jazz style. The trio plays many popular songs in this style.

- Nostalgia In Times Square is a laid-back blues tune by Charles Mingus.

- How Insensitive is a samba by Antonio Carlos Jobim, representing the latin or bossa playing of Alan and his piano trio.

Alan did an outstanding job for us at our wedding reception. We hired him to play during the cocktail hour and throughout dinner (2 hrs). We gave him a vague idea of what we wanted (ellington, sinatra and glenn miller type stuff). Alan did a great job of understanding the type of music we wanted and incorporating different artists into the overall mood we were looking to set. When dinner ran late, he didn't get up and leave, or look over at us as if to say this would cost extra. He just kept on playing. We received a lot of compliments on selecting him including one from my brother who is a professional musician and band instructor. We would strongly recommend Alan to anyone looking for a talented, highly professional piano player.

We told Alan we wanted a mix of classical and 40s style Jazz for the dinner portion of our wedding reception. We did not supply many more details, deferring to his knowledge of what would be appropriate. The music for the reception was lovely. He played at a volume that allowed our guests to have comfortable conversations and his choice in music was superb. Many of our guests complimented us on our choice.
