Solo jazz piano tune shatters streaming record for Daniel Vincent
BETHANY BEACH, DE—When Daniel Vincent of DVous Music sat down at the piano to record "Straight from the heart" in one improvised take it was only an evening of just playing anything that came to mind. There was no music previously written for the song. It has shattered streams of all of his releases to date.
"I never thought this song would make the waves that it has. I just love making music regardless of the genre. Before the great musician, Chick Corea passed, he invited the public to join his practices online. I got to know him personally during that short time." says Vincent.
"He would have random people sit beside his piano at concerts, and he would create a song for them on the spot. He would just look and them, and start playing. I loved that, and started to do it with family and friends." The full-length music video is available on YouTube.
"At Waynesburg College (now Waynesburg University) we were in a national competition. We were given a piece of music we had never seen. I was a sight reader, and the score did not have notes written for the piano part—just names of chords," commented Daniel. Instead of panicking, Vincent's band director instructed him to play the root note of each chord and to listen to the music to add other notes.
