Sheet Music: Score
Grateful, Hopeful, Joyful : lead sheet / Andrea Keller.
by Andrea Keller (2015)
Dedicated to the great British pianist & composer John Taylor, I composed Grateful, Hopeful, Joyful after hearing of his sudden passing in 2015. Taylor has been a major influence on me as improviser, composer, teacher and human being. I was fortunate enough to have heard him perform live, and met him on numerous occasions.
Grateful, Hopeful, Joyful is in 3 parts (as the title suggests), and draws heavily from the harmonic progression of Taylor's piece Ambleside, which he gave me at a lesson in Cologne 2002. The title reflects a celebration of Taylor's life and is a nod to his immeasurable contribution and effect on the musical world. As my tribute to Taylor, I am Grateful for having heard his music and for having met and interacted with him personally; Hopeful that I continue to strive to be a musician with as much integrity, honesty and generosity as Taylor; and Joyful as is the pleasure and fulfilment Taylor's music has brought to the lives of myself and countless others.
