  8. Your Brad Mehldau collection is looking very impressive. Thank you again for the beautiful work and dedication. I'm half-way memorizing "Secret Love." I rave to all my friends and family about your work. Merci.

    1. Hi, you can find the transcription on the web (pianofiles)

    2. No, unfortunately on pianofiles there are only two users sharing it. One of them is not visiting the place any more and won't answer my emails. The other is from jazznote (a website) and they are charging 39 pounds, a.k.a 45 euros a.k.a 60 dollars for it!!!
      That's totally outraging, and we don't even know if it's a good transcription.
      Could you please make a transcription?
      Pretty please :)

  13. Hi Vincent, will you in the near future possibly transcribe Brad Mehldau's "Goodbye Storyteller (for Fred Myrow) live in Marciac" version? It's a very beautiful rendition. Thank you again for your beautiful work. Merci!

  14. Bonjour Vincent! T'es très gentil. Quand j'étais sur ton site web ce matin et j'ai vu ton nouveau travail, j'ai sauté sur mes pieds comme si j'avais été frappé par la foudre. "And I love her," et "Waltz for JB." Merci infiniment. On est vraiment chanceux.

    1. Je ne sais pas si je suis vraiment gentil, c'est aussi un peu de l'égoïsme : c'est pour moi avant tout que je fais ces transcriptions :)
      Mais merci ! Je suis ravi de faire des heureux !
