PIANIST  and  COMPOSER

KEEP YOUR TEMPER

Keep Your Temper was the first published composition by Stride piano great, Willie "The Lion" Smith. Originally conceived as a fox-trot, it was later arranged by pianist Donald Lambert into a stride piano showpiece.  Instead of a note-for-note transcription, this edition is my personal arrangement, as inspired by Lambert's genial performance.


Here is a live recording based on my arrangement:
