I have to admit I am not a big fan of One Direction. Totally disregard their music when they become a hit among all the tweens and teens that I teach. Then one fine day, I heard History on the radio and I wondered who on earth are the singers to these songs. Surprise, surprise, it is One Direction! Then I discovered their latest hits are actually quite pleasing to my ear.
I was really hooked to History ’cause it sounded very retro to me for some reason. (I am big fan of the 40s to 80s music, so apologies need to be made). Then I started to play the melody around on the piano and then, I just had to add some jazzy chords. I have not been following up very well on my Jazz education since university. However, I was able to write a Jazz piano duet some time last year to perform with a piano student from Penang. Maybe one day I will post that up.
In a way, this will be my latest jazzy cover of a pop song. Hope whoever comes across this will like it. Here’s also a video to have a quick impression.
And here is also my recorded rendition of this cover:
