From the recording Afterlife: The Evolution of a Song
I went in a studio with a drummer and a bass player and recorded this version. I realized that the tempo was too fast and felt rushed. Plus, the studio piano was less than ideal with a heavy action that made it hard to play this piano part properly. I had the engineer do a quick mix for reference, but I decided to scrape this version and start over at a slower tempo, and use a different piano. Fellow musicians, my advice is decide on the exact tempo before you hit the studio - learn from my mistakes.
