Happy Birthday - Jazz Piano Arrangement by Jonny May


By Amy MacKenzie

Piano genius Jonny May has arranged Happy Birthday in six musical styles and it's exceptionally cool.

Last week, we posted a video of pianist Jonny May playing a ragtime arrangement of Beethoven's Ode to Joy and you all absolutely loved it.

You loved it so much that Jonny has decided to treat us to another video - this time, a jazzy arrangement of 'Happy Birthday' in not one, but six styles: classical, Latin, swing, stride, ragtime, and blues.  

If you enjoyed this video, make sure to follow Jonny on his websiteInstagramFacebook and Twitter
