Hi, 1st time poster.

I've been trying to figure out the name of this song for a while now. It plays at the end of a Cosby Show episode titled, "Claire's Place".

I have uploaded the song to Youtube, so you can listen to it. I appreciate the help.

Its a piano player who plays in the RnB/jazz idiom, and the original recording probably comes from the late 70s or early 80s.

That narrows the field quite a bit. Its does not sound like Herbie Hancock at all, but it does sound a lot like Ramsey Lewis, but as for now, I don't know the title yet. I'll keep looking, in the meantime, let me know if you find out.

My audio card is being an idiot for some reason - I heard a handful of notes on this one before it stopped working

Similar? I dunno - I heard some of your clip before I loaded this one. Will restart my computer in a tic and see if I can finish comparing.

Long story just for one link, huh? :)

Thats not the right song, but it could be the same piano player, they have similar styles.
 I assumed the op had already seen this album while he was doing his searches, but maybe not.

Hey I appreciate the help! I haven't seen this album before oddly enough, but I'm definitely gonna listen to it now that I know about it haha.

I'm guessing you already know that it's not one of the songs from the "House Full of Love..." album? Or could it possibly be one of those tracks?

Again, I appreciate the search!

EDIT: I found this album http://rateyourmusic.com/release/comp/various_artists_f2/stu_gardner_presents_total_happiness__music_from_the_bill_cosby_show_vol_ii/

But can't seem to find anyplace to listen to the tracks. I might just buy it off amazon to see if it's on there.


EDIT #2- Purchased the CD from Amazon. Fingers crossed haha.

Keep us posted, it might be on one of those albums. If your song is on the Grover Washington album, then its a part of the song where Grover's saxophone doesn't appear.

I listened to the Grover album last night and it wasn't on there. I'm hoping it's on the one I ordered. None of that music appears on iTunes or YouTube, that's strange.

You can watch the episode on youtube, but there are no credits for the song at the end of the show.

I still think its Ramsey Lewis. You might want to try a site like allmusic or amazon where you can hear song samples and try the Lewis albums from about the mid 70s to the early 90s and see if its in there somewhere.
