Thanks, I did, and listened to your's several more times and would change "very nice" to "rather beautiful."

Some thoughts.

There are many kinds of beauty. But the most difficult and dangerous for the artist to attempt is that which encompasses any form of gentleness, because to achieve that one almost always has to sail perilously close to the shores of the trite and the sentimental. This piece and your interpretation achieve beauty missing those treacherous shores most admirably.

thanks
See what drummer Peter Erskine said about Don Grolnick:
Quote:
His tunes have the simple elegance of a haiku poem, simple at first glance, rich with meaning upon examination and able to stir up or evoke an image or a memory upon every encounter with it.
