Description
Its ages since I posted anything,but I haven't given up on this site - its just stupid stuff like no internet,& my microphone got stolen,& I had to sell a mixer & began living in a shed which seemed like a great idea at first but has slightly turned into a nightmare in that it is situated nextdoor to the kitchen of a hotel I play in and everytime they want something done e.g wash pots they come and knock on my door.This means I don't often get the chance to concentrate properly unless I pack my rucksack and run for the hills which is what I did the other day and because its warmer than usual in the uk at the moment there were many dragonflies which as insects go has to be one of my favourite!

Its just recorded on iphone video which I then ripped the audio from so no special effects or nothing..

The video is on yabber yabber you tube btw at:-

So good to hear from you Rich! This is excellent. Jazz mixed with a large dose of Keith Emerson. Great recording quality particularly considering how difficult it is to record a piano in ideal circumstances. An iPhone? Really? Amazing work from an amazing musician.

Rich, it's great to hear something new from you. It just goes to show that talent is talent, no need for effects, $1000 interfaces and pro-tools...just a smartphone and a piano. Bad ass!

Great to
hear from you again Richard..... boogie blues for dragonflies.... this would fit well too with all the flying ants that are coming up through my living room carpet just now (looks like a snow scene with all the ant powder I've had to sprinkle).... this is quite a piece I have to say, you even got the rippling shimmering water in there too for the dragonflies to skim over..... excellent stuff as always and it doesn't matter how you did it it sounds fine, regards M

That First Section...
... would make a perfect musical backdrop for a rush hour scene in a movie, Rich.

Nice to hear from you again. Dragonflies are fascinating creatures — with voracious appetites. It's a good thing they're not as large as their prehistoric ancestors, or WE might be on their menus. ;)

Cheers,

Has a zippy energy that suits the topic. Fine playing here - and interesting development. The brief slower passages and pauses work well, too. Much enjoyed!

Thank you
The brief slower passages were where I was aware of the cleaner walking past the door.Dunno why that should put me off improvising - i used to be a cleaner there myself,but anyway sometimes it just does!

Cheers Phillip number 18!

Terrific
If dragonflies could play music, it would sound like this. They call them "frankie" in The Bahamas, and you see a lot of them in the rainy season, out to eat the mosquitoes. Amazing sound quality considering the origin - guaranteed no studio jiggery - pokery, so it's all down to you being a great musician. (Living in a shed is every British man's dream, by the way.)

WoW
You live in Bahamas,i wonder how many british men dream of living in a shed compared to those dreaming of living in bahamas.How about a shed in the bahamas! I wonder how they got that name.'frankie' by sister sledge was always one of my guilt pleasures btw.Thank you very much GRAH3AM - having our own rainy season here btw!

When I saw "paddler" I knew I had to come out of the shadows. It's been ages since I posted anything either. In fact ages since I wrote anything. A job change, a relocation back to Brooklyn from the wilds of the great MidWest- a all consuming new job at that. But I had to come see what you had offered up. What a wonderful composition- I never know what to expect from you, which is what makes the curiosity so overwhelming. Lovely, pastoral, evocative and recorded on an iPhone? Amazing. So good to hear from you!

Thank you sir racerat phil
Yes its weird isnt it - the years seem to tick by,the world has its crazy times and controversies yet the old creative world of macjams remains consistently well.....consistent? It would be a nightmare to ever find out it wasnt here.Whats amazing is that a) in a decade I've learned loads as a musician (alot from macjams) but b) haven't pogressed much as a human being - upgraded from a tent to a shed but still lots of bad habits! Great to hear from you again . which do you prefer the city or the wilds?? Rich

I will google Keith Jarrett and the word 'adepts' - my vocabulary still hasn't improved! 15 second Symphony? that sounds intriguing - Rich

A shed with a piano. Nice one. Very impressive playing, too, Rich. Have you got more than the requisite number of fingers? Sounds like it to me :-) Enjoyed. Thanks, Peter.
