Things passes. Children that was crawling around on the floor, banging with spoons on everything they see and learning their first words, grow. One day they don't do that anymore. The small little chaps actually never come back, as they were. Only their little sweaters remain, stored in a box, as a proof of that they actually was that small once. And memories.

Some photographs may mean more to you than other, not because they're master shots but because they represent some significant part of your history. So does this tune represent a special phase of my life. A time of breaking up and moving forwards. A time of leaving a life that won't come back, the way is was.

It was not long ago, just this summer of 2006. And It was not a long move, just some kilometers. But it was a leave from a place where my kids grew up. A place where we had lived through deep sorrows and high joys. A place where I gave up career and started to focus on music again. A place where I turned from a confused seeker of old eastern teachings to a stable Chrisitan. A place which had been my home for ten years.

When I made this recording the house was halfways packed to boxes. This was a last recording before also the recording gear was packed toghether.

After finishing the recording I named it Moove, because I felt it carried the gravity of the situation, (and because of a misconception concerning the spelling of the word move).

So deeply bittersweet
This is gorgeous. Beautifully performed and recorded, as usual. And
the mood this creates is very moving, sad, poignant, longing,
introspective, wishful. So I think you captured it well.

Funny about "Moove", long ago I wrote a little Mac utility program that
took a bunch of Mac PICT files, and squished them into a QuickTime
movie... and I called this program, "MooVer":

rich and wooden
even at loow voolumes (my family is asleep) the guitar soounds lush
wooden and perfect... It's everything we've coome to expect froom
yoou, and captures the meloonchooly oof mooments loost... (OK I'm
dropping the Double O's now).. they tell me I'm 50 and they have
paperwork to prove it.. someone has greased time!!!

anyway.. when I hear you play, I always think "Someday" we would be
able to sit across from each other and have a dialog with wood and
steel... "Only glimpses of somewhere... someday"

peace to yours

A jumble of delight
I love the little stories you put in your song descriptions ... they always
enhance the listening experience, giving insights into your inspirations
and inner thoughts.

This is a lovely complex piece full of different textures and moods.
Quite appropriate as a representation of all the aspects of your life
jumbled together in boxes. The richness of your guitar sound and the
soulfulness of your playing are magical, as always.

My eyes are welling up...
with tears as the song starts and I read your song description. I know
this feeling. After moving from the place where my girls all grew up...
Gone. Places not to be visited again. And yes, the photos, the
...precious photos that bring back the fond memories of what it was
like... what the children were like and how I felt. Is the memory
sweeter than the reality? I don't know. I don't think so. Because the
process seems to continue as my girls, all now married, have their
children and my heart joys at the moments together.
Curry... you are a golden rod and blessing that through your music
seems to run through me at times.
This is a special tune... an end of an era, with feeling in every note.
And yet the road ahead is open and has its own new blessings.
Do you have a picture of your house?.... post it as the song art.

Thanks friend.

Do I know what you're talking about?...
This morning the baby mouse we found a couple days ago and were
painstakingly nursing died in the early morning...Had to tell my son
over breakfast...There was then a mouse funeral in the front yard... In
the afternoon, our neighbor brought us another garter snake...Which
we put into a little terrarium, and, once I put in some rocks,
immediately began to shed its skin... I put the skin aside to dry so my
son can bring it to school...Tonight at story-time my son grabbed a
chapter book and told me, seriously and politely, that, "Dad, I'm nine
years old now...I read my own books..." He does, at the least, want us
each to sit together for "family reading time", but I am no longer the
story reader...

There is the moving that involves geography, and there is the moving
that is what life is, and that's what I take this tune to be about...

Thank you as always, Johannes.

Another beautiful composition and performance Curry - sad but also
full of anticipation. Of all the instrumentalists here at MJ, you are the
one who says most without words. Like all your tunes, Moove is like a
short story, as if you and the guitar are one, telling that story, and as if
the story is one I want to hear.
Good luck in the new house - take all the good memories with you and
leave the rest behind.

I too have been down those roads Curry...
and you capture perfectly the pathos and the nostalgia associated with
those memories and that kind of situation. A magnificent piece this. Bless
you so much for sharing not only the music, but the story behind as well.
Life is, indeed, bittersweet, but God is good.

Be well!

Top notch performance ..
.. and under such conditions too .. pictures the scene well.

after the initial part it moved to the bit with what I thought had some
baroque tones/edge to it which I like ..and I like how it
slided effortlessly into the more modern hand-on slap/stops and picking.

It builds very well too in the arrangement.

Sad to see the old place go huh? Good subject - lots of people can relate,
key element to popularity.

Up to Your usual high standard
... and very good dynamics, with a great tone to the guitar.

By now, you've no doubt listened to Richard Thompson and Leo Kottke. Another guitarist to consider is Martin Simpson, Particularly Music for the Motherless Child, with Chinese player Wu Man.

I just have to ditto all the positive things said here.
The song by itself is moving--but the sentiment attached to it of
change and leaving some things behind makes it all the more
poignant, and each resonating chord meaningful...like those memories
and photographs.

Thank you for sharing your talent....and your thoughts, here.

Does anyone have any idea why I can't hear this song? I'd love to leave a
comment -- I like Cori Ander's stuf so much I'm tempted to ten-bomb it
without even listening (!) -- but when I press the play arrow, all I get is a
grayed out quicktime icon.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Curry, this is an exceptional work. So beautiful, so contemplative, so full
of emotion. It is wistful, yet also looking forward to the new life with new
expectations and new dreams to fulfill.

Very well done my friend,

Gorgeous intro
Cori, I'm so grateful for your ability to share the situations behind your
music with such naked honesty. Sometimes that's harder than writing
about it in song form. The intro absolutely brought tears to my ears while
reading your words. Thanks.

Willywagga said 4804 days ago (August 27th, 2006)
Ahhhh well now, this is wonderful, pure and true. The clarity you have
achieved is remarkable, the poignancy you have achieved is tangible. The
way the mood of your guitar lifts itself at times almost to a point of
melodic frustration without ever losing its delicacy and brilliance. There is
a sombre and quiet pain in the shadows, breathing out filling the air with
finality and loss.
I have a pretty old Yamaha FG375S accoustic lying back against the wall
beside me, and it's as if she's listening and smiling. If ever there was
music a guitar would write this is it. Just perfect. It's familiar already.
Thank You. Good luck with the move.

Beethoven's 7th, II
Okay, I finally got this to play in Safari! I don't know why it wouldn't
play before, but for some reason it didn't, although I got it to play in

Love the freeform introduction. It's amazing how much you are able to
express by simply playing a few chords and noodling around the
fretboard for a while.

Then you start the ground bass (or passacaglia, or chaconne), which is
the major part of the composition, which reminds me a bit of the
Allegretto (second movement) of Beethoven's 7th Symphony, and the
long journey has begun. This is all beautifully played, with masterful
control and pacing. (BTW, if you don't know the second movement of
B's 7th, you MUST listen to it right away!!! It will change your life!)

If you and Scott are planning an acoustic guitar jam one day, count me
in too! At some point I WILL submit a recording of me playing
something! So be forewarned! I've just got to figure out how to record
live onto the computer. And start practising again.

It's no wonder that you are one of the best-loved artists on this site.

To all of you
To all of you who have commented so far,

I am a bit frustrated over the fact that the macjams reply function still
is out of business, which means I am unable to reply direct on your

But I am most grateful for all the generous comments you have given
here, which are showing that you have recieved what I have wanted to
give by the music. That is most satisfying and also important for me to
hear. Without them I wouldn't have known.

You all have my greatest respect for your generousity and honesty!

Well Done, Sir
Starts a bit like ziti's Woodjammer One - then turns into the soundtrack
for an extended meditation I imagine a matador having, mentally
preparing himself for the next bull fight.
I hope your move went well.

I like that word Moove
Though this holds such sad sorrow it also represents a new life, a new beginning. Kudos for making your Moove. I can in vision you sitting there looking at those boxes and this composition inspiring your fingers to express that moment. I even like the name choice you gave this song because it is a fabulous execution and the two O's go well with smooth as well as groove and like a bass player I use to play with use to say smoove.

soft and beautiful
Soft and lovely intro. Trickles down into strong emotions. Sounds like you didn't want to leave. The guitar keeps playing on and on so sad it stops. Comes back very soft and slowly on and on again, then picks up like grabbing on not wanting to go or let go and softly says enough now, goodbye. Much of and many emotions here.
Smoothe heartfelt playing, Wonderful!

Beautifully played
Nice guitar work as always but, I know I'm probably in the minority here,
this just doesn't grab me the way most of your songs do. It seems to lack
a real melodic focus. It's probably due to my deficiency of attentiveness.
But, again, beautifully played.
