Description
This is a piano solo I recorded many years ago. I debated over the title and the fact that there are no words to this song . . . or to any of my music, for that matter. But I decided to keep it as it was originally titled. I've remastered in Garage Band II. Hope you enjoy it!

Wordless music
This piece is nicely played. Or should I say "was nicely played," as it was recorded many years ago?

I wonder how differently it would sound if you recorded it as a new version with GargageBand?

But my curiosity is even more piqued by the lack of words with your music. Not that there's anything wrong with that, or that something important is missing. Just, coming from a man with musical talent and two degrees in English, words and music would seem like a natural fit : >

Thanks!
Thanks, Warren. I appreciate the kind words. Yeah, it's funny that all I do are instrumentals. But there you have it. I guess I have always looked at instrumental music (i.e. the kind of music I enjoy listening to and writing) as containing its own words. To me, as I'm sure it is with many other musicians, single notes are like letters; chords, like words; chord progressions, sentences; et cetera. Besides, the only songs I like that contain words are the old jazz and Braodway standards. And believe me, I can't write lyrics the way those cats used to. Thanks again for listening and for the nice comments.

Mellow, sweet, lonely
Nice improv feel. Lovely mind journey. If you re-record this, consider more voicing variations in the left hand and use of more of the keyboard with the right hand. This mellow, pleasant track is very satisfying. Thanks for sharing this. I like the title.

Thanks!
Thanks, Tobin. It's good to hear from you again. I appreciate the kind words. I certainly understand what you mean by using more chord voicings. I sometimes kick myself for not pursuing the piano as much as I did the guitar. Truth be known, the piano is my favorite instrument, but unfortunately not the instrument I've focussed on for the past twenty years. For some reason, when comping on the piano, my mind doesn't think to incorporate more voicings. But I will start looking at that more when playing the instrument. Thanks again for listening and for the encouraging words.

Very sweet.
I would love to hear a cleaner mix of this; maybe one day you'll dust it off and give it another treatment? It sounds like something I'd hear in a piano bar, when everyone else is talking and drinking but the song slowly yet insistently draws my attention away. I found myself humming along -- no words though.

Thanks!
Thanks for listening and for commenting. This was something I recorded about ten years ago, with my old Roland 61-key keyboard. I no longer have that keyboard and I, unfortunately, no longer remember how I played this tune. I pretty much put a chord progression together and then hit "record." I tend to remember more when improvising on guitar than on piano. Here's the kicker, though; I have always been more fond of piano than guitar, though my formal training was on guitar. Go figure! Thanks again!

Quiet

It's a very cool piano jazzy ballad .
