FOR MAGGIE:

Maggie was an Australian Sheppard that was a member of my extended family. She was very smart and elegant. When my friends would go out of the country on vacation I would sometimes house sit for them. That's when we would get some quality Dog/ Human time. There is a recurring passage in this piece that describes our playing fetch in the park. The moment I catch her eye with the raised stick, the moment of the throw, and the long running circles of celebration followed by the inevitable grief of missing her.

    DREAMS:

    Dreams is one of my earlier pieces that really was an improvisation that I notated. It was intended to explore the emotions that only a particularly long decay reverb can create. It starts searchingly in E minor and meanders around trying to find a place to rest and it does, but in the wrong parallel key a fifth away on B minor which feels almost like a dominant chord but set up like the tonic, which to me has a slightly unsettling effect like many dreams. Resolved but....

    REMEMBRANCE:

    Initially Remembrance was about another time and place where the connections we made were strong, the love, the setting, the presence, and completeness of that time made me believe it would last forever.

    SUN, SAND, AND A LITTLE DOG:

    This piece is about my little Yorkshire terrier Henry, but it's just as much about a place where we got far away from the city and soaked up the sun and water. There were no concerns there. While I sat in the sand with my old guitar I found these notes as I watched Henry completely free to explore the shoreline and investigate every scent.

    A GUITAR RECITAL: 

    This collection of iconic pieces for guitar performed by David Franzen contains music from many cultures and centuries but they come together to weave a lyrical tale.

    This mostly live recording is not made from a single performance but is collected from many over the years and most of these pieces have latin roots and are among my all-time favorites. Manuel de Falla, Isaac Albeniz, and Paco de Lucia are the epitome of what wonderful music has come from spain's great musical traditions. Even the Bach Chaconne owes some of it's beginnings to spain where this continuous variation form originated. 

    In the best circumstances the voices of these great musicians can ring out again, in spite of their passing, in the truth of their inspirations. 

    I hope you love this music as much as I do.
