Thank you for putting this together! Sounds great!
California has a chorus that camouflages the dramatic irony of the verse narrative. If it weren’t for the unusual intro, it’d seem zirconium. Christopher Youngblood
Circle of No Regrets sounds quaint. That’s what makes it hit. Unless you turn your ears on, it’s a boring song, but once you do, it’s hard to take.
It’s almost like you’re giving the audience an option. Christopher Youngblood
I wrote to my children, my answer. I told the how I watched them thru the window and enjoyed them in ways they never knew. How seeing them learn and succeed at their efforts was such pleasure to me. How discovering who they were by the talents and generosity they exhibited made me happy...The first response I got was from Embyr, now a registered nurse, mother of 4, just said, "Jim, you were mean."
Thanks, James! I think I started playing this tune after watching a season of Justified. Kind of in the same ballpark as the show's theme song.

I listened to Kite a bunch of times, trying to think how it could be improved (it can’t be), and it occurred to me that Ben Franklin flew a key. That part of the story had never occurred to me as important before. But it’s like he was trying to unlock something.
Maybe he tried it on a clear day and let the kite rise to where he couldn’t see it. That’d be a different experiment altogether. Christopher Youngblood
Loving the sound here! Downloaded!
Great song, Brett! The title give me a little twinge of anxiety...I hope it doesn’t happen.
verily nicely made--- I am going think about a mash for this if something has not been done yet-
Love the piano. Love the brevity, and the words themselves. Love "voice like confetti"! I get more about her story from the music itself. The words set it up beautifully. But the music, the back up, the energy had me seeing those waves, and sensing the sleeping fish beneath! Love the "tip" of another story, her buying l ip gloss in NYC. Love that that is all that you gave.

Nice song. Don'y worry about accessing yourself... keep up the great music :)
Nice drive to the rhythm. Cool song. :)
Nice neoclassical trio - very pleasant!
The octave mandolin is available at music stores that deal in folk / country instruments. I bought mine used and is made by Trinity College. Not sure if they are still in business. Its double the size and not surprisingly tuned as a regular mandolin but an octave below. Search for Sierra Hull on youtube - excellent mandolin player and has some videos that compare the two.
Oh I do love ... mind you, I am your Jazz/Blues buddy .... Ha Ha ....
Nice sounding instrument. What make is it and from where did you obtain it?
LOVE IT, LOVE IT . . . . . . . NICE TONES, GREAT STORY LINE.
this is cool - sounds very early electronic music with the pops and reverb - fav'd!
