Hi Trevor,

Thanks for your kind remarks. Of course, you're right about Shorter. His penetrating insight into harmony and instinct for the "hip zone" haven't been matched by anyone else I can think of.

Hi Janice and Bud,

Thank you for your kind remarks on Rio, a difficult tune if there ever was one. Glad to hear you're liking nylons (strings, not stockings). That inspires me to get that same sound into my next post.

Thanks Mike,

You're quite right. Give me old Carlos Montoya anytime, but there are some new and brilliant Flamenco players around that I've just discovered. For instance, check out Don Cortes Maya: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=359Bxg4Tp1w

What a sound he gets out of the instrument. The whole thing is just jaw-dropping. Some of those fire-breathing licks of pure Spanish soul can blast your clothes off. I hope you and others get to see that video.

Tommy,

Special thanks for those generous and kind words. In fact, I do like to add a little extra to a post if I can. Whenever I find a link that I feel people have just got to see, I'll include it, even if it relates only tangentially to the music I'm posting.

Hearing that you find them a source of new knowledge and possibly inspiration is a real thrill.

I hear you got a rep now as the blues guitar king of the Forum. Buddy, you can add my vote to that.

Dean

Thanks Dani and PGF,

I'm going to quote from my reply to MarioD about superfast guitar players:
Originally Posted By: aleck rand

In other words, I can't imagine singing or even remembering any "licks" that might make me say, "yeah!" The only feature I can tell you about what I hear is that it's fast, not that it's, say, bluesy or Trane-like or has the same quality X that that other guitarist over there has, etc.

Paco, on the other hand, seems to deliver melodic ideas along with the speed. From my point of view, speed devoid of ideas is like a double-talk artist who can do it at high speed. So, er, whad 'e say?

Dean...

I love things out of the ordinary, and this fits the bill. I play a little Gypsy Jazz, well...until my fingers so "not any more" because of the Focal Dystonia...and I admire fast but with grace and emotion, nor just fast for the sake of fast. This guy has it and your music does, too.

Terrific music, my friend! Loved every note...and the intro was super! Thanks for the YouTube link.

You never fail to impress me. It's always a pleasure clicking onto one of your songs! best to ya...

Al & Di

Hi Dean,

"Very stylish, very classy, so smooth, musical ambrosia" were just some of the phrases that faded in and out of my mind as I listened. There's no doubting the fact that you are a talented composer, arranger and performer. I loved the bass intro and the bending note.

I can't believe that 3:54 disappeared so quickly.

In a nutshell, this work was a delight to listen to.

All the best,
Noel

I listened to this fine composition the other day, Dean, and again this morning. You are so technically and musically advanced, I struggle to find something to say. Looking through the comments, I think Noel captured my sentiments.

Languishing on a "Procrastinator" album seems appropriate. I know of Wayne Shorter mostly from Steely Dan tunes. I believe he also played on THE END OF THE INNOCENCE for Don Henley, and did beautiful work for Joni Mitchell on TURBULENT INDIGO. This is a great tune, and I love your take on it!!! Very sweet indeed!! Keep posting. Take care. Greg

Hi Olemon,

You have paid me such a profound compliment that I, myself, don't know how to respond other than to reply with a deeply felt Thank You.

Thank you Noel.

Did you notice that RIO does not have the AABA form, but it's one of those exceptions that prove the rule. I've been thinking about your interesting comments on the AABA structure, so the next post will have this feature. I think you'll like it.

Greg, I wish I had thought of that ironic twist wink. I'm very pleased that you liked my take on it.
