wow! Dean, you never disappoint! Everything you touch turns to gold.. (you should change your forum name to MIDAS)

wonderful arrangement.. I can't even wrap my brain around what you've done here (but that's my usual reaction to your showcase posts)

You should be famous.

This one really SENDS ME!!! Beautifully arranged and mixed. Some wonderful players and a vocalist who knows how. Welcome back Dean! I've missed you!! Sam Cooke is slow dancing in his grave! Take care. Greg

Man, it's great to run into you again. This is the kind of flattery that always leaves me speechless. But, as always, you always throw in something that provokes a response. This time it concerns fame. Brother, if I saw fame coming at me, I'd turn around and run the other way and wonder what went wrong.

I'd have something in common with Justin Bieber, which would be unacceptable. I'd lose my privacy. My phone is ringing off the hook all day long as it is, with robo-calls, telemarketers, crackpots, and all kinds of appeals for money. Just based on my phone activity, I already am famous!!

No, I'll stick with a small circle of people I respect for their qualities. I'm thankful to have yours, and you can be sure you have mine.

Such kindness in your words. I've missed you too, my friend. I started what I thought was a casual involvement in SoundCloud, which eventually got out of control. I buried myself in promises - "yeah, sure I can do this tune for ya ...", "You want arrangement for that, hey, no problem ..." - which then turned into commitments. I really never recovered and now I'm always trying to catch up.

I can't believe I lucked out in this way. I never work so hard as during my professional life. I'm looking down on Cloud 9. And, thank you for your generous remarks on You Send Me.
