Most of these tracks were done in Sonar, but I decided I needed rhythm guitar and piano, so added those from BIAB. The excellent singer is Karen Ludik from Durban South Africa.

Yes, very showtune! Karen sounds completely at home with the genre, what a lovely voice.

Bruce,

Certainly a great story in the lyrics, right up Broadway.
Karen's vocal really compliment your arrangement.

Thanks for you folks hard work and sharing!

Beautiful work, all the way 'round.... composition, arrangement, execution, and vocal.

Agree with all the above. Don't take this the wrong way, it is meant as a compliment, but I couldn't help visualizing Ricki Lake singing all the way through.

Wow! I loved it! Now, you just have to find the musical production to put it into! The piece has excellent dynamics...just the right structural changes as it gets to around the 3:00 min mark...and the ending is very nice...I give it a 10+.
