Hi Ray. That's a tuff subject to work with.
All sounds good from my end.
Well done sir.

Good job on this, Ray! Some very disturbing images, but they fit the song perfectly and it's a message that needs to be told.
Only suggestion would be to leave that violence against women banner that comes up at 4:04 on the screen a little longer.

Ray,

Great job on a very difficult subject. The video really hits hard...

The music and production is up to your usual high standard.

Excellent all around.

ray,

A great sounding track. A well-written song. Tough subject.

And a video of disturbing images. Video is well done, too.

Keep it up.

Harsh reality unveiled.

Like an extended P.S.A.

Worth the effort.

Thanks Blue,
I tried to hold the banner but it doesn't last in the original source...I tried to create a separate image but don't know this new software well enough yet.

When we listened and commented on the excellent audio version we wondered where you might take a video.

Perhaps Greg summed it up best, "appropriately disturbing."

Those images are hard to watch but drive the message home they do.

There is a special tier in hell for people of that ilk.

Disturbingly well done Ray.

Thank you Charlie.
It was a quick process to write & arrange. The video took about an hour to do as it was, basically, cobbling together police ads.

Like the last couple of videos I've done, there's no place in this for me or my ego.
I even balked at putting the message over the solo but decided something had to be "said".
It wasn't a pretty process but, also, thematically/lyrically arrived fully formed so there's as little of me as possible in the entire thing.
Thanks for your kind words and observations.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
