About the Music

This tune features the acoustic piano. As the arrangement unfolds... strings, frame drums and Native American Flute are added.

In case some of you might be interested in the process of how I compose, I took a snapshot of my scratch "score" of this tune. It's pretty minimal as you can see but it works for me. The melody note is on top with the basic chord flavor below. That's it!

Occasionally I notate greater detail on rhythms but basically I hear things in my head and just play them onto tracks. Sometimes I will create a lead sheet using Finale and of course, if I play with a group, more complete charts are transcribed in Finale.
