    Shameless -- James L. Hosay's 'Turquoise Daydreams'

    Hi folks,

    First I gotta apologise, I'm posting because I think there are a few people how might get a kick outta this BUT the only thing in it that's GPO is the piano... tenuous, I know

    I've done an arrangement of James L. Hosay's "Turquoise Daydreams", which is a Grade 4 concert band piece, a xylophone solo. It's a dynamic, up-tempo number with lots of great syncopation, a real vacation theme!

    I've gone from a recording (not a very good one) of the band performance and come up with a much smaller, poppier arrangement. It's now a marimba solo, with latin band accompaniment, piano, string bass, flute, B3 hammond, guitars and sax section.

    Great weather here, 24 today and 32 tomorrow (deg C ;-) so was full of energy and inspired to do something that really moves... turn it way up and dance around your living room!

    Hosay, Arr. Hawksley - Turquoise Daydreams mp3, 6.6MB

    EDIT: WARNING WARNING WARNING - it's a REALLY REALLY catchy tune - you've been warned!

    Hope you enjoy it :-)

    Very nice, John Hawksley! I like it. Outstanding bass line. Four minutes and thirty-two seconds of fun listening.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Mike, Ciao Roberto, hey Larry,

    Glad it's approved The piece is a blast to play live too! The transcription was interesting, it's mostly simple but there are some cool augmented bits... LOTS of energy! Wish I'd written it, superb catchy tune!

    John (should book his caribbean holiday now)
