    "Styxx And Stones" (a short 'tease')

    Jazz Lovers,

    Herewith is "Styxx And Stones", a short 'tease' of a big band jazz piece that I am writing to honor (Brit. - honour) our mutual forum friend, Styxx.

    It will eventually feature all-GPO Jazz and Big Band samples. I should finish writing it soon. It will be in the neighborhood (Brit. - neighbourhood) of five minutes in length.

    Regards,

    LGA

    Cool Re: "Styxx And Stones" (a short 'tease')

    Just when my day started to look very bleak and I am in total fear of loosing my job, Larry comes along and Lifts my spirits plus puts a smile on me face (god, my face hurts )
    Many many thanks Larry. I needed this in the worst way today. Got tears in me eyes, really. Was about to lose it until I saw this post and without listening you have helped me feel better.
    I can't wait to hear it using JABB! How did you do the drums real or step programming? Very cool and if there were a Beagle in the house he would be dancing as well! (Snoopy )
    Thanks again Larry. I am indebted to you for your kind thoughts and enormous endless talent!
    Got to listen to this again!

    Sounds great! I love the tune, can't wait for you to finish, and for the JABB rendition!

    It was also extremely nice of you to write a piece for Styxx! I am glad Styxx enjoyed it! Be well, Styxx!

    Music is always a great gift.

    You deserve good things, Mikey and I'm just doing my small part to help it come to pass.

    I key in the percussion parts with my mouse one beat at a time.

    There will be some "trading fours" drum solo breaks in it. Would you like to write them? Let me know. Here's your chance to 'show up' the old man.

    My best to you,

    Thank you, S. P.

    Mikey (Styxx) has always been very nice to me and supportive also so I thought that I would do something for him.

    Thanks very much.

    It will eventually feature five GPO saxes, four trumpets, four 'bones, piano, bass, drums, guitar and kazoo. No, everything is true except the kazoo.

    I appreciate it, Rob.

    This is just a very small part of what the work will eventually be.
