Topic: Laurie and Her Wonderdog

  1. #1

    Laurie and Her Wonderdog

    I piece I wrote in memory of a friend (LaurieZ) and keyboard player who passed away earlier this year. This is the first piece I started and completed in my "new" studio using GPO and East/West Piano.


    A more complete complete diary of the story behind this piece is available at:

    Hope you enjoy.

    That's very pretty, Pat. It's some good writing and I enjoyed the listen.

    Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Hi Pat:

    A definitely, marvelous melody that is finely crafted with your orchestration and awesome abilities with GPO and your East/West piano. This is a fine tribute to LaurieZ and her "wonderdog" and I know she is listening to it right now.

    I don't have any criticisms at all, but I do have a suggestion. Maybe the last time through could have been in a modulated key after a short transition to give it a "big" lift. You know, like the Sinatra days and his fabulous arrangements. But, regardless, I really enjoyed this piece immensely and, even more, your reason for writing it.

    Really nice writing, good continuity of ideas throughout. The scoring really does it justice as well as the GPO and your East/West piano.

    Absolutely gorgeous, Pat; both the writing and the
    rendering. I've listened through this a number of
    times... what a wonderful and moving tribute to LaurieZ.

    I wonder if you might consider a second "movement"
    to this, Pat, based on the initial material. I have the
    sense that there are things left unsaid...

    With admiration,

    Very nice piece. The solo woodwinds really compliment the piano.
