    Hi Gary,

    Very thoughfully done, with nice contrast between sections tied all together with the drums. I definitely got the sense of "somethin' is comin'" in the opening section. I think where this piece really acquires its shine and defining character is in the last section, where you become very much immersed in your stylistic element. I really liked the harmonies and intertwining lines through that section.

    Nicely done, Gary! Thanks for sharing this!

    Thanks for listening, Danny.
    I'd begun to think the 'road' might be bypassed
    before it left the front page.
    This piece seemed to dictate a slow pace in development. I'm not at all satisfied with the ending.
    I'm thinking maybe a quite hymn would fit there.

    An evocative characterization of that long, long
    road, Gary. With Danny, I particularly enjoyed
    the tail section of this where you dive into some
    real action on it... to me, that part really comes
    through strong and able.

    My best,

    Thanks for listening, David.
    I'm letting this piece age a little, and then I will return.
    The question becomes about how long a wind ensemble piece should be.

    I will answer this question first.

    I honestly believe that a wind ensemble piece should be long enough to continue to the end of the piece.

    Sorry, just had too.

    This is a very good interpretation of the events.


    Well done

    Thanks for listening, Ron.
    Just how many times a day does one have an opportunity
    for "come-back?" You're welcome.....
