    I'm a fool to want you

    An update from 2 years ago.
    One of my favorite Billie Holiday songs.

    Thank you for sharing this Gary. It's very soothing and beautiful. A wonderful job on the rendering!

    What Michael said.

    Kind of makes me want to dig through my record collection for some Billie Holiday.

    Well done.

    Thanks for listening, Michael.
    I sometimes work towards disturbing, active music.
    Works like this tend to crank down stress in a good way.

    Thanks for listening, Hippie. Billie Holiday is the ONLY singer I listen to.
    Her voice & delivery were unique. I think her freedom comes from listening-not reading music. Descriptions of her recording seem to reflect
    that she didn't read(music). Reading music can sometimes effect performance and that is why people memorize their music.

    The flute part has a lightness of a lyrical Gluck opera's solo flute. I think of his "Orpheo and Euridice."

    You are right about memorizing music. Many great performers and conductors close their eyes while playing or conducting for huge audiences.

    Thanks for listening, Fred.
    I have been struck with the sound of the flute-both in Finale and in GPO. I prefer the GPO solo Vibrato flute to the CMB or Jazz sound when there is a line emphasizing flute.

    Hi Gary, this is a beautiful piece, very pensive and evocative. The flute and strings are elegantly rendered. This really has the feel of a performance to me. Very enjoyable. John

    Gary -


    This is a GREAT rendering of a wonderful piece. I like the GPO solo flute as well. Very well done!

    Thanks for listening ted and John.
    When I 1st started doing pieces on this site, I simply put the notes in(by mouse) and placed appropriate dynamics at obvious spots. Thanks to many comments & in reading other comments, I now may put cresc./decresc in every instance of directional movement in a line. The secret is to make each line sound as if it were being performed live, and to use different dynamics for melody & background. (still by mouse)

    Hi, Gary

    Very pretty, moody and silky recording of this tune. I'm impressed!

    Amazing to me that you or anyone can get music sounding as good as this without a keyboard!--whew!

    Thanks, buddy.
