    Final version of BALLAD for ALTO SAX

    This is the a b s o l u t e final version of the 2nd movement of
    my alto solo.
    I made changes after live performers played it.
    SUPRISE!! Just because computer can perform music, it may not work in live setting.

    Gary, this is definitely one of my favorites from your fertile musical imagination. This final version is wonderfully bluesy in a non-cliche manner.

    AND I'm sure that a lot of us would like to know some of the details concerning what you learned when live musicians played this--the adjustments you had to make. That's info we could all benefit from.

    Ah, those pesky live musicians, always getting in the way of good music... I don't remember early versions of this. I like this final version a lot.

    Thanks for listening, Randy.
    I just now(1:00 AM SUN) flew back from Virginia attending
    a Navy Musicians Association get-together.
    A lot of playing Dance Band, Jazz & Concert Band.
    From a live practice I found out what I should have known. Complex rhythms, long runs with non-key fingerings, and different rhythm in solo from the accompaniment
    slows down the performance & would probably deter players from considering the music.
    Trent, you can hear most of the versionson my soundclick page.
    Thanks for listening.
