The heart felt sincerity of your tribute comes through loud, clear, strongly, Larry. Soldiers engaged in the contemporary world-wide madness, sometimes losing their lives because of it - they couldn't have enough tributes written in their honor.
I think anyone here listening to your new piece will be caught up in an unexpected way. We're so accustomed to your trademarks of high energy and humor - it's always good for us to hear from your more serious side.
Please allow me a general comment of the technical kind - This recording has a more stiff quality than most of your tracks. I think it's a combination of low reverb levels and rather strict quantization. It's detracting from the mood of your work to some degree. In case there are elements you know you could adjust, I feel you would be serving your music well to see about a new rendering/recording.
