    "The Homecoming"

    All,

    I composed this after seeing a plane load of flag-draped caskets on TV. Fallen American soldiers were being returned from Iraq and Afghanistan to the USA.

    It was their final "Homecoming".

    Re: "The Homecoming"

    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.

    I salute you, Mr. Larry.

    Randy

    I never use quantization.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Yes it's a bit of surprise, the sad and serious composing by you, but it may just enforce the perception of humanity we have of you Larry.

    Moving piece my friend.
