Greetings all !
I've just uploaded an updated mix of "Timeless" and will be doing the same along the way for "Estrela..." and "Children...".
Improvements in my computer OS and DAW have pushed me to try to improve the audio for some of the tracks, sidelining work on a new one which will resume in the coming months.
Be well, everyone !

Hi folks - tune list adjustment !
I've removed "Timeless" from the list for the time being - checked today and decided I couldn't live with the mix.
I'll replace it in July when its TuneCore renewal date passes.
Meanwhile, I'll work on the necessary fixes as well as a new piece under construction.
Be well everyone !

Greetings all !
Thanks again for your encouragement - particularly today's new subscribers.
Obvious to most of you, I'm sure, is the leisurely pace at which new pieces arrive.
I do have one under construction but expect a couple more months will be needed to complete.
Surgery last fall, the pandemic and the recent political mayhem have deflected the necessary concentration !
Be safe everyone !

Greetings all !
I've reloaded a mix of "Timeless" that meets my intentions much more than the one I took down in April.
I found the engineering aspect of the project very taxing, but I think I can live with the current results.
It has a kind of "old" character - was thinking of "Casablanca" - there are a couple of hints in the piano track - one in an interlude just before the ending vamp, another just before the last chord.
As always, if anyone is feeling generous, tracks can be purchased here:

Be safe and well !
