Real recorder?
Lovely piece and a nice solo. Nice to know that the instrument so abused by second graders can sound so good in the hands of a pro!

Yep, real recorder
When John asked me to play on this, at first I thought of using a lower instrument, because the soprano recorder can sound a bit shrill, especially in the high notes, and this piece actually goes quite high. But when I recorded it, it sounded wonderful to me, so I stayed with the, much maligned, soprano recorder.

This is...
beautiful. Very serene and pleasant. As someone who has played tin flute and alto recorder on a few songs... you do a great job with that soprano recorder. Good choice.

Score...
I really like this. Between you and Smokeyvw and these great relaxing pieces that you're sharing, I've become pleasantly relaxed this afternoon. I also feel like I've hit the jackpot, too; this is just beautiful.

Yep - this is really a wonderful piece of music. I thorougly enjoyed it. Thanks Vic! Macca

How lovely!
This lush, full and rich "light jazz" orchestration reminds me very much of those wonderful Mancini scores from the '60s. This is excellently arranged, and creates a mellow mood, reminiscent of "Alfie".

Your recorder playing is excellent, especially in view of the soprano's pitfalls as you stated. You surmounted these very successfully; your tone is sweet and expressive. The higher range of the soprano suits this piece perfectly.

I know that this project had a specific goal and purpose, but I find myself wishing that the recorder had been more prominently featured in the piece. It's so obviously "live" in this otherwise synthesized mix that it begs to be a solo.

Also, the very end of this piece seemed a bit abrupt and sudden.

Otherwise, it's very nice music -- downloaded! ;-)

Lovely tune
and a wonderful job playing the recorder, Vic. This is music to kick back with at the end of a hectic day. Beautiful job.

Congrats John and Vic
Wow! Reminds me of those real longing, romantic soundtracks from the sixties. Just a wonderful job. And the recorder part is really sweet.
Thanks Vic,
