    I'm generally not a fan of piano-only tracks, but this is lovely. As if The Beatles and Guaraldi met somewhere. Nicely done.

    @peterkeys88: You're welcome, thanks for listening! The album isn't done yet, though. Still have to do the overture and the Russia dance. I hope to get those two done next year.

    @adamconyne: Thanks, man. It was originally a minor second but it didn't feel... desolate... enough. Duplicated the Rhodes track, reversed one of them, then offset it to align the attacks. Of course, reverb is liberally applied.

    I'm going to admit that this one kind of grossed me out. (I have this thing about hearing food in people's mouths... it kind of makes me crazy.) That said, add a healthy dose of reverb, some echo, and a good layer of chorus, and this has become one of my favorite clips in this project so far.

    @Awed Job: I've been trying to get a recording of this for years but every time I reach for a recording device, he wakes up. I'm still not quite sure how I managed it this time. Some times, his snoring vibrates the entire bed. I don't even have to put in a quarter!
