Description
Well folks, the CD, "Naturally Composed" is finally done and will be released around June 1st. This is track #3 from the album - a solo piano piece that I wrote about 10 years ago and named for my dog, Bailey. I've never posted this solo version of the song, but some of you may recognize it from my very first collab - Motu used a slightly altered version of it in Summer Storm.

Anyway, the CD and digital download will be available on CD Baby in the next couple of weeks. I'll keep you updated. In the meantime, enjoy Bailey's Song.

Gorgeous rich piano work...
and just makes me pace faster, waiting, waiting... anticipating your release! Congratulations on all the hard work getting all the songs recorded, mixed, CD cover art done, and then pushed through CDBaby and DiskSuperDupers! This is a wonderful piece, upbeat, and flowing like sunshine across the front porch on a Summer morning. I'll be ordering your CD as soon as it is ready!
ttfn,

reminds me of...
... of So Far, So Good, a wonderful album- going back to the late eighties, early nineties. Relaxing music for the weary. Thanks.

Early morning
enjoyment. Warm and heartfelt. It's a lovely composition and very well played. It sounds great too, on my monitors - a good mix.

Have you seen the film "My Life as a Dog"? Your tune could easily replace the wonderful piano theme of that film.

a new age hymn
I love the sense of build, the graceful balance, the comforting repetition of intervals and rhythm, the bittersweet adagio middle section, and the regaining of strength and vigor. Like a new age hymn: a statement of fortitude in this new world of ours.

Very nice. I love the chord progressions in this piece, and the constant manipulation of tempo actually does a great job of setting the pace. Masterfully done. I look forward to your cd Shay!

Brilliance and heart
Much more than a tribute, this is elegant and poignant, sunny and wet with rain. I love the progression and rit. at 1:43 in particular, but it is hard to point out anything as an outstanding attribute when the whole piece melds together and speaks with one true voice.

Congratulations Shay, and best of luck with the CD!! And thanks for letting us have a listen before the CD is published.

Peace,
Doug

paul f. page said 2394 days ago (May 25th, 2011)
Simplicity...
is at the heart of this poignant song. Tobin called it correctly: a modern hymn. You take that descending pattern from start to finish and run it through a very pleasant series of turns that are very satisfying. The rubato now and again at cadences and the modulation of touch are strong features of this piece, too. It is so nice to NOT hear a metronome guiding your playing. There is breath here...and so there is life. (Congratulations on the new CD. It is always a major event to produce one of those. I wish you much success with it.)

Thanks Shay
Sounding great so I ventured a download, since you offered it. Will it get to iTunes Store eventually as well? I tend to buy my music there it seems...

All the best for the album release, I'm sure it will go splendid!

I left my self-center and rode the melodies to the edge...then came back to my focus. Cool, you made me float a bit there.

I'm enjoying every bit of it...
The pace of it's just right to my ears, time perfect, but not stiff, really musical... great piano tone... The tune itself is pretty, thoughtful, not syrupy or sappy.... When you lay a little bit of low note in there with the left hand it has a nice warm heft to it, puts a bit of burr on the crystal clear midrange that balances things nicely...

Thanks!
I love the rise and fall of the piece, both in terms of melody and attack. Has an inspirational quality. I see Bailey running across a large park for no reason other than the joy of running, then sniffing around, then settling down exhausted on the back seat of the car!
