Who can resist a title like that?
Lots of Shickele-like shifts (but more musical!) in this. Nice blend of genres - look forward to seeing it develop!

Fugetta bout it!
Loved the almost fugue, that became an almost-boogie piano, the Warner Bros violin glisses, that wandered into the Romantic Ali-ways, then skittered across the scales to land with a smirk... totally Alimar, totally fun.

Covers a lot of ground in so short a time!
An amazing combination of styles and moods, yet it shifts between them with little apparent effort. This is still becoming more interesting as it grows.

admit, the title did bring a genuine laugh. the element that struck me more than anything while listening was the "depth" of the instruments and the recording in general. very thoughtful arrangements.

If it ain't Baroque
Mightily entertaining, Al. It has such life and excitement throughout. Of course, that comes from great skill on the part of the composer and the player. Much enjoyed!

Love the piano work here. The shift at the :55 mark is particularly captivating. You have a broad palette and this piece shows it.

If It Ain't Baroque, Don't Fix It
This travels a far-reaching path of musical musings but the separate elements transition very well together and provide a great sense of excitement and fun. Thanks, Al. Regards, Peter.

Somber Baroque
This is a very pretty lament...at the start. Part 2 with the piano is more jazz than baroque, though the elements of some wonderful counterpoint do come into play. This section is very very interesting, but I don't hear it in tandem with the opening chorale-like string orch. At 2:20 there is another change in style, extremely well played, by the way. Your piano work is quite exquisite...but now you are in a much more contemporary, sort of neo-classical mode. There is so much going on in just 4 minutes that nothing seems to really take hold. All of the sections (four of them!) are intriguing and very engaging just as they are. Together, they beg for development. I think there may be a suite of pieces (perhaps a symphony breva) here and you might not know it yet. If you analyze each theme as you have them here, you may discover that each one can be expanded quite a lot and then you'd have a maybe 12-15 minute work of substance. ... All of that having been said, I sure enjoyed listening to this A LOT. You have so many creative/innovative ways of writing music. It is always such a pleasure to hear whatever you've written. (Please don't construe my other comments as negative. They are just my thoughts as I hear what you have so far.)

Were you smiling when you wrote this?
This has a lot to explore - wow. Never is there a dull moment in this full range work. Even on my third listen it is taking a lot to process, especially when you really get rolling. Sly little violin slurs. Piano that escaped from the silent movies at times then returning to an early style before going off into more of a dancing lilt along with the strings. I wonder about where the piano and violin duet is going to lead? We shall find out in your next instalment no doubt.
