Wow
This is a bizarre take on a very old song> I understand this was written by
King Henry VIII of England but I maybe wrong on this. The melody is still
very much present, personally I think the bass is a bit too busy but thats
my personal preference the guitar is light and frilly, very accomplished
playing. Lovely rich tactile piece.

William,
England and your hometown Ireland is neighboring country.
Thank you for the comment.
I wanted to do the arrangement with some changes. However, I did not want to
lose a graceful charm of former song.
I love this song.
Thank you very much.

A great version...
I love the modern approach to this evergreen British tune.

There is huge scope for more variations in this style.

I love the drums, and their phrasings, especially.

marvelous!
Marvelous; a very fresh and original take on a very old song. Doing
this in 5/4 is a great idea! You've really captured a very special mood.
Does it end a bit abruptly? 10-10-10-10

composerclark,
This song is poet's surely.
Serious romanticist.
Is the ground in Britain fertile?
Wasn't the flow of the sea a cold current?
Country that gave birth to beautiful song.
Nature might be also beautiful.
Your descendant is very lovely.
10-10-10-10 to your son of gold.

Neil-san,
Also in Australia, there is beauty of nature like England.
However,
Australia is nature under the clear sun.

Thank you very much.

According to tradition...
...King Henry The VIII had TWO hit songs. The other is called PASTTIME IN
GOOD COMPANY. Will you be thrilling us with a contmeporary rendition of
of this one as well? (For a Jethro Tull version see: "King Henry's Madrigal"
on the Stormwatch album remaster).

Nice job here Tadashi-san. Fine light jazz played with a deft hand.

Be well!
Tadashi Togawa said 4657 days ago (September 26th, 2006)
PASTTIME IN GOOD COMPANY.
I cannot recall the song.
Perhaps, though it thinks the melody to be in the memory.

I will examine it.
I wish to express my gratitude for the message from you.
And,
I wish to express my gratitude as usual for your benevolent words.

oriental greensleeves?
I love the oriental moments of this version of Greensleeves, and the unexpected moments when it develops into something original and then jumps back to the traditional. This is so clever Tadashi!
