Description
Well, I did it again! After the last FINAL version, I refined this one more time. It simply beckoned me to do it. I guess this exemplifies eight years at MacJams. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks again for listening,
Alimar

PS - A special thanks to Doug Somers for all his valuable input.

Nailed it
We owe you a debt for sharing this work so freely and being an inspiration to all who toil in the intricacies of such compositions. Nicely done would be a massive understatement.

Let's leave it at I really enjoyed listening to this latest in the development of this work and many thanks for the download.

Thanks, Doug
You must have known that i would tackle this at least one more time! Your enlightening suggestions helped out considerably. After reading your comments, I digested everything you said... Left it alone for awhile... Then went back in with new ears. I dont know if I followed your lead to the letter or not, but I used your words as my guideline. Until I can render this with better sound samples, I will consider it satisfactory 'as is'.

Once again, I appreciate all your input and detailed critique.

Regards,
Al

Back again
You, my friend, have been a busy man! You've gone and changed a lot more than I thought. I'm on vacation at the moment and so am not spending much time at all listening to MacJams. Today, with a little more time than I could spend late last night I've had at the chance to give the whole thing a more careful listen.

At 0:42 you have this little clarinet run that reminds me of a Gershwinesque reference. New flourishes follow that and then I love the part around 1:14 where you have an almost jazzy bass run going on with polyrhythmic brushed snare against the strings with a jazzy flute not unlike Bolling's suite. In fact this section up to 1:30 is like a re-write. OK, I could go on AND ON but overall this new version SHINES. It is like you have literally polished the old one and all of these new facets have come out to reflect the light.

You may replace Danny Elfman as Tim Burton's go to composer!

Congratulations again!

I was seventeen...
... The first time I heard Jean-Pierre Rampal and Claude Bolling. I would take out the 'Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano' record at the public library for months on end. Doug, thanks again and again...

Something tells me
That the only "final" versions of your stuff will come when you join the great rock'n'roll band in the sky :)

Listening to this, I got all sorts of visuals. I could really see this as the score for some sort of animated short, something primordial, perhaps beginning with the birth of life in the ocean, progressing through bacteria, to worms, to shelled creatures, to something like a giant lobster climbing out on land.

Ha!
Some people here know me all too well! I will never be finished... the journey, after all, is more important than that pesky ole destination. Thanks, Snow!

So satisfying
A tonal feast
leaping and gyrating
frenetic
energy pulsing
and pushing
until at last
all is spent

Very Well Done!
I hear a little of Gershwin (good use of Clarinet in a jazzy style) and Stravinsky (Rites of Spring) in this. Done with great aplomb! Added to favorites!
