Beautiful music. Thanks for sharing.
By the way, does your lovely sister know how sophisticated you are? Must run in the family.
Glad you like the music, Bill! My sister and I have a few overlapping musical preferences, but not many. Sophistication takes many forms. 🙂
Brad, this is excellent. So gorgeous. I feel smarter already.
Glad you enjoy the music, Greg. Happy Thanksgiving!
