    "Bossa One"

    Chaps and Chapettes,

    Here is my simple and uncomplicated "Bossa One". I dedicate it to a fine British gentleman and creator of great Latin music, Joaz.

    WOW,What can I say,I am honoured and humbled by your splendid dedication,and even more splendid piece.I also remember you were one of the first to welcome me to this forum,and offer words of encouragement.Us composers tend to be solitary creatures,and we all need a bit of a boost now and then.So your kind words about my first offering,and your open-mindedness in accepting music in a somewhat alien style,really helped a lot.
    I really liked your Bossa.The harmonies have a classic brasillian feel,like you might find in paulinho da viola,and I particularly liked the Flute solo@1.30.
    Part of the fun of Samba songs is that the harmonies are really like Vaudeville(or British music-hall) songs.Whereas most post rock and roll music has opted for the 3 chord trick,Brasillian music still expresses itself in more complex harmonies.
    Thanks again Larry,and greetings to the Lone-Star State.
    regards

    Excellent piece! You are truelly versatile, Larry. You never fail to amaze me. I'll bet you could write a Gregorian chant for pop bottles.

    Thanks, Val.

    BTW, I am currently working on a Gregorian chant for Coke bottles.

    And an old chaper is an old chap/old timer, of course. I'm merely playing a bit with the words, just like yourself.

    If you feel intimidated by being called an old timer, I apologize. It's just that this avatar of yours reminds me of an old sailor or phisherman. Add a couple of golden earrings and a shagpipe, and you'd be ready for a grogg and a hornpipe. Did you ever compose any hornpipes, by the way? If you did, I'd like to hear them.

    Gee Mr. Alexander, I certainly hope I didn't forfeit my membership of your fanclub. I humbly apologize for any inconvenience, I may have caused you.
