    For your listening pleasure.

    Just for fun:
    Sit back and have a listen. Can you name that tune?

    I don't know what came over me but I just love the GPO piano.
    I can't control myself. Please, somebody stop me !!!!


    Name that tune

    Edit:
    But waite, there's more!
    As a "Free" bonus here is a piece that I just slapped together tonight and I think it will Work great as a piano flute duet.

    Excuse the roughness, I literally just popped this one out of my head.
    I love the GPO piano...

    Pete!!
    This is GREAT!! I love it! It sounds familiar, but I don't know the name of it The GPO Piano is very very nice and I don't blame you at all for wanting to play it all of the time!!

    You'll have to find someone else to stop you though, because it won't be me!! I love you're playing!!!

    Theme from The High and the Mighty by Dmitri Tiompkin, 1954. There's a great new restoration of the movie on DVD. Nice work 88 fingers.

    And Tom wins the prize!!!!! What ever it may be.

    Yes, the Duke is the man. Was a John Wayne movie for sure but not my absolute favorite. My favorite is still Hatari and the Quite Man is a strong second.

    Thanks Steph. I don't know what got into me. I have a piece that I am doodleing with right now. I got the Melody almost all worked out but I need to write the piano and Flute part still.

    Heck long as I'm all inspired I think I will make a recording of just piano and see if you think it will work as a piano and flute duet.

    So off I go to the recording studio.

    Ok I did it.
    I am a posting freak tonight. I probably couldn't go to sleep now if I tried.


    I put it at the top but here it is again.

    I love the Theme from "The High and the Mighty". It's one of many from the fifties that seem to persist. Nice rendition too!

    So, if your 88fingers and you write a duet sketch, does the piece require 176 fingers to play? Too bad you couldn't sleep, the piece is nice and dreamy. On the other hand, I'm glad you took the time to get the piece ready and not sleep on it! Thanks for sharing these two with us.

    These came out great, 88!

    (Stumped me on the "High And Mighty"... lol.)

    Listened to them several times... really good sound on this.

    The duet sketch, to me, works fine as a piano piece... but I can also hear it as [pick an instrument] and piano. I think, were it me, I might even be tempted to try it with a French horn, English horn, etc.

    Nice work on these!

    Nice Work Pete, I am a sucker for those 50's theme tunes.
    Duet should sound Dandy with Flute.
    I guess your loss (of sleep) was our gain.
