    Victor Borge would be proud! (That's a compliment).
    A lot of fun, Steve, and a great listen to get the day going.

    This is a great laugh. And executed with considerable skill.

    I am now looking forward to your version of the "One Note Samba" in the styles of, Buxtehude, Stravinsky,Chopin, and Oscar Peterson.

    I beg -- no plead -- and pray for MORE, MORE!

    There is an album waiting here. This is a very uplifting reminder of Allen Sherman (& Boston Pops) "Variations on How Dry I Am" and "End of A Symphony."

    A way for serious music to be taken not so seriously....

    I LOVE IT....RAVE RAVE...

    Wonderful!

    I'd seen Borge live a number of times, and it's great to hear resonances of his humorous soul.

    This is extremely well done, too; what a pleasure to listen to -- about five times so far, in fact... lol. Superb piano writing.

    And Bill's got it all wrong. This is more fun than a porcupine in your shorts, for sure...

    Wow!!

    This arrangement caught me completely by surprise!

    Who would have thought Chop Sticks could be so much fun?

    This was superbly executed! ...You interwove a theme between styles with cleverness and skill!


    Terrific work!
