    Some of †he volumne levels weren't high enooughm, so here is another recording.
    This attempts to simulate the album of BILLY SINGS THE BLUES.

    Gary,

    Very nice rendering. The solo flute sounds so real.

    Gary [they all have the same name......ugh!]

    you've proved that symphonic with a swing can be possible. Nice flute and at first I didn't recognize that muted trumpet sound (or else?) but it certainoly fits in hte piece very nicely.

    Thank you Gary and Raymond.
    The trumpet w/mute was hard to balance the sound. I've made 3 recordings and little things still don't come in the way I want.
    The last solo is English horn and i†'s really weak. As soon as I get my Jazz package, I'll turn it into alto or sopranoe sax.

    Haven't heard this in a while; thanks for bringing it by, Gary.

    Overall a fine job on the rendering; though I felt perhaps
    it could have been smoother in places... a little more soft-
    handed finesse to it (which is, I will say, tough to do in
    notation and only slightly less difficult in a sequencer, I
    imagine). You've captured the languid fluidity of it, though,
    which I found quite satisfying.

    My best,
