  1. What fun! I’ll have to listen more carefully and figure out the meter at the beginning…

    I’m glad I won’t be auditioning for the same jobs the recent crops of music school grads are looking at!

  2. Yeah, I couldn’t figure it out on the first listen, Bob. And yes to the competition with these young ones! Wow!

    Did you happen to meet Yoshi Ishikawa when you were at the IDRS convention?

  3. Yes, briefly. I actually met him in conversation several years ago at IDRS. This year I got a smile and ‘Hi, Bob’ as he walked past my booth.

    I didn’t get to hear any performances this year since I was alone and had to man my booth, but I’ve heard him play and he’s great. His students rave about him.

  4. I’m sure impressed with his studio! Gee, I shoulda gone with you and manned your booth at times, eh? 🙂

  5. Wish you had. You woulda had fun!

  6. So often they occur when I still have work … such is life!
