**DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS** Well, this one was fun! I've always admired Mary Chapin Carpenter. Not necessarily all her music, but she writes and sings in a folksy, sincere way that I enjoy. This is one of her best, IMHO, and it was requested by DAISYJOY. Of course, I took the opportunity to play way too much and selfishly add my own interpretation. Anyway, thanks for this one, Joy! Enjoy!

**DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS** This was a request from JAZZIN-J, and although it's a fine jazz combo track, it was REALLY difficult to find 'clean' places to play because this keyboard player played almost every free spot, every style and almost every rhythm possible in this tune. The spots that he missed were ably filled in by his cousin the vibes player! Ahhhh, I kid!! Maybe not so ably!! Hey, I'm not the soloist here....I'm just a backup horn player....I hope I left some spots for all of you to sing! It's a great tune, and it's not SBI ! Enjoy!!

Feeling Good

**DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS** Once again, 'Snapping time has been hard for me to find lately, and it looks like it will be that way for the next several months. But I'll get here when I can and I will still try to get to all the requests...eventually! This was a request from AMIE_46 (Aase) and it's a neat tune, but it has a very long a capella intro to deal with. I stayed out of that, and only gave a few notes to make your starting pitch more evident. After the intro, it should be smooth sailing.....Enjoy!

I had a request to sing this song...and that country fella in me had to give it a go! Besides, it's a great tune for Valentine's Day! By the way, thanks for all the hearts!

**DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS** I did this several months ago, and SHERRIE asked if I could do it in a lower key. Of course I can! Enjoy!

I finally got some time to devote to music! This was requested by LIZHONEY, and I had no idea anything by this band was here! It's a wonderful group that deserved every bit of the acclaim that it did. After all, any band good enough to backup Marvin Gaye is alright with me! I'm even making an exception to the 'NO SBI!!!" rule for this one....if SBI did all their tracks this well, I'd be their biggest fan! This tune made me miss my tenor sax, but I did what I could with the alto. I hope you like it!

**DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS** Last night I thought I played a **DUETS** version of this beautiful tune, but I mistakenly recorded on the demo track, I think! Anyway, it's a gorgeous track, and I love the 3/4 time.... Enjoy! Now, back to the SUPER BOWL!!

I had another of those 'anonymous' requests to sing a song. This one is a bit different, because the requestee is celebrating her birthday tomorrow. She suggested that I substitute a song for whatever gift she thinks she may have received from me! (Old joke: I tried to wrap your birthday gift, but the ribbon kept getting stuck in my zipper!) (Did he just say that??) (Yes, I'm afraid that he did!) (Must be the cold medicine!!) Anyway, I have a terrible sinus infection right now, and the words sound more like "Shab-a-doe" when I sing them, but, hey...it's the thought that counts! Perfect song for a very nice lady! Happy Birthday! (Also available for weddings, anniversaries and bar mitzvahs!!) (Oh, just kidding!) Now, I'm going back to bed!

**DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS** I'm back, but I only have time for one song tonight. It was a 'suggestion' from YANKEE_JULIE (Julie) several weeks back and another that I never heard before. It's a nice track, and the band sounds excellent. I may have to check this T. Graham dude out some more!! Enjoy!
