Snowbird Passing

Snowbird Passing

Liner Notes: 

I sort of missed most of 5090 this year. And I sort of missed most of this winter in the mountains too: didn't get there till spring, but was met by a late short blizzard, the last breath of winter. And now the snowbirds are almost gone and the summer returns. So here it is, warts and all, a last waltz for the snowbirds. (and an antidote to the efforts of FT's Travelling Blues Band!)

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.


Very nice, perfectly evoking sadness at something passing, but realising that it's time to move on. I especially liked the end movement which to me feels like your trying to hang on before letting go. Good as it is, but I could easily hear a full orchestra behind this, playing over pictures of the nature scene described above.

Oh Tim, you know I love your touch on the keys and I also love beautiful waltzes... this is absolutely gorgeous as it conveys the movement of time. Wonderful phrasing as it ebbs and flows.

Beautiful piano. So melancholy. Think I should do my piano practice now. Lovely.

Ahhhh... Just what I needed to listen to after catching up on the day's news headlines. Melancholic but restful, sombre but restorative.

And yes, you were missed this summer!
