"Love and Affection" is one of my favorite songs. I never get tired of hearing it.

Todd Mason said...

Nor do I. I don't think A is too tired of it (I hope...we've been out of touch).

Love the Brubeck. There's a patch there where DB seems to be playing in 3 different time signatures at once. And Desmond is always a delight. Thanks.

"Waltz Limp" is from a ballet he never quite finished, A Maiden in the Tower, in which each of three principle dancers had their own time signature. The completed movements were included in the album Countdown: Time in Outer Space...thanks for the comment! (And congratulations on the book.)
