Album Notes
Fettuccini Western (Common Ground) (1991) This is a melody that came to me one day while fly-fishing. This seems to happen a lot. I think fly-fishing for me must be a form of meditation. The river, my mind, the fly, and maybe a fish on the end of the line, all coming together in the stream of time. I catch a lot of fish, and even a nice tune once in a while.

One of the other things I do when I’m fishing down along the river, is pick up pretty rocks. During fishing season my front porch is covered with rocks that have caught my eye. Everyday, as I come and go, if they continue to catch my eye, I’ll toss them into the rock tumbler to polish them up.
The song fragments I “find along the river” are kind of the same. They sit around on my living room music stand for a while, which is another sort of front porch, and then if they continue to fascinate me, I run them through my tune tumbler and polish them up.
The original title, Common Ground, referred to the fact that form of the piece is mostly based on a repeating 8 bar harmonic pattern, or “ground”. It was a working title.

Recently my friend and arranger, Art Maddox, wrote a string orchestra arrangement for it that gives it a dramatic Spanish-western feel. I would love to hear it as a theme in a movie, maybe a “Spaghetti Western” -- something for the big screen. Actually, why not a “Fettuccini Western,” a little wider noodle, a little larger than your basic “Spaghetti Western.”
