Album Notes
THE ART OF YOU AND I is another eclectic mix

4 of the songs have become popular thus far
"Town for Tired People" a folk based piece
"The Ukulele Crime" darkly humorous subject matter in a cafe jazz style.
"Hard not to talk like Elvis" more humour in an early rockish mode
" Love" a simple country /folk tune that has become quite a singalong favorite.
So a variety of things have appealed

Reviewers have commented on the stellar playing and indeed kudos to the musicians I hired
Reviewers have commented favorably on the lyrics --thank you very much
People have enjoyed the humour - thank god!

To give you a better idea of what you'll hear on this album here are individual song descriptions

The Art of You and I
A straight ahead light jazz tinged piece in a 6/4 groove

Town for tired people
A folk based picture of a little town somewhere in Alberta-very Canadiana

Ukulele Crime
Let’s just say that bad musicianship can sometimes have dire consequences

Spider Ray and Red Haired Mary
A fond remembrance of a theatre and those who ran it

Tin Canoe
Inspired by nearly being caught in a lightening storm in the pouring rain in the middle of a lake in - yes - a large metal canoe.

Touch of you
Straight ahead need - about as pop as the album gets

Hard not to talk like Elvis
A tale of dance party possession and subsequent grooviness

The Sunset
About the resurrection of a building by that name

Wingdham south of Wells
A place with a very small population. So small that inter-species relationships are quite normal.

Take a guess

Candlelight (tired man)
Words of comfort from a very tired man

Thanks for reading all this. I hope it helps you buy and enjoy the album
