and good wishes for 2009 to all ljp contributors and lurkers from me.

lots of distractions from music in the last year, but things are picking up again.  here's something we recorded a few weeks ago, called ducks on the pond.  just shows how tricky it can be for piano and guitar to avoid treading on each other's toes.

rest ye merry

wow - nice stuff sid!  thanks & happy new year!
lovely duet sid. look forward to hearing more.

here's to a fresh 2009.
wonderful playing sid. and what a fascinating website. happy new year from oz-tralia. doug
that is beautiful sid.  i think you and the guitar player a working great together.  it is the most difficult type of duet though.  that type of thing can not ever be totally tight unless  you are performing it together a few nights a week for a year or more.  happy new year.
i hope to find time to listen to it soon.

happy new year to you sid and your lovely wife.

and to all here at ljp!
happy jazzy new year everybody !!!
i really liked it. now all you need is a movie to go with the soundtrack! <g>

the interplay between guitar and piano was luscious. thank you for sharing!
nice playing sid! sounds like you are using a digital sound on that recording, what sound do you use?
many thanks for the good wishes, and the morale-boosting reactions to ducks.  i'm taking them as a good omen for the new year.

savage, you're right - the piano sound is either a roland grand, or it might be from garritan jabb, i forget which.
