and Hawthorn, which is a group improvisation.

Notes on the tunes:
Seasons, joy amid the change of time.
TriCycle For Punky is for my rhythmic son Jacob, always on the go, shifting directions, never losing a beat.
Third Way is constructed with musical thirds.
Resurgence, yes, coming back to the adventure of life.
Waltz Eleven, a waltz in an eleven beat pattern, but then it messes around a bit.
You Never Give Me Your Money, the Beatles impacted all music.
Hawthorn, the breath, the moment, another movement of the Be Here Now Suite.
Echo Park is for Los Angeles, the sunshine and the uplifting creative mix of its people.
