My friend / teacher / mentor passed away nearly three weeks ago. This is a small token in his memory...one of Peter's compositions titled TANGO TONIGHT.

I recorded the 'bandon' part first - it's pretty much what's in Peter's sheet of the tune. Next I put down the bass...some of that is played on my acoustic bass, most on a keyboard - using Spectrasonics Trilian sampled Martin acoustic bass. In order to get the two sounding similar, the bass signal is processed through multiple plugins. Finally I put down the single-reed accordion part...which is improvised.

I'm certain Peter would have played this tune quite differently, also certain that he'd have enjoyed my take on it...since he was always interested to experience what each individual brings to a musical work.
