Although. as hinted here, I was indeed thinking of following a friend's suggestion, to adapt Snootful of Hooch for flute and piano (as, indeed, I adapted just what everyone was expecting for clarinet and piano) when I actually set out to do so, I was dissatisfied with the thinness of the piano line: The fact is, I wrote it for the voice of the vibes, and if the piano sounds thin, to rewrite the part in order to do the piano justice, I should make the piece something untrue to itself. Where I am enormously pleased with the Snootful as it is. Brian and Ela are wonderfully preoccupied at present with the arrival of a newborn. I do hope they take to the piece, when time may serve.
Some years ago my friend Aaron Larget-Caplan inaugurated his New Lullaby Project, for which, it pleases me to find, my recent berceuse, Pour la petite Joséphine is an apt fit, so I shall adapt that for guitar solo.
Starting to think seriously about the April King's Chapel program.
