    Loving the subtle dynamics in this. A wonderful piece, beautifully played, Matt. Thank you, sir.

    What a treat! Mandoline music from across Europe and the USA played with zip and gusto (as they might have said 100 or so years ago from whence these tunes originate). The multi-tracked mando band backing comes across really well. Immense credit to Mr Norman. If only there was a CD to buy.

    Beautiful playing! But what is that Fender-headed banjstrosity in the background?

    Bravo! Nice to hear a beautiful Calace piece, and performed so well!. The bass banjo in the background did scare me a little.

    David - a different "feel" this morning with that beautiful mandocello piece. Introduced me to a new song too!

    Very nice. Danny sure captured a tasteful melody there with Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn composition "Single Petal of a Rose" that was composed in honor of the Queen.

    Thanks Danny This is quite a gift.

    Fantastic... makes me want to drink a few cups of coffee or maybe some scorchin' gravy.

    Scorching the strings is more like it! That is one powerful mandolin paired with a powerful player!

    OK, that is not just a fun tune in F Major, that is BIG FUN!
    Man, that is one beefy sounding mandolin - the two of you sound fantastic together.
