It gives me an image of Scrooge and Goldie dancing!

I like your imagery Al.

Rags are interesting and I am glad we are checking it out. The tempos release the magic hgen restrained

Nice. This would sound great at a higher pitch too. What's a "magic hgen"?
Comment by Al Smitley on January 24, 2016 at 9:52am

Thanks for asking, Paul.  I'm not familiar with the term and neither is the internet, at least via my hasty search.  Maybe it was a typo!

Ha ha...wow. The sentence was meant to say "The tempos release the magic when restrained"

I had been listening to a lot of Scott Jolpin the last few weeks. There is an interesting effect created by holding back phrases and tempos ( not on all of course, but many ). The syncopation has a very deliberate way of fitting together. I see this relating to some of the earlier banjo stuff that began to move in this direction.

....and Paul and I thought we must be dealing with a comrade of superior vocabulary and articulation!
