Hey Ralph. Just joined in after a lovely bike ride. And REALLY diggin' the Roy / 'Crossings'. Moody, full of texture. Almost bluegrass-y at times? More happy homework on me... Hopping in on the ol' interweb thingy as we type. Expect this one will be tricky to dig up. ;^)

Tim sent this and two other works from that release to me but he does note that it is on Youtube in his note. Yea, indeed, great day for a bike ride.

Thanks for the tip Ralph. Found the track played today on YouTube, but nothing else useful there (yet). And YT sound quality is often less than ideal too -- will give a close listen there (after you program, 'natch). Found the CD on Albany Records -- it is a comp with several other composers. But I have exactly -0% space for CDs. Plus could get "fired" from CKCU by my spouse. ;^) Shovel firmly in hand to locate a digital...

He mentioned Spotify as well if that's of any help.

Can't remember offhand if he had a web site or perhaps a web site for Rice University. This compilation was a project of the students and faculty there

Hi Peter — thanks for listening! And I like the observation about bluegrass. There are definite guitar-isms in the piece. My web address is If you email me from the address on the "contact" page, I can get you digital files of the CD (shhhh! Don't tell Albany!)
