Revisiting Some Jazz Fusion Tunes – Part III

These three numbers, the second of which I posted some time ago, constitute something of a memorial “suite” to my father, as I wrote all three during the months he was dying of congestive heart failure.

“Barebones”, the tune I’ve posted previously, was written when I realized he was not going to survive this time, as he had many times before when hospitalized with heart problems.

“Homecoming” was written when –as the result of a new type of pacemaker — he temporarily recovered much of his strength and was able to go back home with my mother. The day he did was a very emotional one for me. Unfortunately, his homecoming only lasted about four weeks.

“Forever in my Heart” was written shortly after his funeral.

Barebones Stream MP3
Forever in my Heart Stream MP3

I think they are best listened to in the order listed.
