In case folks in the fiddle community are thinking that I've totally lost my mind in posting this music, there is a method to my madness. :)) Buzzards in Love is an extended piece for wind ensemble that I wrote in 2009. The music has a good amount of humor and it's intended to be fun to play. If there is a school or community band in your area, please see if they could be interested in it. Contact me for the score and a set of parts. The music is being made available to interested bands for no cost. SO, HOW DOES A FIDDLE COME IN, you are probably asking? The score has several improvisation sections. The "Roadkill Interlude" section (heard as a period of silence in the demo recording) is completely open to anything that is creative and fun. I can easily imagine the band bringing in a fiddle player to cut loose in that section and totally tear it up. Thus, if there is a band in your area and if the director has an open mind and a spirit of adventure, this piece could be a great chance for a fiddler to perform with a band. Note: the demo recording was generated by Silibelius software and is a rough approximation of how the peice sounds with a real band.

Some people like music at average love, but some are crazy about it, and everyone have different taste of music. I have read few great things about old music and check tells me the tricks of downloading best music from internet. I listen music according to my mood and i love to download every latest song of my favorite singer.
