    SKELETAL - The Beauty of Simplicity

    The theme of simplicity came to mind while viewing an x-ray of a recent hand injury (although the inner structure of the miracle of the human hand is far from simple).

    I have chosen these selections for their simple beauty. PEACE PIECE by the brilliant Bill Evans is the most poignant, mesmerizing sixteen measures I have encountered. This version of GEORGIA by the Swedish arranger Borje Sandquist is a relaxed, dreamy gem for the classical guitar. PORTRAIT by Staney Myers (composer of CAVATINA) is a bit more mellow and, perhaps, sadder than CAVATINA, but very beautiful.
