LEGENDARY MUSIC II
I love it when the first few seconds of a song sets the stage in my mind for the picture that follows. The first few strains of "Three O'Clock" immediately points me in the direction of an old western desert town where little clouds of dust puff out from beneath a gunslinger's boots as he slowly makes his way down the center of a deserted street passing quickly shuttered wooden store fronts, past shadows of faces apprehensively looking out from behind darkened windows and half opened doorways and saloon doors that are swinging slowly closed as someone has just darted through them to get inside and out of harm's way. Standing motionless, Navajo poncho over his shoulder, at the other end of the street is 'you know who', hat tipped over his brow, eyes narrowed and focused on the gunslinger's rendezvous with fate - it's a showdown at "Three O'Clock" while Andy plays this classical and beautifully hypnotizing requiem sonata to a date with destiny. And therein lies the magic, mystery, beauty and wonder of music that Andy captures so perfectly here. A tip of my old cowboy hat to you Andy for this consummate and ever so peaceful, yet enigmatically intriguing classical flamenco flavored masterpiece in the vein of the much gifted and talented Ottmar Liebert.
