Lea Ball replied to Mike Ellis's discussion Finale Notation Software in the group Songwriters, Arrangers, Composers
"You can bet on the need for cooperation between the publisher and the site for .mus file postings. Besides, one would have to be running a recent enough version of Finale to be able to access them. The probable limit is posting .pdf formatted files…"

Although it's been out for a little over 4 years, I'd like to bring to your attention my CD, Father Time Remembered. It's your classic hard bop quintet, made up of some of the hottest musicians in Portland, Oregon at the time it was made. Besides myself on bass, the band consists of Derek Sims on trumpet, Sam Burton in some of his best playing on tenor, Phil Goldberg on piano and Ron Steen on drums.

The tunes are mostly originals (8 of them), with a couple of less hackneyed standards thrown in for the benefit of timorous radio DJs. The recording is of somewhat variable quality, due to balance issues (having to do with music stand and mike placement), but the music is of uniformly good quality. The CD was reviewed in The Jazzscene (Jazz Society of Oregon) and earned a 4-star rating. That review will be posted separately at a later time.

Some samples from the recording can be found at www.cdbaby.com/cd/lbatpa . CD Baby also has copies of this CD for sale. There will be a sequel to this CD making its appearance sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas (we'll be recording in October), that will be in electronic release only, at first. Stay tuned!
