Highly unappreciated artist that did some very nice things. His version of Holst The Planets" and Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite" ... are pretty much 2nd to none.

I would have also liked to see him compose his own material, but I think his own talent was taking the music he knew so well, and translate it into the new sound ... and he did this beautifully.

I wonder if some folks think that he's just another in the line of classical musicians out there ... on any instrument. I would suggest that Tomita had more heart and soul than most!

Yeah .. a bit ... but I have never forgotten the feel and the music ... and its value to my experience ... I would even consider TD one of my "teachers", though after a while I would think that every teacher gets tired of his students and says ... the umbilical cord is now gone ... ciao!

Been busy, writing ... at work on a 2nd novel ... not sure how I can do 2 of them concurrently, but it's like one day I see this, and the next day I see that ... and they are two different books and stories! Go figure!

Not exactly inspired enough to do more work on my website with more film reviews or music reviews ... but I still post regularly at ProgArchives (Moshkito) or now and then at the Cakewalk's Coffee House Forum ... where I regularly get into arguments about music with folks that don't like music except what they know ... but at least they gave the link for Edgar's interview a great appreciation nod ... but every time one of us does that, it brings it all down ... because most of them only know songs and a couple of things here and there and of course, their DAW, but in the end, it's just another song ... hoping to get heard on the radio!

This place has more interesting people that appreciate music better, in my book. But I get tired of top ten ... !!! It's way too socialistic and populist for my tastes ... and I tend to get tired of people intelectualizing the commercial songs and their conceptual depth of the 4 beat society!
