    Thanks to Monica's beautiful renditions of Spanish dances, I found the music for the only Granados piece I ever played. The music is yellow because it is so faded, but it's still useful. Living in Miami, almost all of my friends are hispanic....from Cuba, Colombia, Guatemala, Argentina, etc... I hate to stereotype, but there are more passionate about life than most of us Anglo-Americans. Their television shows are sometimes what I call melodramatic. I tell you this because this posting may be melodramatic also. If it is to you, just consider it a joke. I hadn't played this piece in over thirty years until about an hour ago. So it's a bit rusty.

    30 years ! Not rusty at all then. Pretty good in fact. I can hear you have some Latin affinities. It can go right up the site if you want.

    Really nice, John. And your dynamics are much better than mine. Good job. I'm just loving these Granados pieces more and more every day.

    Thanks, Monica. The "Playera" is a little rusty, but I enjoyed fooling with it. Because I've enjoyed your Granados works so much, last night I ordered a book of various Granados ditties myself. I can't wait to get it

    Chris, feel free to put the Playera on the site if you feel it's worth it.

    I do not think this sounds rusty either and have the spanish fire that is expected. Very good and I have put it up on the site.
