Recorded on The Thompson Fields, "A Potter's Song" was written as a dedication to our beloved friend, Laurie Frink, who played trumpet on our recordings since our first recording in 1992. Besides being a world-renowned trumpet player and teacher, Laurie was also a skilled potter – thus the title. This work was written to feature Gary Versace on accordion, but it can also feature flügel which is also a lovely option. "A Potter's Song" has a Brazilian influence. With a running time between 5 and 6 minutes, it is not terribly difficult to play, other than it requires a soloist who can play lyrically, and who is agile with changes.
This offer comes with MP3 mixes of various kinds for solo practice, and for the rhythm section to get inside the playing of the musicians in my group.
