I received mine two days ago (in CT). In fact, I received two copies – both addressed to me but the shipping slip said the other copy was for Jose in Brooklyn. I remailed it to him. So, Jose, if you are listening your copy is on the way!
Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. I have played “Snowflight” and “Garden Steps” years ago so maybe I’ll relearn them. I am working on Andrew’s “Home” now but I’m not sure that would be appropriate. “Asturias” is a bit beyond my capability right now. I’ll look at Tariq’s videos and check out the other suggestions.

Lots of Andrew York: Home, Equations of Beauty, Land Below Waves(Recently released. Recorded 1990s with Dirk Freymuth).
