This song is my tribute to Joe Pass. I took a lesson or two with the great Joe when I was in L.A. in 1975 for a couple of months.

I had a two-month gig backing up a folk singer there (sort of a Jim Croce thing). I didn’t like Los Angeles and had depressive episodes both times I tried it. Maybe it’s just me.

The title is Latin for “time flies”. And it does. Sadly, too quickly.

Stay safe.

This song was an attempt at creating a similar mood to the Adagio movement of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G.

Maurice Ravel has been my favorite composer for many years. 

The approach here is very minimalist and the main concern was harmony and melody. 

I hope this music brings a little tranquility to people during this time when a little tranquility would be welcome.

Stay safe.
