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.

I only recently discovered this live Youtube video.
I have no idea who posted it, but I like it.
Live videos like this show up from time to time and I have no problem with them.
My goal is to get the music to as many people as possible.
The two songs played in Part One posted here are two of my songs.
First is “Sans Souci”.
This is a rather extended version and at one point Gary (violin) and I do some very nice interplay.
The second song is a tune I wrote in homage to Joe Pass, the legendary guitarist with whom I had a couple of lessons with in L.A. in 1975.
Joe passed away in 1994.
This second song is called “Tempus Fugit.”
