This song was written by David Benoit, one of my favorite contemporary composers.  As he is primarily a jazz musician, this song is a little different than most of his because it leans more towards the "easy listening" side. I have changed things around a bit and added a couple of different instruments so I hope he doesn't mind but I have mostly stuck with his original piano part.

I was in the midst of working on this song when my father-in-law passed away this past Thursday and I thought the title was fitting so....this one's for you, Pops.

Hello Trish,
as I understand it, you have dedicated this song to your father, who has left recently.
A great way to express sweetly good that you wanted and that you want forever.
You're a great person.

"easy listening" 

no i do not think so.

it is a bit "boring" and very depressing to say the least.

personal rating ZERO.

What happens when life breaks down?

When there is systemic contradiction?
My name symbolized all that was corrupt to society.
His name symbolized all that was pure.

And I was being hailed in the embrace of the man who was pure.

And these inviolable sanctities were preserved in those ten words.

And it is the de-sacralization of all of these that has put us in the mess that we find ourselves.

Isn't it true, alas it is much worse.

A person may end up believing in anything.

You know, if that human acceptance does so much for you and me.

Think of what it is when God himself puts his arms around you and says

"Welcome home".

What love is this?

It is God's love.

And no other love can be defined until that love has properly been understood.

 

 

 

If you can’t make the trip to my studio yourself, don’t worry I now have my brand new Online Mastering Service. Many of my customers are happy to leave me to it, and my wide-ranging experience ensures that you can trust me to make sound judgements on your behalf – no pun intended!

The services on offer include both attended and unattended (online) mastering, vinyl cutting, re-mastering, editing and restoration. For further details please message me here.

A gorgeous room full of lots of lovely equipment isn’t going to cut the mustard unless it’s in the hands of an experienced creative engineer who understands your music and how to get the results you’re looking for.

I personally have been mastering for over 14 years now.
i have remixed and engineered for alice deejay.

Please note home mastering and studio mastering are not the same. This is a misconception. the process is different,and while the sound of the polished track may seem the same to the NAKED EAR so to speak actually sound different to the trained ear.

THE TRACKS I WILL BE UPLOADING WILL BE ONLY "HOME" MASTERING. (fast process). music maker defaults are ok but not polished. 

most people are not concerned about the mastering there more comcerned about the FEEL.

i do not work for free so please do not sent me tracks to be mastered (for free). my time is not cheap.

====================================================================================                                 

there are some rules that are just plain idiotic. What are some examples of this behavior, why do people do it? Is it because (This is my assumption) they are afraid of the unknown? They are afraid of taking risk? Or is something that happens during the "nurturing" phase of life with overprotective parents. Maybe it's even a genetic thing.

 

IF I DO NOT LIKE THE MUSIC I WILL "NOT"  WORK WITH IT.

I ONLY EVER WORK WITH MUSIC I PERSONALLY ENJOY.
THIS WAY MY PROFESSIONAL APPROACH CAN BE MET TO VERY HIGH STANDARDS.

Hi Trish,

Very sorry for your loss, never easy.

This is a beautiful tribute to your loved one. The song is very tender and full of emotion. I can hear your celebration of life in the soothing melody.

Lovingly played, sweetly sad, a fitting song to reflect upon.

Best Regards,

Stu

Hi Trish:

Just a quick note to express my deepest sentiments to you and your husband on the lost of his father.  Always a very painful experience.  Chin-up to you and family.

Now, on to this beautifully played, Grammy Award [1999] winning song from his album, "Professional Dreamer"...  Yes, this is a song composed by (also one of my all-time favorite pianists/composers) David Benoit. 

I see there is a comment stating that this song should not be categorized in the "Easy Listening" category.  As you have stated, Mr. Benoit is generally known for his "Jazz" compositions, but he is also known to compose and perform quite a few 'lighter' Jazz tracks.  As for trying to categorize this song, over the years, it's been played over Easy Listening Radio, as well as Smooth Jazz Radio.  It is a song that is versatile enough to fit in many categories.  Music reviewer, Adam Rains, said: "Dad's Room is a beautiful ballad, with rays of light breaking into the slightly somber mood.  It shows just what a master of shading Benoit is". 

This song (as any song) may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I do know two things: 1. It's not "boring" and 2. It's sure worth more than ZERO stars!  In my opinion, an unnecessary insult to your talent as one of the finest musicians to grace this community.  That's all I'm going to say about that.

In the end, a very appropriate song; as a loving tribute to your husband's father, as well as for anyone who has ever suffered the loss of a loved one.

Sorry to hear of your loss, his body is dead but his spirit lives on in your memory just like this song. When you think of him from day to day these memoeries will comfort all your tomorrows, because the essence of him now resides within you.

This track is beautiful, reminds me of autumn trees with a patchwork of reddish yellows and browns against a back drop of gentle rolling hills.

Really sorry to hear about your father-in-law, Trish.  Both my parent-in-laws have died over the last six years, and I've had to watch my wife cope with their loss.  I hope you and your husband can transit through this difficult period as smoothly as possible.  Painlessly is too much to expect, but I'll wish you that for you as well.

This track will always have more meaning for you now.  It's not a Benoit track I'm familiar with, but you've completely sold it to me and now the original will feel like a poor copy.  Beautifully played as always - I need to programme a key to press that will write that whenever your name appears on a track credit.  What's really great is how you are embracing and including other instruments with the same Trish light touch.  Talent shines through.
