I tried reading your piece while playing the song and I felt like I was able to pay much closer attention to the storytelling! I'm always looking for music to read/work by -- it has to be instrumental -- and this definitely works! I'm jealous of both your instrumental prowess as well as your library job! It sounds like a wonderful combo!

This is completely marvelous. And yes I do like the slidey guitars, not to mention the murmuring voices, the kazoo (?), the finely modulated typewriter, and the quirky-jaunty-bouncy horn. The library mystique has never sounded better and the visuals and commentary are deserving of a carte blanche free pass from shushing and overdue fines for life.

Great sound, that typewriter rocks! Also maybe you could lend Carter a hand! ๐Ÿ˜… โ€œMuch more with the crawling around in basements and finding hidden chests with ancient scrolls.โ€ Everyone wants your job now! Great post and thatโ€™s a definite yes on the sliding guitar. ๐ŸŽธ

Amazing, as always. I suppose thereโ€™s going to be a part of me that will forever be a librarian. โœŒ๐Ÿป

Great song! I love that all the different parts are in different keys.

I'm reading/listening to this as I work in my public library. The magic of this track is that it seemed to perfectly sync with the cars passing by the large window I'm sitting at, the older gentleman carefully reading "The Wall Street Journal", and the librarian guiding a confused patron to the right section. The slide guitars were my favorite part, with the horn (cornet?) a close second. Do you have an album of your music available anywhere? I l would love to work while listening to your compositions!

Thanx! Oh, yes, I would love to go on an adventure with Carter and Jackie!
