Wednesday 18th January 2006 - Beethoven's Lament - by Jim Taylor. Copyright © 2006 James K Taylor, all rights reserved. I caught a little mouse in the gym's concession stand this morning and the elementary kids named him Beethoven. While waiting for the 6th grade band to arrive (I now teach kindergarten through twelfth grade) I played in this sad little song. The mouse started jumping around in the jar I have it in. I think the mouse was more upset over my music than being trapped. I will take it home and let it go after winter (or when my wife finds out!!) (5 k, 121 sec)
18th January 2003 - Jazzmanian Bevel - - copyright © 2002 Ron Roos, all rights reserved. Smooth jazz working into an upbeat section later on. (29 k, 308 sec)
January 18th 2000 - The Millennium - - copyright © 1999, Oskar Schuster ( - all rights reserved. With this song I want to wish all visitors and composers of the CMD much fortune for the new Millennium. (45 k, 178 sec)

Hello! (posted by Daniel Rowe, 24 Nov 2017, 23:16)

It's been three months since I've posted anything, but I see the Diary is still here, with a few new tunes. I know Thanksgiving is an "American" holiday, but I'd like to take this occasion to thank Keith for giving us this platform to express ourselves.
