Barb, I know it takes a great deal of time and effort to get the newsletter and all the other things taken care of, and that it can be a real challenge for you. 
Seriously, what can all of us do to repay you?  There must be something, and I think many of us feel the need to express our gratitude beyond just the words.  Please let us know.

Ditto!  Thanks Barbara for everything, the beautiful thoughts and music!  I didn't know that Ted worked out "Sleepers, Awake!"?  That's one of my favorite Bach compositions!

Barbara, thank you so much for your efforts on our behalf.  I am usually waiting for the month to change over so I can get on here and see what's new, and you have always posted before I check.  Thank you so much.  I also echo what you have written about Ted this month.  Finally, having recently read what you wrote about Ted on your portion of the liner notes for Ted Greene Remembered just meant so much to me.  Folks, if you haven't gotten this yet. it is just inspiring - and a great chance to listen to Ted one more time.  Beautifully done, and each selection just speaks of the admiration that the player had for Ted Greene. Merry Christmas, Barbara and thank you again.

Yes, thanks Paul for the December Newsletter. The amount of material you put out every month is astonishing. It's great to see the lesson sheet for Jobim's How Insensitive, one of my Bossa Nova favourites. Wes Montgomery recorded a dazzling version which just soars and is worth checking out. Thanks again to everyone who contributes their time and talents to publish Ted's unique lessons and arrangements.

Thanks, John....nice to know you like the stuff.
Yeah, I love How Insensitive.  I wish Ted would have written out an arrangement of this tune.  This page is just a comping lesson.
Yes, of course, Wes' version is stellar!  I also love Pat Martino's version from "Footprints" and Metheny has done it for years and taken it to new heights.

Happened to come across an interesting short study on voice-leading as found in the tune "How Insensitive" -  for those interested in going deeper into this tune.

Thanks for posting this Robert I had a look and it's very interesting. It seems that Antonio Carlos Jobim was a master of making a simple melody go a very long way with his very clever use of harmony. In this case a melody based on three falling notes. And then taking things to their logical conclusion there is One Note Samba, where he dispenses with melody and lets the harmony do the work. And if that wasn't enough then there is that rhythm. Pure genius. Thanks again, regards,

John
