I hope that Creative Commons licenses become very standard, widespread

I was so tired by the time I recorded the piano that I actually played
the piano the sloppiest. :-) The percussion is loose--like you say,
probably *too* loose, but I just wanted it not to sound too mechanical,
because after all, it's just my fingers playing a piano keyboard with a
percussion kit making the sounds. The bongo is a little loud. I was
influenced by a recording I just got of Ahmad Jamal (piano, with
drummer, bass player and guitarist). The guitarist I believe played the
bongos on some of the pieces and I really liked it, so of course I
overdid it. :-)

It's a work in progress. Thank you very much Thorsten for your comments.
I'll try to whip the percussion track into shape (and be more awake for
the piano part after a good night's sleep--it's 3:00 a.m. where I live
in New Mexico US).
