I very much enjoyed reading your review of Russell Malone's latest release. Just curious... but how do you interpret "Heartstrings" starting at a "breakneck spee." Are you confusing that description to another track on the album? "Heartstrings" is very much a ballad from beginning to end.

Michael,You said, "Let's hope that Volume Two is not far behind."Well, just nine months later, it is here.It would be great to read a another Russell Malone review from you!Kandie Webster in Washington State -- AAJ
Dear Kandie Webster:Thank you for your kind corrections. I guess I never realized that people are reading. I really do not know what I was thinking about when I wrote the note on "Heartstrings." I will correct it.Michael
Kandie Webster:What a cool name you have. I am reviewing the volume two disc today.Michael
Hi Michael,I read your review the day it was published. Thank you. It is posted as a link on Russell's musician profile page, of course.Thanks for the nice compliment about my name.Kandie Le Britain Webster ~~ jazzylover59 in most places!
I just now noticed your reply to my comment here. Did you ever make that "correction?" It still looks the same (I think).

Kandie:I am finally learning to use the comments section of our website. I looked at the article and it looks like I changed "spee" to "pace." I have slept since then and must have changed it in a dream.
Hi again, Michael,Good to hear from you here again. Thanks for the kind consideration. There is no notification system set up yet, so I did not know that you replied. Michael said it will be coming at some point. Every other web site I am a member of notifies me of every little thing, which can be annoying at times.That very first comment I left way back on 11-23-2006, was left under my old/duplicate AAJ member account attached to a different email address. When I became a profile editor, I asked Michael to delete that one. That is why I cannot correct my typo (spee)!!! Oh well... have you checked out Russell Malone's profile page here at AAJ? He was my first. I used parts of yours and Victor Vierney's reviews in the Biography section. Thank you for your wonderful writing.I also used what you wrote for Live At (The) Jazz Standard Volume 2 in the "Press Quotes" section. Thank you for that as well. I look forward to reading more from you. If you click on my name at the end of Russell's page, you will read a bit about how I met him and other jazz artists in the past two years.I sense you have a good sense of humor...so with that in mind, I still do not think that "Heartstrings" starts out at a breakneck "pace" or "speed." I actually get a sexy and romantic feeling listening to it. So my original comment is still out there. ;-)Jazzy Cheers,Kandie Le Britain Webster ~~ AAJ Profile Editor
