Is it August yet?


Is it August yet? is a new arrangement of an old piece. The title comes from something my eldest son said when he was very young. His birthday is in August so every month he would ask, Is it August yet?'.This seemed quite a Zen-like statement in the deep of winter! In the original I tried to combine the lyricism of a lush summer with a childlike happy groove influenced by South African music. In this new arrangement the piece has grown up, but hopefully without losing any of these qualities.
