I recorded this killer waltz in 2005 on Journey to the Heartland. Nearly 20 years later, it is still one of my favorite waltzes! The piece offers a case study how to use chord substitutions. This is a challenging piece featuring a pile of chords including secondary dominants, diminished 7ths, major 7ths, circle of fifths chord movement, and more.
