Story

 It's been a tradition on my albums to end with a reprise version of an earlier track. This time I started with a short accordion-only version of "October Waltz". I was going to leave it at that, but when John Catchings came over to overdub cello on the other pieces, I let him have a go at this one. He added a whole new dimension to it. I then called on muliti-instrumentalist Jim Hoke to add clarinet, one of my favorite instruments. Things took an unexpected twist when Jim started playing some jazz-flavored glissandos to get to the high notes. It makes me think of early Duke Ellington, film-noir, and Woody Allen movies. It turned out to be one of the more interesting tracks on the album, and a fitting way to end it.
