Five Stones

from Cello Noodles, Vol. IV by Betsy Tinney

subscriber exclusive


So, this piece might or might not be a hypercaffeinated ode to one of my favorite little coffee shops: 5 Stones Coffeehouse in Redmond. Or, it might just be a rockin' piece in 5/4 time. More likely, it's both.

After a pretty hypercaffeinated summer here, things are starting to settle down a bit. Sunnie's and Leslie's albums and local release concerts are complete; and Music Under the Trees 2019 is also over (thank heavens, as it was a huuuge amount of work to produce; but wow, it sure was fun in the moment!).

And now, as August winds down, I've actually got time to sit outside that small local coffee shop, sipping a beautifully-embellished latte and catching any Pokemon that foolishly spawn within my reach... with caffeine-powered cello riffs playing in my head.
