~ * Toby's Keyboard Tones * ~

Toby was an gentle, elderly fellow who would set up his keyboard at local flea markets, festivals and fairs. His repertoire was old standards.
He often had other older folks who would ask him if he had any recordings for sale. Referred to me by the owner of the local music shop,
I recorded several CDs and tapes for him to sell and threw together some generic, computer-generated artwork for each compilation.

Although I was familiar with most of his selections, this clearly wasn't my type of music. However, Toby was such a nice, pleasant man who was truely so passionate about his music that it was hard to not gain a certain appreciation and affinity for his keyboard tones.

I have not heard from him in several years and suspect he might have passed on. He won't be forgotten.
