Final version of the A Segment after today's edits.

NOTES:

-Uses flute from 'Joshee' under Sam instead of live recording... seems a bit too 'busy' - can you possibly send quiter solo flute or suggest where I might find some?

-Uses 'When Tene' Dances' under the intro to Brother Blue. See what you think.

-How is the repeated use of 'Wisdom is' working for you - anywhere you want it? don't want it?
