                All this talk about favorite waltes, and I am prompted to
"unlurk" and wonder why no one has mentioned my favorite.  It's the old
Mexican waltz "Over the Waves".  All of us are familiar with it as played by
George Lewis, copied by Monty Sunshine, Mick Lewis, Sammy Remmington, et al.
It's probably played more by jazz bands than any other waltz adaptable to
4/4 time.
