The Reckoning of Robert

A Soundtrack based on Robert's view of what life can be like

Dedications

Generally, i'd like to dedicate this soundtrack to those who have stuck by my side through all of my good and bad. Also, those who are nothing but good memories now. And finally to all of those with their own reckoning as to what life is like. It's ups and downs, highs and lows. About the things that make us happy as humans. It's both a beautiful yet vile, to an extent. One way or another though, we see it through.

"Atrophy" by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (3:17)

Atrophy is when something loses it's effect due to neglect. This song encourages me to build myself up, so that I do not atrophy.

"Another Year" by Animals as Leaders (3:50)

"Jazzy Interlude" by Billy Munn (2:49)

As a jazz musician, this is one of my favorite tunes, and I could only dream of getting the chance to play it with a really talented jazz combo. And those trombone solos though!
