Shades of Umber

I really like the song. Has a Chicago vibe (and I mean Chicago before David Foster turned it into a blah top 40 ballad band). Any other known performance besides Montreux? Anyone heard a studio version?

I've loved this song since hearing the clip from Montreux and I was hoping that he would release a studio version. My dad loves it and said it reminds him of some of Stan Kenton's work from the 70's. Rumeta is in the same vein to me,though I'm uncertain if it was intended to be an instrumental. I was wondering if both were for a planned release.

Probably not, but who knows. They were done about 3 years apart, and Pangaea was Eryn Allen Kane's song. I believe she wasn't totally on board with the direction he was taking it, so just gave it to him to mess around with.
