Blues and Ballads Album Blues and Ballads, my latest digital album, has been released at Bandcamp.  I consider blues and ballads to be two pillars of jazz. The originals in this collection explore both conventional and unconventional approaches to these genres. The 8-track album is $7. The music can be streamed (with the free Bandcamp app) or downloaded. As another option, individual recordings are $1 per track. Purchases help to fund new recordings of my originals.  My recent digital albums comprise a 6-volume collection with 45 recordings of my originals.  Each album has its own character, styles, and moods.   Here is a link to the album: Blues and Ballads   more

The music can be streamed (with the free Bandcamp app) or downloaded. As another option, individual recordings are $1 per track. Purchases help to fund new recordings of my originals.    Here is a link to the album: New Fiddle Music   more
Sambas and Bossa Novas Album A digital album of my original sambas and bossa novas -- and a tango thrown in for good measure --  has been released at Bandcamp.  The musical moods span contentment to get-up-and-dance exuberance...and lots in between.   The 7-track album is $7. The music can be streamed (with the free Bandcamp app) or downloaded. As another option, individual recordings are $1 per track. Purchases help to fund new recordings of my originals.    Here is a link to the album: Sambas, Bossa Novas, and a Tango   more
Mid-Size Jazz Ensemble Album A digital album of my original music for mid-size jazz ensemble has been released at Bandcamp.  I am a fan of the mid-size ensemble and the creative possibilities it offers. My vision for a mid-size ensemble is to use a woodwind quintet as a role model – that is, with each instrument having a distinct tone color – instead of thinking of it as a smaller version of a big band. This concept can be explored with either conventional or unconventional combinations of instruments. The ensemble can also have a level of flexibility and creative freedom that is usually associated with a small group. Stylistically, this music is eclectic...spanning American roots to avant-garde. ​ The 8-track album is $7. The music can be streamed (with the free Bandcamp app) or downloaded. As another option, individual recordings are $1 per track. Purchases help to fund new recordings of my originals.    Here is a link to the album:  Mid-Size Jazz Ensemble more
