Diem in Monimentum

“Diem in Monimentum” marks my return to Smooth Jazz. I’m not sure how long this return will last.

You Must Be

“You Must Be” is an experiment. Having just finished it, I’m not sure how I think it turned out. Perhaps you can let me know what you think.

The track is something of a mashup of several of my major influences: Smooth Jazz, Jazz Fusion, 80’s Pop Ballads, and Hank Marvin with the Shadows.

One World One Word

“One World One Word” is an original, instrumental smooth-jazz ballad. For many years, smooth jazz and fusion were the main styles in which I worked.  If you visit my artist page at CD Baby, you can see some of the albums I released over the years. You might also try my artist page on Spotify.

Chuloe

“Chuloe” is a rumination and tribute to jazz guitarist/composer/producer Chuck Loeb, who passed away from cancer earlier this week.

Although I don’t consider him a major influence on my own work, I was an enormous admirer of his. One of the hallmarks of his music — no matter his role — was a perfect balance of taste, clarity, and virtuosity.

I will miss him.

Smooth Shadow

“Smooth Shadow” is an original instrumental that combines two of the styles in which I work. The harmonic and rhythmic setting is like a smooth jazz or 80’s ballad, while the melody is a bit more simple…in a sixties guitar style similar to Hank Marvin of the Shadows.
