a playlist of some of my music

I host a number of recordings on ReverbNation.com in order to share some of what I have composed. In the future I hope to post a lot more, but I have not always been consistent in recording my compositions.

Please note that I barely play the piano. As such, “Livingston at Deception” is a midi rendering using some really nice piano samples. The four-part composition “Mpho” is also a midi rendering using samples, though there is no piano in these pieces. “Mpho” is meant to include improvisation, so the recordings of these pieces are only a rough estimate of what the entire composition should sound like. read more

Grant Green Idle Moments – YouTube

This is how laid back the guitar should feel. Grant Green is an under-sung performer, and this is his most classic album. Everything, no matter the form, comes across as the blues. Beautiful behind-the-beat accompaniment throughout, and really lush and touching compositions.

Musicians: Grant Green (Guitar, Main Performer), Al Harewood (Drums), Bob Cranshaw (Bass), Bobby Hutcherson (Vibraphone), Duke Pearson (Liner Notes, Piano), Joe Henderson (Sax Tenor).

Tracklist: 1. Idle Moments 00:00, 2. Jean De Fleur 15:00, 3. Jean De Fleur (Alternate Version) 21:50, 4. Django 30:01, 5. Django (Alternate Version) 38:47, 6. Nomad 52:01. read more
