Creation

Creation

For many years I have been listening to the great composers from the past. You will undoubtedly hear strong influences from many of my favorites, most notably Ravel, as well as the Bach family, and many others. Creation is my most personally satisfying recording to date. It is my hope that this music will take the listener to a place of appreciation and gratitude for a loving God who has a plan and purpose for each of us regardless of our station in life.

Pilgrim

Pilgrim

I am extremely pleased to announce the release of a brand new CD called Pilgrim. It contains 12 vocal renditions and fresh arrangements of my favorite hymns, psalms and spiritual songs. It was my goal to produce a body of music that might bring hope and peace to the listener in an inspirational setting. The accompaniment ranges from solo guitar and concert harp to string quartet and orchestra.

Retrospective

These twelve instrumental tracks meet the musical criteria of the many alternative and smooth jazz radio stations throughout the world. This compilation was born out of requests from my friends in radio and contains many of my personal favorites that I have recorded over the past thirty years.

Eclecticity

Eclecticity

New CD release (2002).  After a nearly twelve year departure from recording, Eclecticity was my first project.  While listening to the recording for the first time in eight years with a very talented piano player friend of mine, the question was asked "why is this not available?".  The only reason I could give was "I suppose because it is not commercial in the least".  My friend stated, "who cares, it needs to be heard".  I believe my love for the creative process is more apparant here than perhaps at any time during my career.  It draws on many influences from over three decades of playing and listening.

The Mystery Of Love

Mystery Of Love

New CD release (2002), consisting of 5 vocal and 5 instrumental tracks, an eclectic mix of funky hooks, jazz fusion, Spanish acoustic guitar and ethnic influences.  "I feel it is my best work to date, a true culmination of all my musical influences over the years".

"While the lyrics reflect the perfect love between a man and woman, they also have a deeper spiritual significance, God's immense love of mankind and hopefully our reciprocal love to the creator".

Second Wind

Second Wind

Released in 1997 after a 12 year complete departure from music, which time will not allow me to go into now, I felt the call to once again explore the gift of music I had been given.  This brought about my first recording in 17 years.  Second Wind is a jazz fusion project with some surprises here and there.  It is mostly instrumental.  Jazziz Magazine chose the cut "Peaks" as one of the winners of their "Guitars on Fire" contest held in the late 90's.  If you like jazz guitar you will appreciate this CD.

Enter In

Enter In

Recorded and released in 1980.  Again the same musical style as Waiting For The Rain but perhaps more thought provoking lyrically in it's content.  While contemporary Christian music was still developing in the marketplace this album was quite unusual because it had a strong jazz style compared to the pop rock styles of that time.  It was never the less warmly embraced by the more musically sophisticated listeners.

Waiting For The Rain

Waiting For The Rain

Recorded and released in 1978.  While the music was still very much R&B jazz fusion the lyrics boldly reflected my newfound Christian conversion while staying in Hawaii.  It shipped world wide because of Space Traveler's success and I received hundreds of letters in support of this record,  which had crossed over with a message in secular music that was unprecedented.  A year or so later Bob Dylan came out with an album called Saved, which became the second such record.

Space Traveler

Space Traveler

Recorded in 1975 and released in 1976.  Definitely my most commercially successful project.  The single hit the top forty in several markets with no touring support.  It was said that if the release had been a year later with the "Star Wars" movie being released, it would have been a possible number 1 hit.  R&B jazz fusion would best describe the style. I was at the time on an extended visit to Kauai,  Hawaii that turned into almost a year visit, to the complete frustration of my label and management.  If you like the funky sounds of the mid seventies you should love this record.

Culmination

Culmination

Recorded in the winter of 1971 but not released until 1974.  It is almost entirely instrumental,  featuring many renowned musicians of the day,   and it is appreciated by the more eclectic listeners of music.  To say that much of the music is experimental would be an understatement.   I almost fell over when a Washington Post music critic called it the "most creative album since Sergeant Pepper".  It has no musical similarities to the Beatles;  that is for sure.  Vinyl copies are going over the web for as much as $75 if you can find them.
