I have played in Blues Bands, Rock Bands, Country Bands, Latin Bands, Jazz Bands, Cajun bands, Folk Groups and Big Bands.
Therefore, the music I write sort of absorbs all these flavors. I keep wanting to get into a studio to do my stuff but have never found the family.
Here is a sampling.
The rockers say it’s jazz and the jazzers say it’s rock. I say, it’s music. D.C. Duncan is the drummer on all of these tunes. Bob Hemminger is on the sax.
This is a folk song I wrote. I tried acting and playing at the same time. This next is a Folk song. I wanted it to sound real and in the moment–sort of hard to do when you are playing all the parts.
This is a country tune I wrote. Johnny Oakly is on the steel guitar. I was in a doctors office and got to talking with a gentleman from Sicily. These were his words and sentiments. i just went home and put them to music.
Another country tune. I was driving down the highway in the middle of the night thinking about the boy I should have married a long time ago and this song came to me. With advent of computer and after my divorce, I looked him up. I found him. He’s married so I’ll never know whether he thinks of me or not because I never did give him a call.
