New Song to Download! - May 24, 2010

 

 

I came across an old recording I did back in the 90's, a pop/gospel version of "What A Wonderful World." I decided to put it up on I-tunes, Rhapsody, and all the other major music download websites. I think it's a really fun version of the tune - so go check it out and let me know what you think! Only 99 cents...!

Some funny jazz haikus - March 25, 2007

I just read these haikus in my Berklee alumni magazine and they cracked me up... so I thought I'd share a few:

 

Free jazz temptation Strikes during the bride's first dance What would Wynton do?

 

Best Man pays sideman Leader's greediness revealed Rebellion ensues

 

Riffing on "Rudolph" Musicians in red and green Learn humility

 

Break time is over Rest of band is returning Now for that phone call

 

I'm sending a sub Not to worry, he'll be fine He's fresh out of rehab

 

 

Great Quote! - November 14, 2006

 

"I hate straight singing. I have to change a tune to my own way of doing it. That's all I know." -- Billie Holiday
