Metanioa Release with Tim Jones

Well, this fall I’ve been tossing ideas back and forth with the illustrious trumpeter Tim Jones, from my old stomping ground in Denver, CO.  Tim plays with the Colorado Jazz Workshop and gigs locally with a variety of big band groups in the Denver metro area.  We thought we’d try messing his trumpet skills with my electronics and see what happened.  We came up with Metanioa, meaning a change of heart.

As you know all of my music is an autobiography of my life. This is no different.  I have had numerous changes of the heart in the past two years since I released my last album, and on a variety of subjects.  I’ve thought of leaving music all together too.  But alas, it draws me back in and so I’m still here.  Silent most of the time, but the silence has to learn how to be played as well, we musicians know that.

Enjoy.

Dreamtime Collection Releases

I’ve put together an album, rereleasing some of the tracks I love that I feel are perfect for an album that helps put you to sleep.  I’m calling it the Dreamtime Collection.  On it you’ll find tracks like Asleep Next to You, Entering the Shell and Falling.  While it could be argued that most of my music could put you to sleep, these tracks have been put together with that purpose in mind.  The plan is to have several editions of the Dreamtime Collection, volumes, that include new material.  This is the new project.  Dreamtime Collection.  We’ll see how many volumes we come up with.  Enjoy!
