I've updated my LISTEN section - I categorized the three sections, including the new POP/ROCK category. I've been working on developing my skill set on guitar, bass, and piano during COVID, not to mention wanting to acquire more experience working in Logic Pro. So, for your listening pleasure/torture, I uploaded recent arrangements of songs from two of my favorite pop and rock bands. I'm playing every instrument, singing all the parts (be kind...), and I programmed the drums, as well. In the JAZZ section, I've included a preview of my NEW album, which will come out in a couple of months.
Why pop and rock? First, I love it. I grew up with it, and it's a style I've always performed. Second, I teach my students the importance of versatility in developing a sustainable career in music, and I want to show them that I practice what I preach. Third, I've never been a purist. I love music, whatever that means. Duke Ellington said there are two types of music: good music, and the other kind. Good music is transcendent. And, 'good' is in the eye of the beholder.
I hope you enjoy listening to the new music as much as I enjoyed working on it. More later!
