ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Original Instrumental Music.. Improvised Compositions..
The best way to describe my music instead of jazz or classical or pop or ambient,
although all the elements of those are here.
So in advance I thank you for taking the time to listen and read !

A bit about myself…
Primarily piano-keyboards, I love writing and recording my own Original instrumental Music.
My Music has received airplay in a wide scope of media including Public Radio & TV,
The Weather Channel was a biggie for me, Video, Film (a little but still film !), Documentary, Cable and more.

About this album..
Love Songs For Quiet Nights is my idea of what a quiet evening spent with your favorite people on earth should sound like. Romantic, introspective, soothing, living music recorded over the past few years in a broad spectrum of formats including sessions in studio on a Nine Foot Baldwin Concert Grand, a Seven Foot Yamaha Grand and in my studio using state of the art in acoustically sampled instruments. But don't take my word for it, listen to the clips yourself ! Most of the music on this album is played solo on just one instrument or instrument sample. However on three of the compositions I use an undercurrent of soft ethereal pads which I programmed just to add a bit of depth and color to the music.

Think Chopin, Metheny, Hornsby, Corea , Mays, Scriabin, Evans, Segovia, Gabriel, Sting, Zawinul, Rachmaninoff, & Folds !
So diverse musically but in common they share and advanced melodic and harmonic insight which I've tried to capture in my own compositions and playing ( let me state I'm not comparing myself to these musical giants at all ! ), but without question there is a vibe and influence which I'm sure you'll notice.

My request to you... turn off the TV, open a bottle of your favorite vintage, invite your friends over, rock your Grandchild, share the music with your love, invite peace, tranquility and love into your life... and live.

A little holistic ?? Why Not ! A little too optimistic in the world ? Why Not !! A little too romantic ?? Why Not !!

As I mentioned earlier, a few of the pieces were recorded a while back and released individually on
my earlier albums, and this is the first time they are presented in their entirety. Such as the At Night Series.
I-VII in no particular order, they represent different vibes and times while looking for the same thing.
The peace that night can bring.

Other information on myself and my music is available at my website where you may visit, listen and watch at your convenience including the capability to stream unreleased music.

Thanks for purchasing Love Songs For Quiet Nights.. Hope you enjoy !
