Upcoming Release: Songs from the Ambient Field

I confess. I’ve been struggling with this latest project in many ways.

1. I want this to be a dark ambient album, and I’ve been struggling with themes and motifs.

I have a beautiful Yamaha Grand Piano which desperately needs tuning, but with the new Logic Pro X, I’m actually VERY impressed with the selections of sampled grand pianos, from Bosendorfer to Steinway to Yamaha, I must admit these pianos sound awesome, so there’s no need to mic a real grand piano (which can be extremely difficult to do.

One Man Jazz Trio!

Setup: One Man Jazz Trio

I’ve been busiest performing solo gigs with the concept of the One Man Jazz Trio. For the most part, I’m doing private events and developing this concept further at the same time.

I wanted to point out that this One Man Jazz Trio concept is all done in ‘real time’. In other words, no backing tracks or software is used.
