Various selections from all of my solo CD releases to date can be streamed here.  Enjoy.  It will quite literally be my $0.02 thanks to the way streaming revenues finally make their way to me, but I thank you for listening all the same!  Lots more music to come...

I don't often rant.  But when I do, I prefer to do so through song.  Stay happy my friends.

This Friday (7/17 @7:30pm) I'll be joining Halie Loren and band at the Wildish Theater in Springfield, Oregon  for the North American release of her latest CD "Butterfly Blue".  The band will actually be an extended ensemble of everyone who played on the CD!  It should make for a great night of music and will be a lot of fun!

Tickets: $15 adv / $18 day-of

Just an FYI, my Virtual Trumpet software is no longer available (either the legacy Windows App or the RIA Web version).  Sorry folks!  Virtual Trumpet has always been one of my most popular attractions - most of my web metrics indicate that it was a big draw but the "audience" for Virtual Trumpet is a different one from the world of songwriting, composing, arranging and producing.  Making and performing real music is my passion.  I'm a techie in many ways, but the Virtual Trumpet software had a good run and I don't want it to be a distraction to my other musical pursuits.  Maybe someday I'll revisit this concept (I've written many incarnations of the Virtual Trumpet) but for now I'm concentrating on "real" musical projects, however unpopular that may be in this day and age!  Happy music making everyone!  Keepin' it real...

I have found copy.com's free cloud storage very useful for music projects, music scores and sharing files.  Check it out - 15gb free - plus (shameless self-interest here) you can get an extra 5gb free if you sign up with my referral link:  https://copy.com?r=l0Y7aA
