‘The New Jazz Cafe’ at BandCamp

Reggies-In-Suit-W-Guitar-004_designed-combo_640-x-124--for-slider-for-mobile-bandcamp

New player, no limits at BandCamp

Until now you could only listen to samples of my songs before you buy them online through iTunes or CDBaby or something like that.  While those services are still there, I want my people to have as many options as possible when hearing my music.  I recently got ‘The New Jazz Cafe’ up at BandCamp – seen above in the embedded player.  The player permanently installed over on the right has been updated to a BandCamp player, too.

What this means is you can listen to any song on the album in entirety for free.  Yep.  If you like my music, if you want to support jazz, if you want to support independent music, I still encourage you to buy your favorite songs or the whole album.  If you buy the whole album, it’s a huge bargain, and you get extras found no where else, including PDFs of artwork and the CD booklet, a music video, and more.

I hope you enjoy my music.  Please peruse BandCamp additionally as it is full of amazing, courageous music worth exploring; worth enjoying.

New ‘Sing Allelujah / El Shaddai’ Music Video

Sing-Allelujah-Cover-Pic

Here’s the new music video for my song, ‘Sing Allelujah / El Shaddai’. It’s a meditative medley from my new album, made all the more evocative by a gorgeous flute performance a la my good friend George Wilkins.

I hope you enjoy what I found to be a stunning, yet calming video. Subscribe or comment if you dig it, please! :)

The New Jazz Cafe

Finally, my new album is out — for sale online!  It’s the culmination of years of hard work, and collaboration with many talented friends and professionals.  It’s such a joy for it to be done at last, so I hope all of you check it out in one form or another.

Here’s the first track from the album: an original of mine featuring Rev. Al Lewis on sax. Enjoy :)

 

You can get the album — or individual songs, of course — from this very website, CD Baby, or you can reach out to me via the contact page and get it from me personally.  Soon, it will appear on iTunes, Amazon, Napster, eMusic, and more online retailers for your convenience.

Thanks again, so much, to everyone who helped bring this album to life.  I hope you enjoy it!
