Here, you can download for free my original jazz influenced compositions.
The only song from the early cassette days I'm including here. A melodic waltz featuring acoustic piano and vibe solos.
No doubt about it; America truly is the Pez Nation.
One Good Turn
I was eating some chocolate covered pretzels and, well, things got out of hand. Next thing I know this piano tune, sometimes graceful, sometimes zippy, was ready for shipping.
Poco A Poco
Spanish for "little by little" reflecting the short horn phrases, and how anything worthwhile is accomplished. Geetar 'n sax!
The Next Time
Smooth jazz guitar tune with a funky clavinet groove to soothe your funk bone.
(Remixed, 4/14/06.) Formerly #1 in the Jazz category at amp3.com! Upbeat Caribbeanesque melody. Dig those Salsa horns!
It Must Be Nice
Smooth as a velvet smoking jacket. Pour a martini and get in the mood. You'll be whistling this tune with amorous intent. Expect vibe and upright bass solos.
A moody piece featuring acoustic piano and nylon string guitar, evoking images of contrast.
Smooth jazz format with a kick, featuring guitar a la solo and roasted piano, smothered with a spicy hot groove sauce.
All The Marbles
This one pounds the pavement, and the contestants are playing for keeps! An instrumental rocker, not jazz.
Inspired by the cool casual attire of the Love Boat crew. As you listen, just try not to think about Dr. Adam Bricker's shorts.
Stranger In TV Land
As you surf through the channels, don't be surprised if a guitar distortionist leaps onto the screen and tries to show off a little. Remember, you're in control! Zap! HAHAHA!
It's all a matter of perspective, you know?
Move The Mountain
Have a little faith!
Say, that's some mighty fancy footwork there, soldier...
Spelled with two a's so you know it's extra tricky!
Not terribly un-Chet like, with nylon string guitar and a jazz break right out of the text books.
Translation: happy tune! 11/16/08
If you could layer stratocasters into a casserole, it might taste or sound something like this. 7/31/10
The Happy Plunderer
Hopefully, the first of a "Firesign Suite". Look it up. 1/6/11
Sailing in Dreams
Oooh, "Sailing in Dreams", la dee da. This better send me...
Not too much blues, just the right amount of Mulberry goodness! Added 7/14/13
More or Less
The wife commented, "Haven't you already written that?" *Sigh* Hence the name... Added 10/7/18
At a rehearsal many years ago, I proposed adding a modulation to a blues filler tune. I was met with stares that ranged from
incredulity to disdain. Added 12/13/19
