  • MUSIC COMPOSITION UPDATE: 159 new works for solo piano written and performed in the last 6 months for live stream concerts and recordings +

    I've composed, arranged and performed a total of 159 new original compositions for solo piano during this last six-month period. Scroll down this blog entry to view the database of new pieces created for performance during 21 live stream concerts ("The Listening Experience"), listed by date, concert theme and composition title. Last week's detailed blog article AT THIS LINK tells the story of my 25 consecutive live stream concert events with in-depth information. These compositions are also listed on my Live Stream Page, featured in the song set list for each live stream concert in a gallery of text panels you can scroll through on the bottom of the live stream page. There is no way this level of creativity could have occured without the universal inspiration from George Russell (my composition mentor) and his enduring, prodigious Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization, for which I am eternally grateful.

  • Music Documentary Film Review: "Hearing Is Believing" - Rachel Flowers +

    Although released as a full-length documentary film in 2017, I had not had the opportunity to see this movie until this week. Let me begin by saying that it is a very important film for everyone to enjoy and learn from, especially musicians. The focus is on Rachel Flowers. She is what a real musician looks like - in every way, shape and form. Her essence is one of purity. That's what this film means to me: music is purity. The purity of her soul made me cry tears of joy at the end of the film. She hears a sound in everything and in everyone. The title says it all. More than the familiar motto "seeing is believing," the truth is that "hearing is believing." This is in perfect alignment with my axiom that music is a gift given to all human beings to teach us to become better listeners. Read More

Please make an online donation (any amount you wish) on the day of the concert by clicking the secure “Virtual Tip Jar” donation button link on the live stream page while you are watching the concert. 100% of your donation will go to providing the much appreciated assistance to this important long-running local community oriented institution which provides a unique and valuable service to northwestern New Jersey.

It was an honor to be invited to join the Board of Directors of the Food Coop in 2019. We had planned a live, in-person concert for last June, which was cancelled due to the public health crisis. Now that I've given over 20 weekly livestream concerts, we thought it might be nice to offer something virtual to bring people together and show our support for the Food Coop. It's a place where very loving, hard-working and dedicated people have been bringing healthy, organic food and earth-friendly, affordable products to the northwestern New Jersey area community for the last 40 years.

Here's a short description of the Sussex County Food Coop, from their website:

Originally formed as a buying club in the 1970s, the present co-op was established in 1980 as a not-for-profit natural foods consumer cooperative with a brick-and-mortar retail store open to the public.Our patrons include about 300 member households plus members of the public residing in surrounding counties in New York state and Pennsylvania as well as nearby areas of New Jersey.

SCFC members have been working together for more than thirty years to supply themselves and their neighbors with access to high quality natural and organic foods, including locally-produced foodstuffs. Among other items, SCFC offers locally-grown produce in season, honey, eggs, chicken, and seasonal baked goods. Handmade pottery and textile crafts from local artisans are also for sale.

Many of our members and patrons have special dietary needs. Our shelves are stocked with specialty foods free of dairy, gluten, wheat, soy, tree nuts, and other allergens. In addition to food and personal care products for humans of all ages, SCFC also offers pet food for cats and dogs.
