About the Music

There always was a piano in the house when I was growing up. My father played, standards mostly, from the 1930’s and 40’s. I guess I showed some interest because when I was 10 years old or so, I recall a man with a pipe and a metronome sitting next to me at the piano. Three blind mice. Three blind mice. That’s when I found out I didn’t like much to practice. I still don’t. So the lessons didn’t last long. That was the extent of my formal training. But it was helpful in that I learned that I liked to play. So over the ensuing years I would play, just improvise. In doing so I found that things just came to me. Melodies, chords. The illusive next note.

Sometimes the music came to me all wrapped up in a pretty bow. Other times, a little rough around the edges, in need of some cleaning up. Some direction. But it always came. I did not strive to create or craft much of anything. I was merely the vessel. Hence this collection of songs I could only think to call “Conversations with the Creator” because I can’t explain it any other way. A higher musical force.

All these songs are my musical children, snapshots caught in a moment of time. I never play them the same way twice. Or, as the jazz guys say, I never play them the same way once! I hear the little imperfections in the renderings, my playing of what I hear inside is limited by my ‘chops’ which are average at best. But more importantly, I hear beautiful music. My gift. My ego comes into play only when I hope you like it. I’m working on that!
