Thanksgiving Medley release TODAY!

I have a new single available on all platforms today! Here it is on YouTube: It was fun to arrange these two hymns – one traditional Dutch and one by English organist George Job Elvey (1816-1893) – for solo piano. I think they work SO well together and hope they will be a welcome companion […]

Happy Birthday, Dear Olde Dadd!

Meet my parents, Carley and Jim. That’s us in the photo above, striking a pose at the conclusion of the release concert for my album Thankful Heart, Joyful Mind. My arrangement of the great Irving Berlin tune White Christmas – which just happens to be my mom’s favorite Christmas song – appears on the album and is dedicated […]

Turning Sixty

I kicked off my 60th birthday week with my parents and youngest son yesterday. I made all our family favorites for Sunday dinner – pulled pork loin, cheesy potatoes, and green beans with bacon – and afterwards there was cake, ice cream, and presents followed by a fiercely competitive game of Uno. (In typical fashion, […]

Sedona Adventures, Part 1

My flight to Phoenix on Tuesday was blissfully uneventful. I picked up my rental car and made the two-hour drive to Sedona, arriving about 6:30 at the beautiful Arabella Hotel. I checked into my lovely room, took in the breathtaking view from my balcony, and walked next door to my favorite local restaurant, the Elote […]

GENTLEMAN BAILEY by Darla Bower

Gentleman Bailey was written in memory of composer and pianist Darla Bower’s faithful canine companion Bailey, who succumbed to illness in December, 2018. It is a fitting tribute to “the sweetest and gentlest dog” Bower ever owned. The plaintive melodic theme, played in the deep lower register of the piano, alternates with a short section […]

NOTTE by Milana Zilnik

Milana Zilnik is no shrinking violet. According to her website, “soulful singing and complex piano melodies are [her] signature, but she embraces a variety of styles – everything from folk, blues, opera and Middle Eastern, to her soft spots for rock and jazz.” Now, in her latest album, Notte (release date June 1, 2019), she […]

Happy Birthday, Mackenzie

She was born May 4, 1994 with an extremely rare genetic condition called Trisomy 13, meaning she had three copies of chromosome 13 in each cell of her body instead of the normal two copies. This disrupts the normal course of development and causes the associated […]
