Ode to a Tyrant

It’s striking that authoritarians seem to lack a sense of humor, while freedom embraces it.

The Birdbath

Birds are descended from a group of dinosaurs which included T Rex. With such an impressive pedigree, one must always look one’s best.

Set to “The Birdbath” and “Counterplay”.

The Quantum Mechanical Blues

Is this what “Many Worlds” looks like? Not really, but hey.

I wrote this for a singing course at a blues festival. The instructor was very puzzled, but the pianist liked it…

Shards of Morning

I usually write songs starting with just a feeling and a few chords, and then it pretty much goes its own way.

The larger keyboard is split into piano in the lower octaves, and piano + strings in the higher, and the smaller keyboard added more strings.
