SUMMER'S UNFOLDING

Created in 1998 originally a gift for a friend, Summer’s Unfolding has had many  lives as an orchestral work, a duet for horn and piano, and solo piano piece. It’s combination of austere simplicity, lyricism and rich harmonies make it expressive in a natural way.

KIANNA TAYLOR

One of many soothing piano lullabies on my All The World Is Sleeping album from 2000. The compositions featuring names as titles were created as gifts for friends’ newborn children.

OLE BLACK EYES

As soon as I learned of the death of my friend and student, Otis, I went to the piano and wrote Ole Black Eyes — a name he used to refer to himself. In retrospect I was creating a lullaby capturing both his spirit and manner of playing the piano, as well as my grief.
