I currently have two CDs to my credit. They are currently being re-pressed, and new projects are also in the works. Stay tuned for more information, as well as my new online store, coming soon!
Style & Repertoire
On the theatre organ and piano, my specialty has largely been the music of the Great American Songbook. I collect old piano/vocal music and vintage recordings of great pianists, vocalists, dance bands, and Broadway cast recordings. My style is ever-evolving, but I tend to explore period styles while incorporating jazz and blues influences. The wonderful advantage of being a strong improviser is the ability to try several treatments to any particular song before deciding how to arrange it for performance.
My musical idols have always been the composers of great music. Whether it be George Gershwin or Rachmaninoff, the composers are the stars to me. In addition to performing their music, I absolutely love to write my own music. To create something completely new is extremely rewarding. I often improvise “from scratch,” keeping the best musical “thoughts” and building a new composition based around them.
So far, I’ve written pieces ranging in style from romantic orchestral works for organ to light music and popular songs. Here is a sample of my first “Rhapsody,” recorded on the 4/60 Wurlitzer/Composite organ in the Aveni Mansion in Cleveland.
