Island Path

These beautiful songs from the Caribbean are rhythmic and exciting. The music will surely make you move your feet and make you want to dance. You will even hum and maybe put your thoughts of words to your singing. It is great music to listen to in your car or boat.

We all need music to keep us carefree and happy for the rest of our lives so that we stay “Positive, Happy, and Giving.”

Island Solitude

This CD represents Caribbean music and many of the coastal countries in South America, Atlantic side. The music makes me remember sailing through the Caribbean and enjoying the music from the islands. Folks who listen to this music also recognize the styles and smile about past experiences from the Caribbean.

Island Waves

To me, there is no music that compares to that from the Caribbean. There is no way I can sit it out and just watch. My feet start moving and I invite my partner to come dance with me.

Dreams come from these episodes that you remember for the rest of your life. If you have not experienced this, you really have to give it a try. You won’t regret it.

Island Serenity

This  CD  is  very  interesting  because  of  its  many  styles  of  popular  music  of  the  Caribbean.    Even  in  the  musical  introduction,  the  songs  very  quickly  get  to  the  main  theme.    This  allows  them  to  be  a  bit  shorter,  but  very  specific.  This  made  me  very  excited  and  enthused  about  composing  and  arranging  each  song.    You  will  enjoy  the  beauty  and  excitement  as  well.

Purple Clouds

This beautiful music comes from a lot of great memories while sailing around the Caribbean.  The song sounds reflect the wonderful and rhythmic feelings of the folks who live in these places.  We would have interesting discussions long after the bars were closed, because we felt the same way about many things.  It was very difficult to sail away.

Great Feelings

These songs brought out their “beauty” very quickly, so their time lengths are a bit shorter than usual. The orchestra background music is filled with unusual effects and sounds of nature. The solo instruments change back and forth, and all of these effects end up providing extraordinary sounds and beautiful music. The rhythm instruments are also providing special sounds.

All of these things brought together provide exceptional music.

Enjoy!

Island Voyages

The variation in times from memories of long ago to today’s music is really noticeable and highly appreciated in this wonderful CD.

I had so much pleasure remembering the great sailing trips to the Bahamas and through various parts of the Caribbean. These territories and islands have vastly different styles of music.

This CD is a very interesting variation in music.

Island Morning Glow

This CD stretches out the areas from which the music styles come to much further than just the Caribbean. However, these far-away styles of music seem to fit nicely. The primary reason is the rhythms are exciting as well.

I’m very happy with the results, especially for how well they fit together and actually enhance each other. After listening to this CD, I feel happy and excited. I hope it has that effect on you.

The cover art is a painting by Dianna Willman, a well known artist who lives on Pine Island. Dianna is known for capturing the landscape in all its majesty. This scene depicts a beautiful morning on Pine Island.

Island Sunrise

I love to compose and arrange these styles of music. The beauty and power of the oceans surrounding small fragile lands are slowly disappearing. So, we had better enjoy these beautiful places and friendly people before they are gone, and hopefully moved on to higher grounds.

Knowing that all this is slowly but steadily happening causes my music (even though it is happy) to bring tears to my eyes when I put the songs together.

Please enjoy and dream and hope for the best.

Island Thoughts

My experiences in the Caribbean sailing on beautiful waters or enjoying exciting music on shore will never leave me. Composing music from these experiences always takes me back there. Now, when I am composing and arranging the music while looking outside you can tell where my mind is. It is obvious the music is reflecting where the source of the rhythms and feelings come from.

This is mostly from deep feelings from living and loving an exciting and beautiful past. I hope you have these feelings from your past so that you can keep enjoying life.

Island Painted Ladies

It is difficult to understand how all these different styles of music sound so good with each other. When I put this music together, I must have woven many common feelings into each song. I guess it doesn’t matter what caused it because they turned out great.
Enjoy and dream of a positive and happy life!

The cover for this CD is a photo taken by our dear friends, Brian and Nilda, as they watched a tiny frog travel up the leaves of their guava tree.  Track 03 is the song named for this tiny island dweller.

Please listen and enjoy.

Island Jazz

The music of this CD makes you happy and want to move.  I really had great fun and enthusiasm while composing and arranging these songs.  I wanted to take my time putting these songs together, but I couldn’t slow down.  I was almost dancing while putting this CD together.  When you listen to this music you will understand what I mean.  Enjoy!

Please listen and enjoy.

Island Sunset

This CD is very unique in that it is comprised of Caribbean and New Orleans styles. These places had a close relationship because of their ties to supplies via the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Seas. People could more easily travel back and forth, which further tied these places together … musically and commercially.
 

For me, there is a wonderful correlation between the musical styles. Enjoy!

Island Tides

This CD is another example of the beautiful music of the Caribbean and surrounding territories such as Brazil.  The music came to the Caribbean via the people who moved there from Greece, Spain and other European and African nations who brought their music with them.  The Islands expanded this music into happy and very rhythmic songs with beautiful expressiveness.  One has to have a feeling of happiness and the desire to dance when listening to their beautiful music.  

Please listen and enjoy.

You will end up dancing to these songs. The rhythms and background musical variations during the songs will not let you just sit and listen.
