Island Seaside

This incredibly exciting CD is filled with beautiful and very rhythmic Caribbean songs. When you listen to this music, you will be happy and want to go there and experience the colorful and beautiful waters. The people are happy and excited to see you and will try hard to please you.

When I was composing and arranging the music for this CD I was in great moods while imagining myself on a Caribbean Island enjoying the beauty of the area.

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!

Island Life

There is no doubt this music is a reflection of  Caribbean music.  The music  comes from all sides of the beautiful Caribbean waters.  It will eventually make you dream and scheme about traveling there and experiencing all these beautiful sounds.  Keep dreaming!

 

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 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.
