The new CD "J.A.M." is available here.

More Recent Stuff - 2009

The Serpent

(E maj improv over electronic groove loop I created. I am so FLY.)

Prelude In F Major

Short piece for cello in Baroque style. Uses cello samples from Reason 2.0.


I have material for an acoustic CD, I started recording but am unable to get a decent tone. Probably need a condensor mike. This is just the first part of a couple tunes I've written. Hopefully I'll do this CD after the instrumental one. But with kickass tone and no white noise.
