Happy New Year! I’ve just checked my Glover Gardens stats for 2016 and am proud to report that my most popular post last year was: A Little Music for a Sunday Evening. It includes a wonderful (free) recording of one of my son’s original tunes. He is a jazz composition major on scholarship at the University of Texas’ Butler School of Music and is writing new songs almost daily. Really. (My empty nest issues are all about the silence emanating from the piano and keyboards here at Glover Gardens.)
For your New Years and Sunday evening listening pleasure, I’m sharing my son’s first commercial release, The Madness Method. I know I’m biased, but I think this kid is going places. Let me know what you think if you download the album.
My son wrote, arranged, produced, recorded and performed all of the music, with the exception of a guest performance on one of the tunes by a young guitar player who is on scholarship at University of North Texas majoring in jazz studies, and who is also going places.
Watch this space! I’ll be sharing lots more original jazz (some of it free), and if my most popular post for this year turns out to be about my son’s music, that’s just fine with me. I am very much about my son and bonus son (who is a rocket test director for SpaceX). They are both Eagle Scouts (again, I’m not proud or anything).
I just realized there’s a haiku in this post!
The Madness Method:
A little more music for
a Sunday evening
- A Little Music for a Saturday Evening
- A Little Music for a Sunday Evening
- Music Feeds the Soul
- More Glover Gardens haiku
Let me know what you think about the album if you buy it!
