Jazz on NPR

Over the past few years a number of my tunes have been featured as bumper-music (short music interludes between stories) on NPR’s Morning Edition.

My wife came home last week and told me she heard a couple of my tunes while driving in the car that day. Upon further investigation, turns about I’ve had a number of plays this year … mainly after sobering stories about Iran and Afghanistan.

While I’m working on a new site … here are some videos!

This is a performance of Ridgecrest on The Seattle Channel. This song is based on the chord changes to Thelonious Monk’s Green Chimneys. I read somewhere that Green Chimneys was the name of the school his daughter attended so I named to after the school my daughter attends.

I’m awaiting the call to do this before a Seattle Sounders match … anyway, an old video featuring the closing number from one of my  Brotherhood of the Drum performances. My good friend (and usually a drummer) Bill Rieflin is playing bass.
