These songs were composed over the past ten years. Some are older, composed in NW Washington, DC. Some are a little newer, composed in a northwestern portion of Brooklyn, NY called Williamsburg. The newer pieces were composed in my Silver Spring home, which backs up to a beautiful stretch of the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River.

They were all arranged and recorded from my home studio during the 2020 global pandemic.

Special thanks go to:
The amazing musicians that contributed from the safety of their home studios, Brian Wolfe and Antonio Cora for sage musical coaching, Eric Hilton for inspiration, Charles Ostle for sampling guidance, Exiquio Talavera for Logic X tech support, and Marilyn Rippetoe, Bryan Manzo and Luke Williams for the encouragement to finally put this music out there. Enjoy.

This music is dedicated to the memories of Margery Bernbaum and Josh Kay.
