Savannah's Song just gets more lovely as it unfolds. I had visions of elegant dancers telling a love story on stage. Great piece by a long way!!!

super songs in a truly relaxing style

What beautiful and romantic tracks!

I found these works to be pictorial and evocative. Very enjoyable, indeed.

Brilliant offerings which give a solid sense of mood and place ;)

charming and relaxing works

what a lovely meditation to hear such works.somebody should be marketing this as I only just stumbled upon it and saw so few reviews on itunes. this music deserves more coverage!

Hello to the "Farewell" ...that was just lovely

Classical style but highly unique and praiseworthy delivery. In three words from me, Contemporary yet grounded!

In total agreement with other comments. We found your tracks utterly peaceful and impassioned yet somehow light with it. A very smart blend of complexity and simple expression...a sheer delight to behold!!!

Wonderful emotions full of passion and joy:) I was moved by your art.

I give you three D's for this music; Dreamy, Daring, and Delightful

Powerful sentiments in music. These tracks spin a story for the listener and really are something to enjoy.

Savannah's Song is dazzling and achingly beautiful, makes one think of a beautiful woman with hair glistening in strong sunlight. Brilliant!
Thu, Feb 13, 2014 12:30 PM
Breadth and depth of expression here! Genuinely loving the pieces!!!
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 5:28 PM
A most pleasing artistic vision :)

Terrific and visually potent works. Great job, especially with Sunset Celebrations...could see the colour variations play out throughout the piece.
Fri, Nov 15, 2013 5:11 PM
reflective gentle pieces
Tue, Nov 12, 2013 2:21 PM
Autumn Chill gave me the chills! Fabulous sounding piece. Love it!!!
Thu, Nov 07, 2013 2:07 AM
Suffolk Skies creates the mood and mindset that instills a great desire to experience Suffolk for one's self!
Wed, Oct 30, 2013 11:58 AM
What a joy it was to find the Italian piece! Full and well developed!!!

Schöne Werke, in die man klare Bilder sich selbst findet. Diese Lieder schaffen Szenen und auch sogar Szenenwechsel so wie einen Mahler. Absolut super. Vielseitig und mächtig beim Ausdruck! Laura, aus Ősterreich

Impressive works with great expression and story telling throughout

Your Healdsburg Memoire is as memorable as it is relaxing. Ace work and delighted to find it.

Loved the wave-like resonance with the Breakers piece, even miles away it recounts the sound and rythms of beach waves!
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 4:20 PM
Simply brilliant! Cross over doesn't describe it. The composer seems to be carving out a whole new genre with these works.
Thu, Aug 22, 2013 1:33 PM
Beautifully composed and played music that is quite moving. Such talent.
Thu, Aug 15, 2013 4:09 AM
These works show great emotional range, from nostalgic, to bright, to maudlin, and back again to light.
Tue, Aug 13, 2013 11:24 AM
Mesmerising and so very in keeping with the local scene and atmosphere. Well done!
Sat, Aug 10, 2013 5:37 PM
Love the blend of jazz and classical styles, makes it sound like George Winston especially with Autumn Chill...really cool listening.
Sat, Aug 03, 2013 11:44 AM
The artist's tracks make for beautiful and surreal listening. I'm glad I followed the link and suspect many more will love it too.
Fri, Aug 02, 2013 6:24 PM
Imaginative and florid works with lovely use of rhythm and melody, we liked it a lot
Mon, Jul 29, 2013 5:18 PM
There is a gentle genius at work here. The music handily conjures colour, form, and scene. Brilliance and simplicity all in one!
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 7:21 PM
Simply beautiful orchestration and melodic presence. Keith, CA.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 3:51 AM
Energy and expression, all there... and to think I know someone who did all this! You manage to transport the listener to other places and states-of-mind...otherworldly!
Sat, Jul 20, 2013 8:22 AM
Pleasing and authentic!

Just had a listen on Itunes, your music sounds so professional, I don't know why more people don't know you! - Nathan KP

Gripping and powerful. Where did it come from. Got lost visualizing stuff while these tracks were on,nice one!
Mon, Jul 08, 2013 1:26 PM
These are well crafted pieces, glad to hear things like this. You seem to balance a modern take on the classical foundations in some tracks whilst engaging a jazz beat in a lyrical mode in others. Great blend of style and genre.
Sat, Jul 06, 2013 11:07 AM
Your music is fluid and impressive. A pleasure to listen to!
Mon, Jul 01, 2013 3:16 PM
took a second look and listen to your page only to find a couple of different, and lovely pieces. The Romance certainly lives up to the title...nice sounds!
Wed, Jun 26, 2013 3:38 PM
I hear a distinctly Tchaikovksy influence in Suffolk Skies. Love the Well Tempered Italian. That is a good one, very clever!
Tue, Jun 25, 2013 5:15 PM
you sir, have missed your calling, you should have been composing for the movies. Tell me, do you think in images when you are creating? Love love love love love them all.
Mon, Jun 24, 2013 12:54 PM
Stunning sounds, wish it were already available on i-tunes...looking forward to the full album
Wed, Jun 19, 2013 8:21 PM
You are a very great composer/arranger/performer. this is very beautiful work.
