Albums


My newest CD is now available!
 
Eighteen timeless songs that will make you fall in love, inspired by the novel "Postcards in the Attic", a story of first love in the '50s.


 
Self Indulgence is good for the soul... when disciplined.
 
My new album, "Disciplined Indulgence", autobiographical and personally self-indulging, features 16 beautifully haunting, timeless songs spanning four generations and written by some of our most iconic and enduring composers. True to my soul, at times, my playing style takes liberties with the music as it was originally written (hopefully not obscene liberties) because I always feel compelled to play a song the way my heart hears and feels it. Like "slubs" in beautiful fabric, my personal interpretations are intended to create beauty in the fabric of my music.
 
"Disciplined Indulgence", Purely Piano, includes melodies by some of my favorite songwriters such as Michael Legrand, Marvin Hamlisch, Charlie Chaplin, Kris Kristofferson, Edith Piaf, Johnny Mercer, Paul Williams, Henry Mancini, Dolly Parton, Don McLean, and Andrew Lloyd Weber.
 
Sit back, imagine blue hydrangeas or pink roses, indulge yourself with fine chocolates or a glass of wine and escape for a moment of "Disciplined Indulgence".
 
 
 
An inspirational collection of 16 songs to soothe the soul. Includes "Candle on the Water", "Wind Beneath My Wings", "Hallelujah", "You Raise Me Up", "His Eye is on the Sparrow", "Tears in Heaven", "One Moment in Time", and more.
 
Creates a soundscape for meditation and relaxation. Makes a great and memorable gift.
 
 
 
A calming compilation of 16 favorite melodies including classical, Disney, standards, and pop music played with a New Age flair.
 
Originally created for my grandson, Drew, to listen to at bedtime, "Dream" has found a wider niche. It's been played at Madison's Meriter Hospital Infant Intensive Care Unit, in gift shops, galleries, spas, and dental offices. Soldiers in Iraq have sent heartwarming thank you notes saying this CD brought them great comfort.
 
"Dream" makes a great baby gift, grief gift, enhances relaxation and promotes peace of mind.
 
Let "Dream" soothe your soul.
 
 
 
Mellow holiday mood music.
 
A holiday must-have for your home and/or car. Makes a great holiday gift or stocking-stuffer.
 
 
 
A novelty CD.
 
A funky frolic through musical time from the Roaring Twenties to the present played, honky tonk piano style and in retro sound. There's even a sound simulating the needle drop heard on 78 RPM records of yesteryear. The crackle is totally intentional.
 
"Last Date" features Westside Andy (Linderman) playing harmonica. Janet Tyler Johnson's vocal on "Ain't Misbehavin" reprise is totally steamy. 
 
Great upbeat music for parties, road trips, attitude adjustment and reportedly, inspirational for cleaning the house. Matures will reminisce to the oldies, Baby Boomers will recall a time or two at the local saloon, and kids just might find "Vamps" quite catchy. Certainly, kitschy.
