Samba Of The Trees – A Bossa Nova Turned Anthem

Samba Of The Trees, a composition inspired by trees was chosen by North End Woodlands.

 The North End Woodlands project, formed in November 2016, has created a collaborative plan to reforest the avenues of the North End of Colorado Springs and will use Samba of The Trees as a website anthem. Tree planting is beginning and you may donate all or part of a tree through their website.
About Samba Of The Trees: A stand of cottonwood trees in Garden of the Gods park has been a refuge for me. I lay against mighty trunks, watch the golden light shimmer through the beautiful leaves and feel the peace and grace of ancient wisdom. One morning the melody and rhythm of Samba of The Trees came to me and I wrote the piece in its entirety when I got back to my studio.  The following is a score recording of the piece. While the digitally sampled audio is pretty realistic but live performance with improvised solos is quite lovely.


LifeJazzing – Creating New Enjoyment

LifeJazzing is being tuned in to life in a new way to accept miracles and opportunities and to respond to life creatively, improvising, playing from the heart and enjoying  life more.


You have heard people say “let’s jazz it up”about many things including wardrobe, decor, publishing and more. They are talking about adding color, expression and zest. They are suggesting we be more creative, spontaneous or lively. LifeJazzing is my term for applying the metaphor of jazz to life. On the one had playing the right notes in the universal sonata and on the other improvising and creating.

This blog was formed by LifeJazzing after hackers destroyed my previous site and I chose to see this as an opportunity to share a joyfully optimistic  philosophy in a different way. This is the first post. In future posts i’ll publish bits of poetry, video, art and music along with stories of inspiring people. Please stay tuned for more.

Part of my “campaign” to inspire others is the new event The LifeJazz Show. Come join us for some entertainment and  inspiration.  I have been presenting themed concerts for years and for years before that got comfortable sharing stories with business audiences. This seems like the perfect next thing.

Bear with me as I slowly rebuild the website with new content. I will start sharing on this blog right away.  Your comments, contributions and suggestions are welcome at
