The downbeat for the next new sound of my music is May 6 at 2:30 PM.
That is the Sunday that the new FluteDaddy quartet will premiere my latest compositions at the venue at Library 21C 1175 Chapel Hills Dr. The music is unique and engaging and I am really excited to share the songs and the stories of their creation with you. Here’s why:
All of the pieces in the show on May 6 are inspired by nature, art and life and each has a wonderful story. Prarie Frost is a somewhat cinematic piece inspired by a hazy dawn rising over a prairie touched with a magical coating of frozen droplets. Spring Forward describes a tale of a courageous crocus and is presented in a polyrhythmic, latin theme.
And, I am especially excited to perform Wednesday Blue, a piece inspired by the art of the highly regarded artist Suz Stovall. I think the piece represents well the spontaneous and joyful visual feast of color that is her art. I will tell the unusual story of the music’s creation and Suz will be present to accept my dedication. There are more pieces and all as interesting.

The new instrumentation of FluteDaddy quartet features dynamic jazz and classical pianist Reggie Berg, a newcomer who has been impressing people around the Front Range with his playing lately. I have had the great pleasure of working with bassist Jason Crowe for years and he is not only one of the finest players but adds a genuine, warm presence. Tyler Kennamer, our drummer, regularly performs with Jason and Reggie, really sets the groove, and all together the rhythm section really clicks.
Please, please come and join us for The LifeJazz Show on Sunday May 6 at 2:30 PM. It will be a memorable experience.
