An Evening of Spirituals and Jazz

I had the great privilege of doing a house concert with world-class jazz trumpet player Kyle Gregory, and the result is the best music I've ever made.

We did a set of traditional spirituals to open including "When the Saints Go Marching In" and "Precious Lord, Take My Hand." The second half of the concert featured jazz favorites, including "Stardust" and closing with "Georgia on My Mind."

With only one rehearsal two months earlier, I never knew quite what Kyle was going to do from dazzling cadenzas to a wah-wah sound improvised from a plastic cup!

We had fun, the audience had fun, and I think you'll enjoy it, too!

Impromptu Piano Praise

I recorded some hymns I might play for preludes in the spirit of 1 Peter 4.10, 11:

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.

I’m grateful that God is using my musical gift to bless people. Please see what folks are saying on the album page. .

Ewell-tide Carols!

A long-time choir director said, Christmas has the best music! I agree, don’t you? Nearly everyone loves Christmas music, and I love to play it! Another wonderful thing about the Christmas season is that amidst all the shopping and other busy-ness, we can hear practically anywhere the good news of Jesus! Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
