Tho' I love writing songs I consider myself a composer. I like too many genres to be tied to any "one". Country influence holds sway right now. Have written for jazz guitarist Sam Crain and folksinging member Mark Hermann. Was a copyist for Manilow.
I have heard a jazz when to me was two years. My father was the head of an orchestra and regularly listened to the radioreceiver "Time for jazz, The Voice of America"(look at the pics in my profile). He played the sax.tenor and accordion, and my mather played the violin and the accordion too. They learned me to music.
CD of the day : Jeff Healey : "Hell to Pay".
