Title: FLASHIN..
I compose, arrange, play guitars, saxes, bass, keyboards, rap, sing.. I just do my thing.. I played in the well known SF bay area fusion band CLOUDS in the 70s.. and before the days of all this bling I spent 2 years in the late 70s with THE DAVID LA FLAMME BAND touring the states.. sex drugs rock and roll.. had it all.. EVERYTHING.. but I wouldn't trade for what I got now.. my own way.. my own music.. my own thing..

an award winning composer of chamber music with university honors and published and recorded compositions, I am a jazz musician.. I've played with, among others, woody shaw, jon hendricks, julian priester and mike nock.. I'm no longer a classic cover tune or mainstream jazz artist, rather a jazz musician who believes in world music as trane did.. seeking to blend many genres into a fresh and innovative style of jazz.. I also compose and do music with my girl margot in our band duo called CLOUD..

after many years on the axe I've finally done a 2nd CD showing my style.. RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 2.. twelve original songs and collabs featuring syntopia, margot du bois and TLT50 .. all you guitar lovers can buy these 2 CDs from one of the most innovative guitarists on the scene.. :-)

order both my CDs here direct:

Thanks for visiting Joe - and for the kind comments on the toons wink ;) That piano melody is nothing more than a "sitting on the stool doodling around waiting for the church choir to show up" wisp of time... I field recorded it and took it home smile :) Just finished a wild guitar ride for Shyonen (remember Shy?) for his next CD due out the end of the year. Nothing since then - fighting an illness that's kept me from composing, and other extracurricular activities for the meantime... Cheers to life amigo - been loving the pics Mags puts up of your gardens wink ;)

Sorry for delayed answer, Joe...
You have put such a comment so I may see that you have got absolutely clear vision of this piece of music. Yes, sometimes there is something beyond the words in a work of art but its atmosphere is saturated with one or an other idea so this idea produces its action on us outside of our will. Perhaps slightly different but nevertheless.
Great thanks for your attention, listen and comment, Joe! Highly appreciate that, my friend! All the best! Andrew.
Highly appreciate that, my friend! smile :)
All the best! Andrew.

Thanks a lot for the great comment, Joe! You have understood the idea of the piece in the perfect way - maybe even better than me by myself. Really, there's no any compromise here, some exhaustion in the final part but not a "quarter asked or given". And also great thnx for the solidarity, for your words: "I stand with you steadfastly steel", which are the great encouragement to me and it's difficult to overestimate that!
All the best to you! Andrew.
