New Tune — Friday Feeling

I’m home from work early and pleased to release my new tune for this week, Friday Feeling. It’s a dancy little number for you weekend pleasures and features soprano saxophone melodies, harmonized by sequencers, and big electronic beats. It’s available on Bandcamp for a buck, like most of my tunes. Listening is free but purchases […]

New Tune — Ataraxia

This Friday’s tune is a bit different from the things I’ve been releasing lately. It’s a darker sort of mood tune, as opposed to the big dancy sort of beats I’ve been putting out lately. I’ve been really digging the music of trumpeter/composer Jon Hassell lately and wanted to dabble a bit in that sonic […]

New Tune — Mindstream

Mindstream is built around a slowed down montuno, played on the vibraphone, with a heavy dub beat and a haunting soprano saxophone melody. There’s a brief moment of blisteringly quick bass clarinet and a spacey groove with soprano solo to the end.

New Tune — La Arrondissement à Nuit

I’m very happy to be releasing a new tune today called, La Arrondissement à Nuit. It’s a loose groove featuring two soprano saxophones playing the melody and a swaggering bari solo. Check it out here. As always, listening on Bandcamp is free but purchases are always appreciated. You can also follow me on Bandcamp to […]

Rondo alla Game Show for Flute

Here’s a new tune that I’ve written for flute called Rondo alla Game Show. It’s a jaunty little melody for an imagined game show, possibly somewhere where all the colors are a bit too bright… https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/track=3642309165/size=small/bgcol=333333/linkcol=9a64ff/transparent=true/

New Recording — Castile Rose

Today I’m releasing a new work that I’ve written for soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, vibraphone, marimba, piano, and drums called Castile Rose. A work of unrelenting optimism, Castile Rose is loosely inspired by John Steinbeck’s novella, Tortilla Flat, where Danny and the paisanos pass many an afternoon on Danny’s porch, under the castile rose bush.

Complexity in the Simplest of Things – Bach Cello Suites

I’ve been playing through the Bach Cello Suites this week, which is always rewarding. These seemingly simple lines are surprisingly difficult to play with clarity and direction. (As you’ll hear below!) I’ve been listening to the Pablo Casals recordings from the 1930’s, which are quite amazing. I swear there are some parts where he swings. […]

Homage to Philip Glass

This week I’ve been working on an adaptation of a solo violin piece by NYC composer, Jeremiah Bornfield, called Homage to Philip Glass. I’ve been looking for some new solo pieces that are a bit quirky and off the beaten path since live performance is still technically illegal due to the pandemic. It still seems unsafe […]

Goa Variations Videos

Here are some videos I’ve made for each of the five variations on my latest album, Goa Variations. They are largely abstract and mostly textural, though there are a few focal points in some of them. I’m relatively new to creating original video, but I’m really interested in multimedia aspects of performance. This interest really began […]

One more for old time sake… Tonight, the Eddy/Meyer Trio will give its last performance at 8pm EST via live stream before I head to England in a couple of weeks. Add Jake Eddy or myself on FB to see the stream. It will also be available on Reddit. This group started two years ago, […]
