Here are links to lead sheets of my original tunes, for your playing and singing pleasure. I’m an ASCAP songwriter member.
Please let me know what you think, and if you decide to perform any of these!
Three For Three (instrumental, 2012): a light jazz waltz
18th Street Theme (instrumental, 2012): a theme for the DC Jazz Jam; an attempt to bring an Art Blakey vibe to this weekly DC jazz institution. We premiered the theme at the 3rd Anniversary jam on August 12, 2012.
An August Day In April (vocal, 2009): Inspired by a trip to Ithaca, NY during a particularly warm April. The title came from a friend we were visiting
Cleveland Park (vocal, 2011): a modest contribution to Jason Mendelson’s MetroSongs project, about a solid upper Northwest neighborhood on the Red Line with a strong sense of history. Recorded by Jason and me on MetroSongs Volume 3.
December Light (instrumental, 2010): was going to be another Hanukkah song, but the melody was better than the lyrics
Fall in Boston (instrumental, 2008): easy 3/4 swing tune. Was also intended as a vocal, but again, music beat lyrics
Hanukkah Light (vocal, 2009): Trying to fill a need for quality American Hanukkah songs
I Believe In Rhubarb (vocal, 2008): my first song with lyrics, inspired by a conversation over lunch at the Vermont Jazz Center summer workshop
I Hate Onions (vocal, 2008): counterpart to “Rhubarb”
In the Lounge (vocal, 2011): a moment in the life of a well-traveled business person
Stand Right (vocal, 2011):My tribute to the DC Metro and all who ride it
Thanksgiving With Uncle Rob (vocal, 2011): New for Thanksgiving 2011, and dedicated to my uncle Rob, who is always so happy just to see the family
