Listen to The Written Word
I composed the piano and original digital music on this playlist with the exception of song 11, the improvisational work with David, and Song 13, where I played and recorded a harmonica accompaniment over Junior Wells singing Stormy Monday.
Songs 1 and 2: I composed these two songs and my good friend David Evison injected life into them by taking my handwritten note sheets and playing through them several times with me; the music getting better each time until all the bugs were out and we arrived at what you hear here,
I wrote these two songs as a beginning to a Romeo and Juliet-plot musical – Where an Israeli girl, and a Palestinian boy fall in love, and where the Capulets could be Goldstein’s and .. , well you get it, enjoy !
Song 11: David also played piano when we played together in this short improvisation. David, out of no where just started playing this riff that I had never heard before, and I had my right hand wrapped around my harmonica, and I just fell into the music he was playing, and the two of us, made musical magic that day!
