Story

The Second Congo War (also known as the Great War of Africa) began in August 1998 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly called Zaire), and officially ended in July 2003 when the Transitional Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo took power; however, hostilities continue since then.

Competing warlords kidnapped children and trained them as soldiers.

As I submit this song for distribution, on the news is similar stories that occurred in Uganda. It would be great if a song could stop all this horror, but as it is, it's simply the story of just one of these millions of children who fell victim to a world out of balance and mad greed. A voice of empathy is all I can give at present.

This is a download only single.

From the album: Moonlight on Water.

This is just the feeling of dancing spontaneously out in nature. Keyboards, guitar and flute.

Story

From the album "Something Like Jazz". A muted trumpet with a jazz feel plays over a dance/hip hop beat. I like to dance to it. Maybe I'll do a longer remix...

Something Like Jazz
I don't understand why this musician isn't on the top of all lists. His music is some peaceful, magical, and seductive. I am the daughter of a musician who played with the Big Bands and I know they never sounded this good. This music absolutely takes you into Dreamland to experience all the good emotions of being a human and to appreciate all the great arts that we have in our world. Love it. Patty-Gae

Story

From the album "songs for Sedona'. A slow start with cinematic keyboard sounds and Jesse Kalu's cool native bamboo flute,kicks into world beat percussion a beautiful flowing melody.

Often on a full moon night drummers gather in the canyons to play in the silver glow.

Carol E. Slater    The Light Connection magazine

This CD is amazing. Vibrant, alive, and resonant with the feel of so many aspects of Sedona.

From the album "Moonlight On Water". With the sound of Oak Creek, here in Sedona AZ, a beautiful piano song with light, deep percussion. The most played of all my instrumental pieces on radio, internet and cable/satellite stations.

"The Lie” starts with some ominous lines, but gets lighter. This is as close as I get to rap, with a thumbnail sketch of our darker history, and a vision of a better future. It’s not Tupac, or Pitbull, or Eminem, but it’s my variation of rap.

From "Global Blending".

Though I’m not a believer in re-incarnation, I have to wonder about how quickly and exactly
“This Time” came to me. Let’s say I’ve got an open mind.

From The album "Global Blending".

the boredom of brutality

A feeling for music

I don't know whether I spoke first or sang first as a little boy. My earliest memories have a soundtrack. I wrote my first songs before I could play an instrument.

When I started playing piano, then guitar, I wanted, more than learning note for note the songs I'd loved, to create what I'd never heard before.

Certainly many songs come out sounding like one genre or another, but many also didn't fit neatly into any category. I called my first label "No Categories", but decided I didn't want to have my label say "no".

Now it's "Futurewave", but in the present, whenever I pick up a guitar or sit at the keyboard, the wonder and mystery of where music comes from is always there.

And it's always fresh. Reaching onto the future.
