Summer Mood was written as a workout tune on some Dorian modes. Instead of the familiar IIm7 V7 progression I use something similar, a IIm7 IIm6 progression. In this progression the root note stays the same instead of moving up a 4th.
Welcome to my original music page! Jazz, pop, classical, folk, world, instrumental, vocal - over the years I have composed and arranged music in the many styles that reflect my eclectic tastes and various purposes. Some of these pieces have found their way onto recordings and concert stages while others have never made it out of my studio. This page is a place to gather them all together and offer them to the world. Feel free to listen, download song sheets, play along, comment and otherwise interact in any way you like.
