1200 songs


Sometime around the year 2003 an odd thing happened. Every time I sat down at the piano my hands would make up songs. I wouldn't remember them after I walked away so I started recording them. They just kept coming - for about a year. Then it stopped. These songs are the basis for the 2006 PBS sessions and the music I play now with Melissa Kassel.

Here are links to the original recordings. You'll find mostly complete songs but also fragments, variations, a rare cover, and a few embarrassing efforts for which I accept full responsibility. The folders - ideas1 through ideas30 are roughly chronological. ideas31 and above contain files which were misplaced, and some attempts to record earlier ideas.

The titles are generally whatever words came into my head at the time.
