Musical Recordings


blue bar


"Standards" refers to tried and true tunes that almost everyone
familiar with twentieth century American music has heard
performed often and by a variety of singers and other musicians.
Standards are also the stock-in-trade for professional musicians
who "cover" the so-called "Great American Songbook." Many
of these tunes were written by some of the great composers and
lyricists of the twentieth century, such as Fats Waller, Art Tatum,
George and Ira Gershwin, Rogers and Hammerstein/Hart,
Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn, Billy
Joel, and McCartney/Lennon--to name but a few.

All of the selections were recorded after May of 2013 in my home-based piano-
organ-keyboard room, using a Yamaha F105B electric piano as a controller
hardwired to my MacBook Pro laptop and using Apple's GarageBand,
virtual recording studio. Scroll all the way down the page for a photo
of my layout.

This is my home Keyboard Room/Recording Studio. It was formerly a living room,
but on the other side of the conveniently-located kitchen, there is a huge family
room, where the family actually spends most of its time when we are at home.

Nearly all of the recording is done in the corner at the far end of the room. You
will notice no  microphones in this photo, because digital recording doesn't
require them, though they are always an option for the acoustic instruments,
like the baby grand piano and the Hammond B-3 organ, which are pictured,
and horns, drums, guitars, and other instruments that may be used
from time to time.
