Jamativity

Main Content

This site was new in June, 2023, and it is still under development.  That development might take a while.

Jammin' til impact

The music here is mostly original, and spans a wide variety of genres.  Boogie woogie and stride piano, mellow spacey pieces,  blues, rock, electronic.  Lots of improv.  It might not be trendy, but that is not the goal.  Jamativity is the goal.  Sound, feeling, experience, connection, creation.  If you explore the playlists below, you will see for yourself.  Jammin' til impact.

MELLOW DAYS

A collection of mellow instrumentals, about half solo piano and half with guitar, keyboards, and/or bass.

ROCKING BIRDS

These videos feature birds and mostly instrumental tracks.

ON VACATION

These 8 tracks were recorded in one long evening session with Joe DB on keys and Slim Golba on bass. Slim had to go to a gig after the first four tracks; hence track five is titled "Debassed". "Dream within a Dream" is a poem by Edgar Allen Poe. "The Tyger" is a poem by William Blake, and "The Lamb" goes along with that, in keeping with Blake's pairing of "Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience". We had only a brief preparation the night before, so most of this is improv on my basic ideas.

THE SECRET OF THE ELIXIR

The titles on The Secret of the Elixir revolve around a monastic theme. For example, "While the world goes around" is a motto of the Carthusians and appears in the logo on Chartruse, which they make with a secret recipe. The Elixir is Chartruese.
