Release of "American Fantasy"

 

My seventh album, "American Fantasy," has been released.  It's on this site and on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.  

"American Fantasy" is a suite of eight orchestral pieces using mostly brass instrumentation.   I wrote the music over a period of a few weeks about 10 years ago.   Six of the pieces were always intended to be part of a suite.  I originally wrote a seventh song for the suite but it was discarded.   For this album, I added two pieces written during the same period.   

The music has a particularly American feel, which is reflected in most of the song titles and, of course, the name of the album.    

 

Next Album: "American Fantasy"

 

I'm in the last stages of recording the music for my next release, which I plan to name "American Fantasy."    It will be a suite of eight classical tracks with orchestration consisting mainly of brass instruments. (with a little piano, strings, and one piece with woodwinds),   The opening track is "An American Dream" and the closing track is "An American Fantasy."    Other tracks are "The New World" and "The Founding."   The style is very unlike anything else I've written.

Once the recordings are finished, the music still needs to be mastered (which I get done by a mastering service).   It will be a digital-only release.
