What defines "American Music"?
This is my goal in composition, I try to encompass the greatest and grandest aspects of American music. From Copland to Gershwin, from Dizzy Gillespie to Billy Strayhdorn and from Max Steiner to Bernard Herrmann. American Music is at the heart of what I am trying to accomplish.
I hope I can pay homage to those I mentioned in my compositions.
I am also interested in Politics, Hiking, and always learning.
Favorite music: Classical: Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, Igor Stravinsky
Jazz: Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Dizzy Gillespie
Some other stuff too.
