This book has the original copies not computer generated.
Sample recordings are here for some songs not all!
You can perform the songs with your version. You can
change the style, ad words, arrange for small or large ensemble.
The idea is to be creative not be a clone of the common man and
their low standards and mindless music with no harmony, melody,
or developed rhythm.
32 of these songs were written in
Toronto, My first set of tunes was written back in 1968 when I
was trying to form a group of musicians and perform original
music. Later I would compose other series of tunes for different
projects. I also wrote the free improvisational music there with
no bar lines and no exact rhythm. While in Toronto, I composed
most of my classical music.
After I moved to NYC I created
my large ensemble of 6 horns and rhythm using the tunes I created
in Toronto. This was my most interesting project in jazz.
Later in NYC I started my TV show and created music for
that, Latin series of tunes, New Music ensemble tunes, Children's
Suite, Diago Rivera Suite, Bach Suite for Jazz Ensemble and The
New York Jazz Sonata and I produced my two LPs in NYC too.
While I was in Acapulco, Mexico, I created some avant
guard disco music and fusion music with the computer. Later when
I was working in a club I composed songs for the group. But again
it was very difficult to get the performance level I wanted.
While in China I created the Chinese Jazz Tunes from
folk melodies from China. China has a rich musical culture both
native and modern. Although it only exist I believe in Shanghai
and Beijing. The other cities have limited exposure.
in NYC I created a lot of CDS from traditional tunes. I just
believe I should not exclude traditional music.
I left out tempo markings and style so you can come up
with your own style and feeling. Please do not be a copy cat
musician just to please the public. Music is about art not about
just pleasing others. The shame of it all is that musicians never
get to decide the level. It is never about the music always about
