About "Eastern Neck Island"
Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge is a magical place in Maryland. Located at the mouth of the Chester River as it enters the Chesapeake Bay, Eastern Neck Island is a wintering habitat for thousands of waterfowl (including the tundra swan) that migrate each year to the Bay. During a visit to the island I experienced a sense of maternal protection extending over the woods and marshes. This feeling inspired me to write a lullaby. It was originally in a traditional style. However, I decided to take the music in a different direction. Keeping the diatonic melody, I reharmonized the tune with contemporary chords. Recorded by David Arivett.

I am primarily a jazz composer. A wide range of influences are found in my music including tango, blues, samba, fusion, ragtime, contemporary classical, American roots music, and other kinds of music that interest me.
