Steal Away  Play music sample &
Little David Play on Your Harp
 Play music sample

".deeply responsive to the mood and texts of both spirituals"
-- Paul Hale, Organists' Review

"Steal Away is a quiet meditation making use of lush jazz harmonies and a free tempo. Little David, Play on Your Harp is intended to be performed with a slow swing tempo. It begins with the texture of a jazz combo (bass, piano, solo instrument) but builds to a climax that can only be intended to sound like a big band. Both works are idiomatically well suited to performance on the organ... The works ...do not demand the improvisational skills of a jazz musician. The music is completely written out... The pieces are definitely a change of pace for most organists and organ audiences. If you appreciate jazz, you will surely find these pieces fun to play."
-- Jon Holland, The Diapason

-- D. DeWitt Wasson, The American Organist
Variations on Amazing Grace  Play music sample
A continuous set of variations, including two blues.

"...brings out much of the inherent characteristics of the hymn...a tremendous change or emotions.not an easy piece - much technical virtuosity required as well as a feeling for the jazz and blues style upon which the writing is based. ...conveys a quality of improvisation ... unusual, but very clever."
-- Dr. Dennis Schmidt, The Diapason
