Memory Of Love

There were two great songs that inspired me to write Memory Of Love: one was “Baby Come To Me” recorded by Patti Austin and James Ingram; the other was “Friends & Lovers” recorded by Gloria Loring and Carl Anderson.  Tara St. Maartan and Lawrence Clayton sang this production made in 1988.  A duet about a love affair that’s ended.

Old Friends

My homage to the late, great Joe Sample…both a legendary member of the Jazz Crusaders as well as a solo artist.  This was written as a smooth jazz tune and produced in 2008.

Old Mr. Boston

Waterfall_pool copy.jpg

So when i walk my dog in the morning, I pass by a wooded area opposite the parking lot at the Glen Cove Train Station.  Lo and behold, I see that somebody is hurling their empty pint bottles of Old Mr. Boston Blackberry dozens!

    I thought to myself,  "What kind of person does that?" That's when the idea came about to write a song about an addict who's dealer has gone missing and he needs a substitute to "make it though the night."

    Old Mr.Boston is a rock/blues shuffle produced in spring of '23.  Think of any good rock/blues band whose last set you saw at 2am!

Some Kind Of Love


  Back in the 1970’s, my dad heard me playing this melody which prompted him to sit at the kitchen table and write the “libretto” for Some Kind Of Love. 

 “A man looks back through the years to his youth, when there were no bills to pay, no responsibilities, just violins and carefree days between two lovers.  As he reminisces he wishes he could summon those days again.”

   Some Kind Of Love is a piano, bass, drum vocal arrangement in the style of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra.

Spring Rain

Heather Little provides a fantastic performance of this melancholy tune about the search for love.  The production builds to a big finish that reminds me of a Barbra Streisand tune.  Larry Spagnola co-writes the words as this tune was written in 1983.

Stay With Me was written on a toy Casio keyboard back in 1982, while working in the music department for an advertising agency in NYC.  It’s latin style smacks of Sergio Mendez’ Brazil 66 sound as Jackie Kolata lends her vocal talents.
