I'm sure I posted this before and if I looked I'd find it. But I just thought I'd post it again, because Henry Mancini AND Larry Mckenna are truly amazing.  Larry is a Philadelphia icon. He's 80 something now and that's sad for many…

Here's a new version of my confusing composition 'Verwirrspiel'. I am happy that I was able to produce the video for the Berlin-Neukölln music school, where I have been working with great colleagues for years.

David enlightened me and schooled me here. I found the original version of the tune. I never liked going to major like it does in this version (the original version) until I heard it here and talked with David. I'm impressionable, what can…
