about

Following a severe burn at age two, I experienced a prolonged stay in the burn ward at St. Louis City hospital. Despite the pain and trauma, grace did come to me in that place, and it still brings tears of joy when I go there. I believe that I chose to continue living, in a large part, due to the black nurse, comma, who with her gentle brown eyes, said, "You're going to be alright, little man!"
The sections of the piece are: Flames; Speeding Car to the ER; Arrival; Quiet Rest; Silence of the Painkillers; The Nurse Goddess; The Day of Release.

I take in and respond to all sounds and styles of music that have the qualities of strength, depth, spirit, structure, beauty and intelligence. Examples include the works of J.S. Bach, Stravinsky, Mississippi delta blues, John and Alice Coltrane, the exquisite music of Bali, Balkan brass bands, and I can't forget to mention my namesake Ludwig van Beethoven!
