New CD – Triumph
This album has been a long time coming. I have written songs all my life, these are a few I’ve written along the way. I think there’s something here for everyone, as the songs run the gamut from pop, straight ahead, and smooth jazz tunes, to, latin-jazz, etc. This Album is a real Triumph! I hope you enjoy it. The cd can be purchased on these website – Amazon and Perseverance Records.
