Expect the unexpected. Clarinets and power chords. Banjo and delta blues. earth.boy's songs are unique combinations of familiar sounds. No two are alike yet there is a common thread that unites them. From jazz to punk and everything in between, earth.boy is always listenable and often contagious.
My latest album, The Virtue of Simplicity, is available on all streaming services and is featured on my Audio page. Yet another jazz album, The Virtue of Simplicity tries to live up to its name. Mark Twain famously said, “I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.” In this album I took the time to write a short letter, to try to reduce jazz to its essence.
Earlier this year I released City of Glass, combining elements of urban jazz, traditional jazz, smooth jazz and jazz fusion, Translucent, a solo improvisational piano performance along the lines of what has been characterized as the "third stream"--a fusion of jazz and classical traditions and Café au Lait, an homage to Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli,
In 2022 I released Reflections, a collection of original jazz tunes, An Epistle to Whimsy, a collection of mostly acoustic whimsies, A Joyful Sound, a collection of 24 original jazz and acoustic compositions, Blues in a Jar, a collection of 12 original blues tunes with an emphasis on acoustic and resonator guitar and Mystery & Ambiguity, a unique fusion of ambient acoustic, electric and classical sounds.
My tastes are eclectic and so are my albums. Planet of Gypsies, Love Is a Kind of Lonesome, Simply Yours, 2020, Pássaro Do Jazz and Planet Jazz are all jazz-oriented. Old Wine New Bottles and Homespun showcase my take on Americana, Reggae Planet needs no explanation, True North and Rainforest Chronicles are acoustic and my earlier albums are a mix of rock, blues, jazz and country.
Just go to the audio page, where all of the albums (or, if you prefer, individual tracks) can be downloaded for free. Or stream on Apple, Spotify, Amazon, Qobuz or any of the other streaming services.
