Second improvisation from my concert at Calvary Church, Stonington, CT USA 3-30-12
This is the third piece from a concert I did at Calvary Church, Stonington, CT USA on March 30, 2012. It's an improvisation based loosely on the melody of Hatikvah.
A performance of my favorite Joplin rag, Gladiolus Rag, from a concert at Pine Point School in Stonington, CT USA on April 28, 2011.
Performing my "Floresville Boogie," named after my dad's birthplace in Texas.
Bird-brain Rag is one of Joseph Lamb's rags from his later years, the late 1950's. This piece is not heard very often, mainly because it is no longer in print, and because it is not from the ragtime heyday, and is hence considered by some to be therefore less "authentic." It's a lot of fun to play.  Notice the broken tenths in the left hand of the last two sections.  I'll provide a copy if anyone wants to play this.
This is my "jazzed-up" version of Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag, loosely influenced by Jelly Roll Morton's style, and, in general, by the New Orleans treatment of traditional rags.
Evergreen Rag, my one and only James Scott rag. 
A song I wrote for my wife, back in 1978 or so, titled Only the Sweetness
"Pine Point Boogie"...amusing myself while waiting for a student to arrive for a lesson.
"Cubicle Boogie." Another "waiting for student" boogie-woogie.  Also trying out the new video camera...
A traditional performance of one of Scott Joplin's best-known rags, The Maple Leaf Rag.  From a concert at Bronxville Women's Club, Bronxville, NY USA summer 2008.
SUMMERTIME BLUES, a medley of blues and boogie-woogie with Gershwin's "Summertime" sandwiched in the middle.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.
A performance of my BLUE BOOGIE in Bronxville, NY USA Earth
PIANO MOTOR 5...a hybridized toccata/motor piece...a little too much Ravel, perhaps.
A performance of the Van Heusen/DeLange classic, DARN THAT DREAM, from a concert in 2007.
Opening improvisation from a concert to benefit the music program at Robt. E. Fitch High School in Groton, CT USA. The improv morphs into my song, "Only the Sweetness," written for my wife around 1978.
KC BOOGIE, a boogie-woogie loosely based on the Kansas City style of Pete Johnson. Recorded at a benefit concert for the Fitch High School Band, Groton, CT USA.  in 2007
A New Orleans style boogie-woogie inspired by James Booker's recording of the song "How Do You Feel?"
