Original Piano based Contemporary Jazz music ideal for romantic evenings.
I wanted to create an album of smooth jazz music because I love the genre so much. I like to think of it as the soundtrack of my life. This album is best suited for background music for candle-lit dinners, or romantic encounters.

I am currently the Band Director at McEwen High School in McEwen, TN. I'm a native of Henderson, Ky. I operate a piano tuning service in Burns, Tennessee. I obtained my Bachelor of Music Education from Union University in Jackson, Tenn., and conducted post-graduate studies at the University of Memphis, Florida State University, and Austin Peay State University.
I have released three gospel piano CDs, an adult contemporary CD, and a Christmas CD entitled "Christmas Favorites". I am now releasing "Close the Blinds," a contemporary Jazz CD.
I am married to the former Christine Thomas of Charlotte, Tennessee. I have two children, Sarah (16) and Ben (11). We live in Burns, Tennessee.
