CAUGHT BY THE SOUND, my one and only Bandcamp album is available as an album on Bandcamp. Mostly consisting of songs from FAWMs 2015 & 2016, including such smash hits as 'Rejectee', 'Schitt's Weak Dog', and 'The Winter of Our Discotheque'...see link above.

Stuff I use: Fender electric & Guild acoustic guitars, mandolin, bass, piano, organ, synth noises, drum programming, harmonica, tambourine and assorted percussion.

    Hey Rick ., so glad you like Sweet Jazz Music. It was so much fun to put into music!

    Thanks so much for your nice comments! I was still a toddler when John Lennon was shot, but I'm glad that I got the facts and the vibe right. "One Day At A Time" was also the title of a Lennon biography that Chapman had read and got him upset some more.
