Those of you who enjoyed reading my many song lyrics posted mostly in August and September of this year can now get the collection in two formats, PDF(only $5!) and hard copy.
This booklet I have to publish to have on hand at any gigs I will be doing in support of my CD(s) this coming spring/summer.
The fact is: I'm not yet making money from my music, so if you can lend support by at least buying the PDF it will help my cause to making my music finally available to the world of the internet after 30 years (!) of piano playing.
I am not a rich, retired guy or do I have a second paying career, so at least consider buying my CD: August Ocean Overture AND, if you want a sample of my lyric writing, this is the only booklet I will publish until I release my song CD later in 2008.
IT HAS FULL COLOR PHOTOS, some my own, and some stock photos that relate to the themes of Nature, music making, love of the sea, relationships, and American history songs (including my personal history).
The print format is 81/2 x 11 with two full color photo front and back covers. There are almost 15 or 20 color photos inserted in text. Of course the print copy is not $5 and price will be on my storefront at Lulu this week as soon as I approve the proof.
MEANWHILE you can link out to download the PDF for the $5
UPDATE: my CD: August Ocean Overture: I know, I know it is December! Though I had planned for an October release, remixing and even re-recording 2 tracks, plus a slow computer to upload and download huge music mp3 files has contributed to the delay in release.
IT WILL BE RELEASED WITH THE DEBUT OF MY NEW WEBSITE:
www.theLastRenaissanceMan.net this includes a full music purchase and sample page at JzCDz.com
This site also has my two books for sale with many excerpt pages to read with images and players of MY OWN MUSIC compositions to listen to while reading.
My launch date is about Dec. 12. I am waiting on links, proofs and stuff.
Thanks for your time and interest. My next update on website Launch day.
