Speaking of pork pie hats…

I sometimes wonder if I could even play the tenor without my pork pie.  Thanks, Pres.  My original tenor inspiration.  I hope that you can “hear the voices you left behind…” (Johnny Mac)

Every Crying Mother

I composed Every Crying Mother in response to two events The winter after my first child, Sarah, was born, Sarajevo became a contested battleground. The entire civilian population was buffeted by war, disease and starvation. A mourning mother was shown on TV cradling her dead baby who had been mortally wounded when a rocket hit the marketplace. At that moment it struck me that the pain of a mother’s loss was worse than any other imaginable. This song is dedicated to every mother who has ever lost a child. May Sarah, Rachel, Jordan and my wife Roberta never feel the pain of that woman in the marketplace.
