These songs represent some of the variety of my tastes. I think one thing that unites many of them is a strong sense of melody and rhythm combined with virtuosity. I love improvised music and re-workings of pop tunes in other genres. As a sax player, I’m drawn to great horn sections. Down near the bottom of the list, you’ll find a few drum and bugle corps videos from a classic era of my favorite corps, the Blue Devils.
