We Remember Marty is here under the Ranch Cabin Records tab especially for those who do remember and miss him.

I am certainly one. You’re invited to listen (at no charge) to a full album of Jazz standards in the piano bass drums trio format. Also please feel free to leave comments, stories, pictures having to do with pianist Marty Harris.

The Flutesonic Chamber Orchestra, winner of  the national auditions Greystone Concert series presents their summer concert featuring David  Shostac.  We are a full range, beautiful and unique orchestra: Performing baroque concertos, modern, and romantic works with absolute precision and the joy of life and beauty that great music holds.

Feature Works:  Vivaldi, Telemann, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky Korsakov, Joaquin Rodrigo and Benjamin Godard.

The Orchestra is mostly flutes of all sizes and ranges.  I am the only regular member playing a string instrument! The bass section includes me on string bass with Nancy Newman on contrabass flute and Roger Greene on contrabass clarinet.  Roger doubles on harpsichord.  It’s the most unusual bass section I’ve ever been in.

Our group has won the 2015-2016 Greystone Concerts in the Mansions Series National Auditions.  Stay tuned for more exciting events by this top notch group featuring soloist David Shostac conducted by Gordon Halligan.

the bottom line

bass quartet

I like to think it’s important to keep learning new things. Working from the bottom up, lowest tones vibrating as composer Simon Garcia plays and conducts his modern compositions for bass ensembles from the bass .

This recording is something I produced at my own recording facility.  Prominent bass part performed by me.  Billy Paul is playing drums, CuiCui singing—-ev’rybody’s got the Fever!
