  Back in 2020 when Covid first created havoc in all of our lives, I posted this...                                                          

Dear Naples Jazz Lover,

Dear Friends & Naples Jazz Lovers,

We all have more free time than we know what to do with and as a musician, I felt it important to compose and record a song that is timely and perhaps helpful in reinforcing the guidelines that we’re all trying to follow. (“It ain’t easy, right?”)

With that in mind I composed, sang and played The Stay At Home Blues and recorded it "all by my lonesome" in my home studio.

Feel free to share it with others.

I hope and pray that this will be over soon and I’ll be able to see you and actually play live performances!

Stay safe & healthy!

Bob

                            The Stay At Home Blues



                        Jazzy Easter Parade



  Here’s another piece that I call An Improvised Soliloquy for Unaccompanied Trumpet:


                       Cheek To Cheek

                                                       


                            The Way You Look Tonight



Stu and I recorded these songs at his home studio and yes we actually were able to record together while practicing “social distancing”.

We know it’s been tough on all of us with the hardship of not being able to play our music for you, so this was our heartfelt effort to remedy the situation.

Stay safe & healthy!

Bob
