"A well performed piece with high production values. I listened to it 2 times spaced a few days apart and came away with the same impression both times - that while the jamming is enjoyable, there is no melody in the piece which sticks in my head - I…"

I can hear a marked difference ( for the better ) in the second ( East West ) version  -particularly in the strings and overall dynamic response. What did that package set you back ?
 
BTW: very nice piece as well !"

  • Greetings Phil,

    I like your music very much. It is very well written and arranged. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Very best,

    Larry Elliott

  • Wonderful work. Pro. You should teach at Berklee College of Music!

    All the best,

    R' Avraham

  • Amazing Music
  • Heard your composition "My Museum" on here tonight. So lovely! And inspirational, I might add. I'm currently working on a score for an independent feature film that touches strongly on jazz elements. Thank you for sharing your music here; it both inspires and encourages.
  • Primo Kim- beautiful arrangements. Well done, sir!
  • Hi Phil.
    thanks for your nice comment. Sorry i didn't reply back any sooner.
    At the moment i'm more focus t on Orchestral based like music. I need to get more different styles into it.
    It is more sound design what i do right now. I'm busy to score a movie which was made just after the second world war.
    So there is no sound at it. I have to build up from scratch, sound and music, and i love to do that.
    Here in Holland it is very difficult to get grip onto the business. But slowly getting into it.
    What i love to do is make a living out of scoring and composing (but i guess a lot of us want that too).

    Rainy days (like today) are filled with colors (so i can lock my self up in my studio haha).
    And sorry for my bad English.

    Love to hear from you.

    Cheers Arthur
  • Phil,
    Oh yeah, Robert Farnon I've got a bunch of his work on my iPod that I listen to. He's even got that group that idolizes his work. I've gotten stuff from them before. Yeah, he's Mr. Strings.
  • Phil,
    I've always appreciated the work of Arrangers like yourself who can transform a basic tune into a full blown production piece. Frank Sinatra was so lucky that he fell into the arrangers he was associated with like Mr. Riddle, Mr. May, Mr. Jenkins (who started out playing banjo a plucked instrument, there's hope for me???), Don Costa, and a few others. I read about them in the fine book by the late Gene Lees called "Arranging the Score". Good health to you and keep up the good work.
  • Hello Phil,
    Sonofagun your arrangements sound like they were done by Nelson Riddle and Billy May cloned. I'm mainly a song writer and a novice in arranging myself. I've been studying the arrangements of others for awhile and although I haven't had any formal training I'm plugging along. Keep up the good work.
  • Phil-

    I know what you mean. I'm actually not too far behind you and my low IQ days are becoming more numerous and my need to use IMDB to remember "what's his/her name from that movie back in..."
