Reorganizing Preview Tracks


wesbound music track coverAfter careful consideration I’ve decided to remove all full length tracks, which are embedded in this blog and on Facebook and elsewhere. I have uploaded short preview tracks much like iTunes offers them. They range around 30 seconds each, two tracks are beyond one minute. This should give you an idea of what the rest of the tracks sound like. As I’ve still not entirely given up hopes on making a little extra lunch money on the side I provide my music as for-purchase-download files (no physical CD yet). I am aware that typical Smooth Jazz audiences aren’t too partial to downloading and prefer holding a physical CD in their hands, ideally purchased at a live concert and signed by the artist. Well… I can’t ever get there, if I don’t make at least a little bit of money from downloads. In other words: If you like my music and if you’d like to see me take another level, we’re going to have to meet half-way. :-)

I might post a download tutorial some time. For now, please find my tracks in the music player in the right column or on the wb music page. Download-links are available directly in the music player and they’re labeled “buy”. Thanks for all your support so far, I appreciate it! And my apologies for any inconveniences while I was in the process of reorganizing the linked music files.

Extension of Song on iTunes, Amazon et al


I hate soliciting. While I am happy to support other people’s causes and projects here and there, I hate to do that on my own behalf. However, I must if another one of my tunes is supposed to remain available on iTunes, Amazon and other common digital stores, the latter more or less for reasons of exposure and wider availability. (it’s like having a spot on a Macy’s shelf at a major urban mall or something…). I am subscribed to some of the major digital stores, like iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify – to name just a few – via Tunecore.com as I found their distribution model to be transparent, easy to understand and – well at the time – fairly o.k. in pricing. They charge a flat fee per song per year for distribution on up to 20 different stores including those stores’ national outlets, which multiplies that number significantly. This flat fee is due for this song:

If you enjoy, what you’re hearing, then please consider following the link above in the player to purchase a digital copy of it. I need about 10 copies to get to keep the song available on above named popular stores. I personally prefer selling via bandcamp as their distribution model is even more fair to the artist. However and like I said – exposure on iTunes, Amazon etc. adds “credibility”. I’m not going to argue on the latter and simply accept the terms and rules ;-) Thanks for your support, I appreciate it!

Excellent! I got to extend availability of Naiad Theme on iTunes, Amazon & many more digital stores for another year thanks to Sherry Sherrard-Jackson and Cliff Francoeur! Below find a convenient player widget to use for prelistening and sharing. Thanks so much, guys!

666 – The Moment is Here! ;)


Whooooaaaa – not to be immodest, but … we somehow all kinda sensed this number would eventually happen, didn’t we? (Well, in case of faith in me and my stuff, that is) ;-)
So… without further comment, here it is:

Welcome to my new friends and supporters, shoutout to the previous ones! Whoohoo!

P.S. Notice something else that was funny about the number…? ;) (Hint – it’s all in the comments… ;))
