There are a number of places on the web where you can listen to or buy my music. Check out the following.

Apple Music

Apple Music is a streaming service that allows you to listen to over 75 million songs. It also includes access to the iTunes store to allow you to purchase music.

Bandcamp (preferred)

Bandcamp is an online record store and music community where passionate fans discover, connect with, and directly support the artists they love.


Music, radio and podcasts, all free. Listen online or download the iHeartRadio App.


SoundCloud is free platform for listening to music and other audio. This is where I post work in progress and pieces that don’t appear anywhere else.


Spotify is a digital music, podcast, and video service that gives you access to millions of songs and other content from creators all over the world. It offers both free and paid services.


YouTube is a video sharing and social media platform.

Here are a couple of things that are only available here.


1'18", John Zielinski and Jonathan Toerber

During one of the tracking sessions for what became 1994's Still Lazy After All These Years (an installment of The IGKNOWS The Broadcast That Never Was Club) Jonny Splatter played a drum riff for me and asked what I could do with it. The first thing that hit me was the title. After that came the theme, orchestration and performance. This is the result as it became the pad for Jonny's closing of that recording.


3’47”, Michael Modjeski

This tune was written by my friend Michael Modjeski. The recording (done as a demo at Studio West in Chicago) features the core of what used to be the band Attitudes: Bob Bolanowski (bass); John Horvath (drums); Michael Modjeski (guitar); and Ron Ziolkowski (piano). I contributed the soprano and tenor saxophone parts.
