“Right on Through” is an original I wrote for my junior recital at CSULB (2013). It all started with the initial hook and a desire to write mix-metered jazz/rock fusion. And it ended with lyrics that are deeply personal and contain a lot of hidden meaning.

 

 

Arrangements


Yoko Kanno’s “Car 24” was originally written for the anime Cowboy Bebop. This is my arrangement of it for vocal jazz ensemble (w/drums), performed by CSULB’s PST(2012-2013). For this arrangement, I was awarded a DownBeat Student Award for Undergraduate Jazz Arrangement.


Meredith Wilson’s “Till There Was You”, arranged for and performed by PST 2014-2015.

 

 
Performances


My performance of “St James Infirmary Blues” at my junior recital at CSULB (2013). I based my version of this American folk song off of multiple recordings, including Lou Rawls, Cab Calloway, Jonah Jones, and a little bit of the Preservation Hall (King Britt Remix).


My performance of the Horace Silver tune “Senor Blues” at my junior recital at CSULB (2013).
