In 1998 I met person who changed my music It was pianist Reggie Thomas I learned from him a lot and started discover jazz music This was time when I composed first tune for the “Feelings” - “Bossanova" - title changed few years later to "Bossanova 4 my wife” This was also my first jazz composition:)
On My Way from the album Feelings (2012) This composition is a little bit tricky;) It was one of my assignment from Berklee College of Music course - Advance Jazz Guitar Improvisation with Bruce Saunders There was already written bass line just the roots (listen to the bass line - there are only root and ocatve notes) and the goal was to write chords for it and melody So I composed a tune from it I tried my best to hide the technical things and bring melody and athmosphere on the first plan
Blue Rose from the album Feelings (2012) This composition was inspired by famous guitar piece - Romance de Amor by Vicente Gomez
