  • Happy Birthday, Donald Brown!

    March 28, 2024: A big one for Donald Brown! Happy 70th Birthday, Donald.

    Last week (March 22) was the recording anniversary of Donald's 1990 album "People Music." We're releasing five today: The Biscuit Man, Prism, I Love It When You Dance That Way, Graylon, and Booker T. The last of these, from a solo piano recording, is available as a melody transcription. I Love It When You Dance That Way has both instrumental and vocal melody choruses on the original recording; both instrumental and vocal lead sheets are available. More songs from this album are coming soon, and we will be celebrating more of Donald's album releases throughout this year.

  • More Renee Rosnes anniversaries!

    March 12 and 13, 2024, mark the 27th anniversary of the sessions for "As We Are Now," Renee Rosnes' fifth album as a leader. Renee recorded six of her compositions on this album; we are releasing three today, and the other three will be available very soon. This all-star quartet album features Renee with saxophonist Chris Potter, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Jack DeJohnette.

    Newly added today are the title track As We Are Now, a beautiful ballad, and Bulldog's Chicken Run and Black Holes - both challenging yet fun medium-up songs with intricate quartet arrangements. Besides lead sheets for all three, we have a piano melody part for As We Are Now, a condensed score and bass part for Bulldog's Chicken Run, and piano and bass parts for Black Holes.
