"Human Nature" - Excerpt - Symph.Score-4 Clint Holmes A great arrangement by Jeff Neiman - my job was to add strings, french horns, woodwinds and percussion  for symphony pops performance  Clint also wanted an "orchestral soli  section " where the symphony would take over for 12 bars in a baroque feel and then segway back into the pop arrangement. This was a fun challenge and it turned out really nice.

"Love Wont Let Me Wait" - Big Band R&B excerpt Ron Crews This is a classic 70's soul tune. I wanted to give it an exciting  "Bill Chase" type of intro and then melt down into a tasteful bed to give Ron plenty of room to sing. Some nice 5 reed counterpoint in there also.

"Native New Yorker" - Excerpt From Score Denny Randell Denny is one of the great pop writers of our time. This tune is a work of art from the late 70's. Recorded live with expert musicianship, arranging, copying and production. My job here was to document it for  Denny's catalog. Today's pop hits can't compete with this level of artistry.
