Compositions by Greg Henry Waters
Why my collection is Unique and Rare. I have had a dual composing and performing career in that I am both a composer of Classical, Jazz and Experimental
Electronic Music, Produced TV Programs, 30 Education Programs for Adults and Children, Plus 30 Instrumental Performance Jazz Programs for Children and Adult, with
some fusion programs using video and audio.
I was never locked into commercial music composing like a John Williams or Lenny Bernstein. Because I am a pure
Jazz player not a want a be jazz player like so many classical composers try to be. (John Adams for example) Also my classical music is pure classical modern music with my own system of
harmony and form. I do not try to combine the two art forms but keep them separate.
I do not use arrangers or other composers to complete my work like so many film,
Broadway and commercial composers do. It is completely my product.
I am a multi instrumentaist and have had my performances reviewed and complimented
by many Newspapers and Radio Reviews. I have recorded over 28 CD'S using the Clarinet, Flute, Soprano, Alto and Tenor Saxophones. This is rare for I know of no one
who has produced this type of out put.
Recently I have updated my skills with the new form of flute Ensembles. In the last 50 years the flute makers have developed
new and exciting musical instruments. Really mostly known to the flute community. I also have an electronic music studio which I use for my compositions.
I created a 13 piece chamber jazz orchestra which is the only one of its kind with the Alto, Tenor Baritone Saxes with Trumpet, Trombone and Bass Trombone. I ran
the orchestra here in NYC for some three years using all my compositions and arrangements. We performed locally in the New York Area for local concert presentations.
No one in our country has this type of collection and music. It deserves to be continued, TV Shows, Chamber Jazz Orchestra, Classical Performances of my Music.
More development for the Children's music show which is so vital to our health of our nation. I wrote many articles about music in the last 10 years over 90 or more and also made some of it into a Book which one can find on my web site.
My music is Rare, Unique and Special if only given the opportunity to show itself with support from institutions and public. I have traveled and lived in four different countries all adding to my musical experience. USA, Canada, Mexico, ACA, Shenzhen, China
My Recording, Book, Articles, Travels can be found on my Web Site
