   As Woody Allen said in his movie "you might careless about this music" or have no appreciation for it, but I have a right to talk about it. You can read my reviews of other artists at my jazz site.    http://www.greghenrywaters.com/index2.html   Look for the review section on this page. In  this way you can understand more about my beliefs about music as an art form and not a way to just promote money and other forms of entertainment etc. 

"Here is a review from one of my listeners."  Greg Henry Waters

¨Greg, I found a store downtown that downloaded it and burned it onto a cd all for just ten dollars. I loved that sax song. It sounded like a stallion galloping. That was my vision when I heard that song. Mythical and mystical quality to it. A real treasure."
Paul Collins, Toronto, Ontario Canada

A tribute

to Paul Litrenta

a friend and professional musician. trumpet  (1942-2004)

My Personal Opinion about Music

"I believe that music was sent to us from a divine source and that all real music is a glorification of God and not the glorification of Man. So much of our society has destroyed the true meaning of music. Music is not sex, popular dance, or other choices of man, but is the spirit of God and only of God. These are my personal opinions and I know that these ideas have very little meaning and support in our society.

However, I believe that instrumental music as composed by Bach in his Brandenburg Concertos is the closes example of this idea.

This is why pure instrumental music is so close to The Spirit of Nature and The Spirit of Life or "The Nameless God" as founded in all true religions.


May a few individuals stand for the pure art of music so that its voice will ring out for its affirmation. I have tried my best to meet this challenge.

 But I only see how much I have failed in our modern age of computers and CD's from the entertainment industry and established concert halls."

If you have any problems please let me know and e-mail me about it greg@www.greghenrywaters.com

  

 

My  other music is at the American Music Center in New York and the original scores and TV Tapes are at the University of North Texas Music Library, Denton Texas.


Reviews from my LPs in the 80's

  • "Reedman Waters is a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and gifted composer whose music deserves to be heard more widely."

  • The Observation Post, Frederic Seaman, New York City
  •  
  • "Waters was unknown to this reviewer, but his fine album, Mission, made me really sit up and take notice. Greg is a musician of uncommon ability."
  •  
    Bronx News, Highlights in Jazz, Jack Kleinsinger
  •  
  • "Waters Mission Album stands among such artists as Mary Lou William's, George Russell, Phil Woods, Beaver Harris, Jimmy Guiffre and others in this class."
  •  
    Bullets, Detroit Sun
  •

If you need a mp3 player you can download one at http://www.winamp.com In the winamp program you have to go to options/Preferences directory and choose playback number four down because it plays all types of files not the wave format playback file only.  Also it has a write program to produce CD's from mp3 files and wave files, three down. If you use the wave playback file I am sure the quality is not as good so make sure for playback you are on four down. 

 


Please enjoy the music I hope it is new and different for you which is my purpose and has excellent quality of music too which is my purpose.
