Review from a Friend!
(below) It is gratifying to know that
someone sends a response with words and thoughts that I have been trying to
project comes into reality. Having to
work alone with no real support from society is difficult and almost impossible
at times. I wonder why I am doing this! But when words come back to me that I am
communicating something positive maybe the word will get out and my life’s work
will have meaning in society not just for me. Our musical art is a mirror of
the mental condition of our society. The
purpose of art is to set a mental health standard (
Thanks very much for your Greg's music website.
I agree with you that labor and gain should supplement each other. Your work takes efforts and talent, benefits the society and musicians like you with good moral character nowadays are hard to find.
Your Jazz music is so peaceful,
non-violent, non-sexual and all about nature and an embodiment of calmness
and wisdom. Countries like
I am very proud of you being as a unique and solo music performer. Just like flu being widespread, I believe that not all popular things or music out there are necessary of good things; the best things always seem rare. I hope more and more people would hear your voice and be aware that not all musicians in modern time are morons, playing music of all kinds just for the sake of money and caring little for morality.

I really like what
John said that my music is non-violent and peaceful. So much I hear of videos and rock music is of
violence, sex, and aggressive behavior.
Last week I came up with statement call modern pop culture, peer pressure music. I think this describes what going through life is all about. How much can we separate ourselves from peer pressure behavior or group behavior? How can we really have our own beliefs free and independent to see things that are true and not false or half truths? The problem is that we are exposed to so much ignorance it is hard and difficult to separate a lower point of view from a higher point of view. Especially when our beer drinking bodies say why do you want to listen to that music?
Anyway, just a few words about peer pressure music. Thanks for reading. Good Luck with your life development only you can change it if you want.
Well, I have over 70 songs on my website for you to listen to. It is a composite of my life’s work mostly in jazz. Since jazz is easier to produce than classical music. You can visit my web-page to listen to over five hours of music. http://greghenrywaters.com/mp3 I have four classical pieces for you to listen too.
I started out playing Stan Kenton’s
Well, now you can listen to a cross section of my life’s
experience in music from
So how can I make my own music when I have such a rich
background with so many musicians and groups with all their own ideas? Well, I tell you it wasn’t easy and if not
Well, my point is this last year has helped me review my music and helped improved my website and trying to learn and understand a new culture.
This music on my website all recording within the last month or two is a reflection of my life’s work over 50 years of experience. It is a wonder to me that I was able to record these performances and have some kind of record of my life’s work. I judge my performance and compositions the best I can from my experiences in music and knowledge of the history of harmony, melody and styles. I know that it is my music and it is real. In many ways it is completely original in style selections of notes, harmony and melody when I perform my songs and compositions. I think my interpretations of popular classical standards are individualistic too. I have listened to them many times and have cut out or deleted the files I do not like or think are not up to standard. I hope you compare my sound and compositions to other artists and send me a review or and opinion. I do get a few once in awhile.
I want to record up to 24 hours of music if I have the
time. I am looking for a record company
to pick me up so I can get world wide distribution, but I have never been too
lucky on this front.
Well, when I was in the six grade I decided on wanted to be
a performer of music and composer. Now I
am 61 years old and I can say I have done that.
On the web, you can view the
composition list at the
over ten years now i have been trying to put
A high standard is a difficult thing to demand of yourself, but it is better to have a high
standard and fail in reaching it, than not to have a standard at all or to have a low and petty standard.
