    • Preface

      These 25 compositions have been tested out in the real world. They have been on tour all over the globe and used for all kinds of purposes.  They’ve been played in concerts at huge festivals, small clubs, and churches, at dances in local town halls, in radio shows, music workshops, master classes in big city music conservatories, and in sessions. Some of my music was composed for wildlife documentaries created by the Danish-French film company, Loke Film, and shown on TV around the world. Many of these tunes can also be found on recordings I’ve made with different bands over the years. Five of these tunes, however, are brand new and I’m pleased to published them here for the very first time.
