YEAR OF THE ALBUM - I remember when productive recording artists like Elton John and the Beatles released an album a year, often two per year. I started 2016 with two new albums prepared for release and ended up with four, one per season: winter - The Wild Bird Flies, jazz piano trio; spring - Stabat Mater, live recording from Japan, for choir/piano/strings; summer - Silencer, solo piano meditations; autumn - The B3z, infamous Hammond organ-based rock/soul band (release: October). In addition, the "I wish it was an album" Winter Coat that I assembled for YouTube in January (as good as any of the "official" albums) and the recently completed solo piano Singing I'm saving for 2017.
Biggest possible thanks to all the music dealerships, instrumentalists, singers, music teachers and choirs around the world who've found their way to this website to order Dobrogosz scores, sheet music or CDs - as our humble little Sand Castle Music Inc celebrates its 2000th order!
