“So consider this my time to not be me, to take a moment and pretend I am a great showman, a broadway romanticist. Not worrying about a song’s function but simply enjoying the melody, or the everlasting power of a love song.” –AL



‘I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon’ was written by Jeff Moss, and the song was sung by Jim Henson as “Ernie” (from “Sesame Street”).

Claude Rosen:
What’s this? Jazz? Some strange French soundtrack? Is that a Casio MT-100? Where’s the solo? His own compositions began in a traditional jazz context but now are evolving into a more simple form: leaving out the improvisation and focusing on sonics and melody. He has shared with me some even newer recordings in which we hear some singing from Mr. Rosen. What I love best about his music is that it floats between two well known genres yet defies them both.
