In past, saints marched - proceeding celebratorily to their anointed destination for hallowed reasons. But of late, it has been holier to limit outings, and more responsibly celebrate and consecrate in place. And so, these saints do not march - they stay at home.

Featuring unaccompanied clarinet.

Kitty on a cruise ship, what'll it ever do there? Knock things overboard! The day is the night and the night is the day - and it's not even that hard. Beware felines who bop things in the night, lest something unintentionally disembark.

This bop-gypsy fusion features acoustic and electric guitars, acoustic bass, piano, and drums.

The world is pretty complicated - largely because it both changes and doesn't. But, in at least a few good ways, some things have been changing lately. And though there is far to go and much to do, we should celebrate when things ameliorate. I guess I'll go back to Georgia!

Featuring upright bass, saxophones, trombones, percussion, piano, and solo trumpet.

It's come together - mostly. The outline is apparent, the conclusion intimated - but something is still missing. Resolution requires more than crispness, it requires intentional composition of requisite elements. For now, we will trace around it - it is upon the perceiver to mentally consummate.

Featuring unaccompanied clarinet.

Fruit has great nutrition to behold, or at least that is what we are told. Consume it for your health, gain nutrients to fortify yourself. Does this hold true regardless of hue? Let us ask a banana, blue.

Featuring 60s-inspired electric guitar, bass, drums, whistlers, harmonica, studio strings, and keys.

Grains of sand are both transient and permanent. They last, and spread, and shift, and vanish. We are told sand keeps footprints, warned not to build on it - yet in its unsettled nature it will outlast us all.

Featuring clarinet and four notes.

Hang on.

Hang out. Hang low. Hangman. Hang up. Hang glide. Hang by a thread.

Hang a huey. Hang a louie. Hang a u-ie. Hang about. Hang back. Hang behind.

Hang nail. Hang in effigy. Hang ten. Hang over. Hang of it. Hang noodles on your ears.

Hang it all. Hang your hat. Hang a right. Hang in there. Hang out your shingle. Hang out to dry.

Featuring electric guitar, drums, upright bass, and vocal pads.

Is the pious loved by the gods because it is pious, or is it pious because it is loved by the gods? In the former, divinity possesses judgment but lacks impact, and in the latter it is potent but arbitrary. A king commanding the sun to set, or a capricious despot enforcing whims - neither alternative appeals. Perhaps deeper consideration of the nature of things is needed to resolve this.

What is this thing called art? Is it a means to get at truth and transcendence, or a guise with which to say something we want to anyway?

This contrafact of Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love" features rockabilly style electric bass, guitars, piano, and drums.

It's not easy being number one. You always end up playing second fiddle, reliably supporting and waiting for your time to shine. And that time will come - in the second verse, with the next generation of this trek through the stars.

This jazz swing chart features vibraphone, trombone, upright bass, brushed drums, and piano.

Passing through, sounds askew. Take your cue, there's much to do. We cut to something brand-new. A Wind Blue.

This minor blues waltz features tenor saxophone, upright bass, piano, and brushed drums.

You don't need a destination to have a reason to take a hike. A pleasant walk through a quiet forest glen is just the ticket for a relaxing afternoon, appreciating the simple things and seeing the appealing ones.

Featuring clarinet, piano, upright bass, guitar, and brushed drums.

I am a bee in a flat. I like wearing my hat. I have a very cool cat. He is fat, takes my honey like that.

Bee cool and enjoy this relaxing track, featuring soprano saxophone, jazz guitar, upright bass, piano, and jazz drum kit.

Blues are better with friends - voices joining together, commiseratively celebrating sundry circumstances. The late great mastodon may seem an odd emblem of social interaction, but its prehistoric ways have a lot to teach us. Featuring an amiable collection of instruments - clarinet, upright bass, piano, mallet-played drum kit, and flugelhorn.
