Roger Aldridge, Composer
Jazz, Tango, Blues, New Music, Roots Music, and more....
Think of my website as a performance center where people from many countries can listen to this music. A variety of groups are performing, from solo guitar to a large jazz orchestra, and there are many kinds of music to explore.
Today's Featured Music
A Ballad For T is a dedication to Thelonious Monk for his great music and inspiration. I have a long list of music heroes. Monk is one of those in the top tier. Recorded by David Arivett, piano. Note: The recording is a tune demo, not a full-length performance.
Performing and licensing
Musicians interested in performing my originals can write to me from Contact. Recordings and sheet music are available on the Store page. Additionally, my recordings can be used in video, film, TV, and theater. See Music Licensing for details.
Maryland and West Virginia
Nancy and I divide our time between Olney, Maryland and Morgan County, West Virginia. This area, with the Appalachian Mountains and Chesapeake Bay, is a deep source of inspiration for my music. The Morgan County page has several of my WV music projects, links to artistic friends, and a video about our farmhouse.
