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.
New Release! A digital album of my music for mid-size jazz ensemble is available at Bandcamp. The 7-track album is $7. The music can be streamed (with the free Bandcamp app) or downloaded. As another option, individual recordings are $1 per track. Preview the music for free on this audio player.
Performing and licensing
Musicians interested in performing my originals can write to me from Contact. Lead sheets and ensemble scores & parts are for sale at the Store. Additionally, my recordings can be licensed for video, film, TV, theater, and other uses. 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 West Virginia music projects, links to artistic friends, and a video about our farmhouse.
