My musical mentor -- the person whom I have admired for his meticulous attention to counterpoint, articulation, harmony, and melodic phrasing since I started, in 1983, doing PC music making with the Orchestra-90 music language on the Radio Shack TRS-80 Models III, 4P and later the CoCo's I, II, and III, and even in part with PC Orc 2.1a -- has been Larry Graham Alexander, a "lone star" native of Texas whose clear ability to aurally imagine his music without even having to play a written note of it - proven when his used to send me his original manuscripts which I transcribed, arranged, and recorded his music for a while when he was not able to get to hear it performed - is incredible. And his music has been a continued inspirational resource. Although we have never met except in cyberspace, I hope to help promote his music as much as I can in a goodwill effort for all aspiring serious musicians to benefit from.
The following music arrangements of his are clear demonstrations of his mastery of composition. Although I would consider his style more influenced by classical and jazz than any others (but I have heard blues, country, bluegrass and funk influences), his ability to adapt to others is also very notable. I hope that my own efforts can in part demonstrate aspects of his mastery of form and content shown in all of his musical efforts.
