Biography: I am a musician. I studied with jazz legend Jackie McLean from the time i was 17. I taught and played all over the world for many years.  TodayI run my own computer consulting business and play the lead alto chair with Michael Palin and the Other Orchestra every Tuesday in Hartford,  CT. at Blackeyed Sallys on Asylum Ave downtown.

Free music here, recorded with vintage Telefunken and RCA mics, and vintage preamps - (free tracks are full length mp3) http://www.socci.com/blog/my-music
I live in a rural part of central Conneticut on one of the highest hills in the area. We often hear Coyotes at night. Listen to the Coyotes sing.
