Trebor - the Original Naked Kitty / Trebor occasionally exhibited ancient Roman tendencies. I once saw him eat until he had to make room for more, which he did (right next to the food dish). We kept him on a diet after that.

 

 


FREE JAZZ mp3s

I have included a variety of mp3s from different times, groups and styles*. Help yourself to the buffet, and feel free to pass them along. I hope you enjoy them. You will need an mp3 player, which are abundant (and free) on the internet. I have quite a few that do a fine job, and I'm sure there are more.  

*Please note - these are NOT samples from CDs currently for sale. Many of the 64kbps files are from sessions in the 1980's and 1990's that are here for fun, education, and experimentation, not as samples of my current work. To hear samples from current CDs, check to see if there are album samples here or on the CD sales page, and if not, there will be samples of the first two minutes of most songs on the CD Baby page. Sadly, I don't give away the music that I am selling.
