The Green Leaves of Summer

When I was about 10 or 11 years of age, my mom took me to see the movie The Alamo. The soundtrack included a really powerful song called The Green Leaves of Summer

This is my first experience (that I can remember, anyway) of being overwhelmed by the emotion of a piece of music. Goosebumps galore for sure!!

So…..starting in chronological order — roughly — I’m starting a Spotify playlist that shows my musical influences over the years: This is Jerry with his “curator’s cap” on 🙂

The playlist will also include my guitar teachers and mentors over the years, and a few musicians I’ve had the pleasure to play some gigs with. Eventually I want to bring things up to the present day. ENJOY!!!
