Many of you know that most of the reason I became a musician, a pianist and then a composer is because of the great maestro of our time, John Williams. Today is his 85th birthday and I want to send a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY out there into the world for him. Words can't explain how much I adore him, so these links to some of my favorite examples of his work will have to speak to that love! Hope you're having a wonderful day with your family, sir!
