Music lead-sheets of Duncan’s Smooth Jazz songs available on this site now!

"Secret Smile" Smooth Jazz Piano Lead-Sheet

“Secret Smile” Lead-Sheet

Instrumentalists! I’m pleased to announce I’m making available sheet-music versions of some of my Smooth-Jazz piano songs from different albums. These can be either printed or downloaded from the DM lead-sheets page on this site. All songs include the main notated melody in the original key, chord symbols and guitar tab. Perfect for piano, guitar and any lead instrument

I’ve posted five of my Smooth Jazz songs up to now.  Secret Smile can be printed straight off the site.  Four others, – Fresh Air (which also includes transcribed solos),  Autumn Mood, Dream Your Dream and Smokee Vibes – can be emailed to you after you fill in a form. All are free! I may make others available later, depending on uptake. Also, please feel to give feedback here and to tell me which tell me songs you’d like a lead-sheet for!

cominSome tracks from my earlier albums “Dream Your Dream” and “Good to Go” get regular air-play on Sky Smooth Jazz 247 in particular, and a lot of people have told me that they really enjoy them but find it hard to buy those on “Good To Go” in particular, either on CD (except for some crazy price!) or as mp3.

This is mainly because that album is from some years ago and the U.S. rights-holders (who are not the original record-company Instinct Records) don’t seem to wish to make it available, despite requests.

However, a good alternative is to buy a compilation called “Comin’ Thru” which is available for a reasonable price on Amazon.com and which includes 15 tracks selected from both that album and the previous one, “Dream Your Dream”. It’s also available on Amazon.co.uk, and other local “Amazons”.

I am also streaming “Good To Go” and other albums from “other albums” page on this site, and also from Soundcloud.

Hope that helps!

Special Offer! 21st July 2014

Special offer! I’m giving away an mp3 version of any one of my previous albums (Dream Your Dream, Good To Go and others)! That’s as a free-gift for any purchase through my website of an mp3 or CD version of my 2013 album “Fresh Air”!  Click on Buy button on homepage left-sidebar.

Some people have contacted me about problems with availability of my previous albums (especially outside U.S.), for example those often heard on Sky.fm smooth-jazz channels, so this is my remedy!

I also have a very few CDs of these albums for sale “as-new”, signed on request. Please contact through website for details.
