by Cy Green & Jimmy Miller (Non-performing songwriters)
There are songs for vocalists and jazz musicians alike.
Please have your sound ON!
This is acoustic music for adults who like to LISTEN to music.
Every artist worth his salt has at least one song he's identified with -
Listen carefully to these original songs composed by Cy Green & Jimmy Miller. They are both self-taught and do not play an instrument. This is not Tin Pan Alley, Be-Bop, Rock, New Age, etc.
Their tunes lie "in between" and don't fit a specific genre.
They specialize in medium to slow tempo melodic songs. Nothing happy. Nothing goofy. Nothing faddish - that's it.
"SLAP ME DOWN"
B Major (No Lyrics)
A1/A2/B/A3 Solos B/C
Please understand these are readings of the tunes - not performances.
There is no pocket or groove on music software versions.
We believe the Pop music world, and the people who run it are in a
"STATE OF SHAMBLES!"
The young are dumb and the old BRAIN DEAD.
It's REHASH, REHASH, REHASH!
The SONGS are secondary -
it's all about the IMAGE of the singer.
The whining passing off as singing is here to stay!
So many great jazz musicians have passed on. From the big names, who are only known in the jazz world, and the fabulous sidemen, to the monsters who laid hidden in studios for years, and the guys who filled the chairs in jazz bands all over the planet. Most of the world never even knew they were ever here. But we always hear about Elvis, Hendrix and Michael Jackson - that is really SAD.
The world needs NEW original JAZZ TUNES.
Young people just don't pay attention to old STANDARDS like we did.
Thinking about putting out a CD or needing something ORIGINAL to perform live? We may have something for you.
This site does not publish sheet music, but plays samples of the MILLER/GREEN catalog for artists and singers to hear. These samples are almost always done with a music software program called FINALE NotePad.
Hear something you like? Give us the TITLE and we will send LEAD SHEET.
This page has the beautiful ballad "MY JOANNE"
In about the last 32 years, the world has been bombarded with the worst possible music in all genres. It's on television, In movies, On the radio, In commercials - everywhere.This does not apply to all, but most of what REACHES THE MASSES.
Before this time, composers and artists contributed a staggering amount of GREAT music. So to speak - they STOLE ALL THE THUNDER!
ARMSTRONG/ELLINGTON/GERSHWIN/PORTER/B.GOODMAN/'BIRD/ MILES/MONK/ SINATRA/ BILL EVANS/ RAY CHARLES/ JOBIM/ The BEATLES/ HENDRIX/ JAMES BROWN etc.
No pop songs are recorded exactly as written. Jazz heads are different, and should be nailed as per composer.
Are you a keyboard player working with a vocalist? Or a group leader doing mainly instrumentals? Either way, we have material to fit both situations. Give our samples a listen and imagine what YOU can do with the songs?
We welcome artists outside the USA to take a stab at our works.
When a music publisher told us "You don't write songs to fit today's market" -
We considered this a compliment!
It was then we quit submitting to publishers because:
1) Publishers in general want HIT material only. (When's the last time you heard a HIT in Jazz?)
2) There are no jazz publishers for nonperforming writers.
3) Established artists won't accept unknown or unsolicited material for fear of where it comes from and lawsuits.
Our songs are not aimed at youth,
but it would be nice to draw them in.
The SONGWRITER publishers told, "You write too persona
We E-Mail LEAD SHEETS of professional quality along with FULL MP3 sample. Just tell us a TITLE. You are under no obligation.

The mood and feel you would like to create is entirely up to YOU in the arrangement. We will have no more creative input.
