I hope you are all doing well!
After 30 years of service I am leaving Purchase College. It seems like the right time, I just completed my 30th year teaching at the college and the Jazz Program that I founded completed it's 25th year. It was a great year celebrating all the great students that have gone through our program at Purchase. It was also a time to thank all the great faculty that I have had the honor to work along side and the administrators that I have served under and the staff that have kept the wheels from falling off the bus.
So what's next, you might ask.
My plan is to see what opportunities present themselves and remain open to all possibilities.
In the meantime I am still actively performing. I've started work on my 19th release as band leader. It's going to be a new La Pompe Attack recording!
I have a Wikipedia page, click here to check it out.
You can download or buy a hard copy of my latest CD, "Doug Munro and La Pompe Attack: The Harry Warren Songbook", right here from the website! It's also available at all the regular online outlets.
Here's the PDF version of the booklet from the CD.
Please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you!
Thanks for your support and encouragement!
"Doug Munro has been around the music scene in NY for over 30 years. He is a fiercely independent musician who has forged his own sound on his own terms. Look at his resume and you will find a guitarist, composer, arranger, producer, author, educator of the highest caliber. Doug has worked with a who's who of biggest name's in the NYC music scene over the last three decades. Just when you think you've got him figured out he'll knock down what he's done and start building in a new direction. In just the last 5 years Doug has made soul jazz records with his organ trio, a solo guitar record recorded live with a loop pedal and a full on Gypsy Jazz CD of Holiday songs. A true creative force, Doug Munro has always been more concerned with the music than with the music business. Now, how many people can you say that about?"
