Creator Commentary
Patrick Riley, though an undiscovered compositional voice, has been a very active educator and performer of music throughout his career. As a composer, Riley often attempts to incorporate elements of the styles he performed frequently, which include jazz, Latin, and rock. Riley’s compositions are vastly worthy of musical and intellectual analysis for his broad usage of style blending and sensitive musicality. Review was written by Jeff Kirkpatrick.
