ABOUT THE ARTIST & NEWS
GILBERT ENGLE Eclectic | Prolific Avant-Garde Composer

I have been composing music for over 30 years and creating art for 25+ years.  With over 600 music compositions, 50 albums, 200 visual works and 80 paintings completed so far, I have enjoyed a small but dedicated fan base. Backing to devote full time to my passions, I built the NewJazzMedia.com portal to provide free access to most of my completed and upcoming works and to share my passion with a global audience.  I was a highly sought after Java programmer, but retired at age 47 to dedicate my life to creating works of art and music, to inspire creativity in others seeking to express their own creativity.

My music compositions include rock, jazz rock, blue grass, jazz blue grass, orchestra, orchestra with drums, synthesizer performances, jazz fusion, dance, classical guitar, piano sonatas, jazz rock with female vocals, big band jazz, guitar fusion, jazz quintets, and one live album. Many of the recordings feature top performers from the mid-Atlantic area. I have also completed over 80 acrylic paintings and more than 200 eclectic digital images. Everything is observable on my Showroom. Stay tuned to discover my works on the first set of reggae compositions, while you enjoy the prolific wonders of my art and music. I have an E=mc2 tattoo on my left arm. This equation represents beauty, truth, creativity, destruction, and terror. Everything is kind of in that equation.
