The legendary Blue Roses now available for FREE download here:
In 1988, Cherry and Man Parrish wrote this intriguing jazz-edged poetry piece to benefit a grass-roots charity that Cherry was working with at the time, Children In Crisis. It was performed live, with Barb Morrison on sax, for two nights at Capito restaurant in Manhattan, where photographs by Cherry were on exhibition. The trio made this quickie recording of it at Parrish's studio in Brooklyn, in order to raise additional charity money, via sales of cassettes at the live shows. Unfortunately, the master tapes went missing long ago, but thanks to a well-worn cassette saved by the show's director, Tony Zanetta, and digitally remastered by Man Parrish, we can now make this little piece of history available for free download. Please excuse the less than perfect sound quality, and enjoy the journey nonetheless.

Quote from the NOMI SONG Movie:
Man Parrish - Nomi Show performer + Klaus Nomi Music Colaborator -
I was 22 or something, had a loft up on 38th Street in Manhattan, and it was kind of Grand Central for every freak in New York! And just basically playing music, learning how to do stuff, and hanging out in clubs. I think Klaus came up to my loft, he says “I want to do new electronic music,” and I didn’t know if he was sincere or just trying to pick me up. And I thought, well, this guy’s great. Let’s give it a try. We’ll just turn on the tape recorder and see what we can do. We dabbled around a little bit a couple of times, and Klaus sang, and I just -god knows what- made noises in the background and we wound up doing a track called the Nomi Chant, which wound up on the first album.

Shox Lumania Videos (1978 !) posted in the Video Section. Young Man Parrish Appears (only 20 yrs old ! )
Remake (2003) of Gary Neuman's 80's classic hit "CARS". There's a quick MP3 preview of the mixes for free preview. The full versions can be downloaded, in the MP3 INDEX section at the top of this page, in the "singles" section.
AMBIENT MUSIC FOR SLEEP (2003):
This is a great ambient "chill-out" track, that is designed to be "background music" to help you relax, sleep or chill out. Loop this in your MP3 player, and you'll get hours of relaxing, soothing sound. I leave it on all night, at a low volume, and wake up feeling great. Enjoy ( You can find it in the MP3 section above ). Note: "PART 2" was just finished, and is posted.
CLASSICAL MAN (1999):
Beautiful ambient versions of these well known classical tracks:
AVE MARIA, AMAZING GRACE, FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLE BEE, CHOPIN FANTASY, CLAIR DE LUNE, MOONLIGHT SONATA, WALTZ OF THE FLOWERS.
You may not know the individual names, but you'll surely recognize the tracks once you hear them. Again, these tracks are designed to make you relax ! Enjoy ! ( avaliable in the MP3 section, above )
KLAUS NOMI (1980's):
I've added some rare KLAUS NOMI tracks that I've worked on, back in the day ( year 197...ahem !! ).
They are posted in the MP3 section. Hmmm .. Maybe I should do a new Klaus Nomi re-mix. I have to think about that one.....!
Just added several tracks that I produced and wrote parts for, from My 80's #1 chart topping, Euro-Pop Group Man2Man. Here's a quick note: Most of those tracks were done ONLY on an 8 track tape recorder (unlike 24-48 tracks typically used today). When I look back on how full they sounded, for only 8 tracks, it's kind of amazing...Enjoy a trip thru the 80's "High NRG" phase of euro-pop !
MAN PARRISH / IT HAD TO BE YOU
I love Big Band / Swing. So I decided to do a version of the classic/standard "It Had To Be You". I wanted it to sound "real" but also wanted to keep it TOTALLY electronic. It was all done on a Apple Macintosh, using only the internal Macintosh Quicktime Musical Instruments Synthesizer, and the standard "text to speech" system, which are both included with the system software, as an example of what a Mac, and a little creativity can do. Oh yeah...Vocals by "Mac-Intosh". Enjoy !
PAUL PARKER (2003)
Paul is a good friend for many years. On a recient trip to California. Man asked Paul to re-sing his 1980's mega-club hit, "Right On Target". Paul agreed. You can now hear the excellent qualiy of the new version, as well as a second new "jazzy" track called "Dreamer", listed in the MP3 section, under "Paul Parker".
PAMELA STANLEY - EVERYBODY (2003)
Paul Parker wrote the lyrics and asked Pam to sing them. I was out in California visiting Paul, and he played me the Pam demo, this is the result of a few hours, and my trusty Mac laptop. Pam had a series of dance hits in the 80's. Her most noted "Coming Out Of Hiding". I receintly bumped ( quite litterally ) into Pam on a cruise ship this past summer. She looks great, and her voice is better than ever !
