“Old Friends” Performed Live

Monday, December 29th, 2014

2014 has been a good year, but it’s also been a sad one for me as I’ve lost some of my best and oldest friends. Most of them were friends from way back, and brilliant musicians that never got the recognition they deserved. Here is a song called “Old Friends” which I wrote many years ago, from my album “Spring Rain” performed live at the Jane Mallet Theatre in Toronto, Canada. I dedicate this song to my friends everywhere, but especially to those that I’ve lost this year, and in the past.


“Spring Rain” appears on the album, Spring Rain (a reworked version released in 2003).

The reworked version of Spring Rain, released in 2003 is available on:

Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Kaleidoscopes-Spring-Rain-Hennie-Bekker/dp/B000BW3VW6The original version, released in 1992 will be available digitally in 2015.

Autumn Magic

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Autumn……my favorite time of the year. It’s a time of beauty and gratitude; the gift of beauty that Autumn brings is available to all. Jacky and I usually take a drive down to Vermont around this time of year as it’s especially beautiful down there. This year I found myself too busy to get away, so I spent some time shooting video of the Autumn colors here in Toronto, and set it to the song “Iridescent Morn” from the album Autumn Magic in my Kaleidoscopes series. I hope you enjoy…

If you like the track, or want to buy the whole album, it’s available as a digital download on my website, and individual tracks from the album can be purchased on iTunes.
