    African-American Spirituals done by Jay Droz in 4 Languages
My attempt here was to sing and play our rich African-American Spirituals for their beautiful spiritual and often double meaning lyrics. Some I developed in other languages in an attempt to convey the same rich lyrical meanings in those languages as best as I could. I have now completed about thirty Spirituals in Polish, the language of my parents who escaped from Poland in 1913 to America to escape similar tyranny and torture from their Russian occupiers of Poland at that time.

Here's a little more about my musical career - Boring, to be sure. Needless to say, it started in 1947 (before you were born, I'm sure) when I served the next 9 years in the U.S. Army Infantry,which included combat in Korea for 2 years, and the rest of the time performing in Army bands in Germany, U.S., Korea and Japan. After discharge, I spent the next three years at the Ohio State University earning a BA degree, playing Sax in bands such as "Eddie Mann", the OSU Concert and Jazz Bands, and meeting and marrying Pat and having our first Son, Chris. After graduation,I worked in the U.S. Federal Govt, for the next 18 years as a computer specialist in Washington, D.C. but I also played and sang in bands like "Doc" Dikeman's Jazz Band and directed Civic Bands in Northern Virginia until 1976, when I could no longer hold my sax or conduct concert bands or do my Federal job due to a tremendous back problem (with two back operations), so I retired the next year from all except singing and a little Sax playing at home.

My first encounter with the piano was in the year 2000, at the age of 71+. It was God's doing all the way. My knowledge of music came from playing the saxophone, not the piano. He showed me how to play (and He is still teaching me!). I started recording on soon thereafter, since my piano playing was still rough, I began to sing the tunes as well. All of this began from 9-11-01, when the Lord told me how to witness for Him and to the World for as long as I live - Praise the Lord!

It all has seemingly worked out for the Glory of God. I have praised Him with about 370 MP3 selections and 250+ Videos so far (7/4/16), and the number of listeners and downloaders on the Net in the World has increased geometrically (1,202,546+). Praise the Lord!

I am thankful to God for His lovingkindness and mercy! The tunes that I have done here for Him consist of a mixture of traditional hymns, new hymns by composers Ralph Merrifield and Rev. Stephen Misarski at spirituals, carols, folk and patriotic songs, and a few original songs which Pat and I composed (with much help from above.), all at These have been done by me in English, Polish, Spanish and Russian. Polish I spoke before English at home with my Polish Mother. Russian and Spanish I learned at Ohio State U. in preparation for work with the U. S. State Department - which didn't work out due to being too old (30+) to take the Entrance Examination.

My eternal habitation will be heaven, since by the grace of God, I was born again about 40 years ago. I have strayed from the Way from time to time, but He has always been faithful to His promise to never leave nor forsake me. Without His grace, I would be doomed! But because of His grace to me, I am looking forward to a glorious eternal future, and am enjoying the abundant life that Jesus promised here and now. By the grace of God, He lives in me. Jesus did everything on the cross necessary to give me a right relationship to the Holy Trinity.

Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart, and He will! Then you too will know for a fact where you will spend eternity! Praying a prayer similar to this one, meant from the heart, is all you need to do to be born again, to pass from death into life, and to change your citizenship from the kingdom of darkness to a citizenship in the Kingdom of Light: "God, I realize I need a Savior. I confess that I have sinned and I know that my sin will keep me out of heaven. I realize there is not one single thing I can do to earn my way into Your heaven. Right now I am placing all, 100 percent of my trust, in Christís death on the cross and resurrection from the dead as payment for my sin. I now accept you as my Lord and Savior, and I commit my life to you. Thank you for forgiving me and giving me your Holy Spirit."
