BRIAN Discography Software
BRIAN is a relational data base application that I wrote to compile discographies. It is downloadable from the web here and runs on Windows and Macintosh computers. Find out more about how you too can become obsessed with sessions, songs and sidemen! Download the software at JazzDiscography.com.
Beyond Category Music Catalog Software
Beyond Category is a relational data base application used to catalog a music album collection. The term album is used in the traditional sense of a collection of recorded songs by an artist or group of artists under a single title. That is, a cd, lp, cassette or book of 78s. Beyond Category will store information about the album, songs and composers on the album, and names of other performers on the album. Beyond Category is named with a nod towards Duke Ellington, who truly is beyond category. Download the software right here.
Michael Fitzgerald and I decided to collaborate on a website that would extol the virtues of BRIAN. This website hosts the latest version of BRIAN available for download. We also host and link to hundreds of discographies that have been created using BRIAN. We hope we have accounted for all of them – if not, let us know!
