Autobiography


2009_June_17__-_3_days_to_65th_Birthday.jpg

A nomad, a wanderer, lover of everything beautiful. A lover of life, wine, exotic and forgotten places, hidden corners, and small things that could be beautiful. A lover of stars, mountain tops, little kisses, and voices from around the planet.

Vic Schoen, My Father


Album_Cover_-_Andrews_Sisters.jpg

Composer, Arranger, Conductor

"Vic Schoen, the man who had been identified with the Andrews sisters for over a decade, and whose orchestra had accompanied the girls in over 90% of their recordings, parted from the trio in late 1951. He went on to work with several other artists, producing major hits, including Patti Page's "Old Cape Cod" and the Weavers' "On Top Of Old Smokey". But never again was the maestro to become so well associated with another singer as he and his band had become with the sisters. Schoen eventually married and divorced Kay Starr, then wed Marion Hutton of Glen Miller fame (Betty Hutton's sister).
Although Schoen's decision to leave the girls was not forced, it was nevertheless traumatic, especially for the trio, who sorely missed him and his remarkable skill at arranging music."

...........from 'Swing It: The Andrew Sisters Story', p.136

"For years, the Vic Schoen Orchestra played music that at least approached the beauty and variety of a rainbow, but historically, the ensemble is about as elusive as that phenomenon in the sky."
----------Big Band Reader, p.266.

Ella Fitzgerald's 1945 scat recording of "Flying Home" arranged by Vic Schoen would later be described by The New York Times as "one of the most influential vocal jazz records of the decade....

My Family Past


Nelson_Little_Sr__-_born_July_1870_in_New_York2C_photo_circa_1930.jpg

My mother's family is French Canadian (Quebec), the Petits and the Rolands, probably from France about 200 years ago. My father's family came from Poland via Germany in 1891. My Polish great great grandfather changed his name from Leopold Schein to Louis Schoen in 1899. He was married to a Hungarian woman named Jennie Goldman. From his 7 children, came at least 27 families, including my grandfather Harry.

Manmade Beauty is offensive495 views
to observe beauty is divine

we must celebrate the birth of everything most beautiful

from insignificance to awful beauty

from puberty to the next life we must rock n'roll

and observe beauty


a stone overturned

a tree stump in the forest

broken yellowed teeth

concrete covers the earth

The model welcomes the invasive eye

that wants to capture everything about her

she dared the camera to come closer

she said “here I am, look at me”

the camera found great beauty, and retreated

half closed it’s eye and pondered what it had seen

beauty encountered is always remembered.

in the Bhutan

in the Tristan Da Cunha

spit out particles of me

in another time and place


I am lost, and I am found

I am helpless, and I am strong

your face and body are my template

my art


I love watching you move

seeing the intensity you create for the camera

creating visual intimacy between us

to see feelings you didn't realize were there

so dramatically

(you didn't realize how beautiful you are, did you?)


we are dancing together when we work

in new ways not visualized before


it is beyond beauty when neither of us

knows what's coming next

but our anticipation is a jagged edge

tells me I am funny and mean at the same time

while her eyes dance at me

a smile begins but is never completed



emerging from her cocoon, the cute lab girl

becomes a woman of the world to devastating effect

causing everyone near her to become weak with longing

women feel the power of her beauty

a brunette with voluminous hair smiles

wants to kiss her madly



Adriana Reyna is a beautiful name

she's here to conquer the world
