His track "I want Freedom" taken from his fourth album is part of Apple Inc.'s iPhoto 10 and iPhoto 11 software.

His 1999 album The Man with a Suitcase was part of a trend in the late 1990s of "imaginary soundtracks", compositions created to accompany films that did not actually exist. In the soundtrack, he attempted to give homage to works of the 60s and 70s such as The Avengers and Mission Impossible with a mixture of jazz, pop, rock and funk.
