Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The vibrant colors, the texture, the emotion, Ted DeGrazia's paintings tell compelling stories of the American southwest, stories that have touched tucsonans for decades.

But a few years ago a discovery was made that changed the way people look at Ted DeGrazia.

An employee at DeGrazia's Gallery in the Sun was looking through archives and found a sheet of music, penned by DeGrazia in the early 1930s.

Friday night the DeGrazia foundation released a compilation of the songs in a CD titled "Please Remember Me."
