I love taking photos and with smart phones, you can get some pretty amazing shots. They say a “picture is worth a thousand words” I say when you add music, you’ve added depth to the conversation. These videos are mostly slide shows of beautiful locations or of musical instruments, guitars keyboards and pianos.
A wrote this ballad many years ago as a straight ahead guitar picking song. Over the years I’ve wanted to release it but just couldn’t find the right string sounds until now. Summer love could be considered an ambient or movie theme track but I love it. The string arrangement took lots of time but I think the drums where the biggest challenge. Programming the breaks and transitions is always challenge but is also one of my favorite parts. Being able to hear what you want and then struggle to make it happen is very rewarding. All of the animated scenic shots in this video I found for free on various websites. the rest are photos I’ve taken and animation I created.
You will find this track on my ninth album “I’m gonna let it ride”. The album has eight cool tracks with a mix of Ballads, Blues and Smooth Jazz. Check out Never meant to make you cry, I miss youand the title track I’m gonna let it ride.
A good friend of mine turned me onto them and I am now hocked. You have to give this group a listen. Snarky Puppy shouldn’t be called a band, they are more of jazz-rock fusion orchestra putting together some amazing music.
The way you move, is a blues jam with a hot bass line and guitar work. Sometimes it only takes the right drum track of bass line to get a song moving. With “The way you move” it was a little of both. I started playing around with some drum tracks and next thing I know, I grad the bass and start laying it down. Next came the rhythm guitar and everything fell into place. This is a funky blues grove that has a lot of energy and I hope you enjoy it.
For this months featured tracks post or EP I thought I would include the videos for the tracks along with the sample tracks for you to enjoy.
For May I’ve put together a few of my favorite tracks and ones that I have some exciting feed back from fans on. From what I believe is one of my best albums too date, I’m gonna let it ride. We have Solitude, Your Kiss, Never meant to make you cry, and I’m gonna let it ride. A good mix of ballad’s, blues and smooth jazz songs to take you into summer.
Jessie’s Jam a great smooth jazz jam and one of my favorites from the album R E’s Style a great album with a wide range of music.
5 great tracks, I hope you enjoy the music and the videos.
