A couple of early jazz-fusiony tunes

A couple of early jazz-fusiony tunes

I'm sharing some music I've done. This originated in another thread on Keith Jarrett's rudeness that went way askew.

This is a song called "An Uncommon Prayer" that was recorded way back in 1998 on Adats. 2nd CD from my first studio. 4th CD overall. Pretty much all live. Detrik DeGeer micss on drum OHs. Unfortunately the MP3 here has really screwed with it. Evil Twin/GML on bass. I don't remember much else!

I'm playing guitar. The star of this track is the drummer Alan Hall. Nelson Braxton is on bass, John R. Burr on keyboards and Darius Babazadeh on soprano.

I wrote this in Vienna, sitting in a bar, without an instrument. Living two doors down from Beethovens residence!

Butterfly had asked about me playing a ballad. This is not what he meant, I don't think. But this is a ballad I wrote. From "When Fortresses Fall" - 1st project from my first studio.

Joe Gilman piano, Rick Lotter drums, Darryl C. Anders bass and Carey Avery percussion. Steve Stizzo accordian.

I have not shared any of my music here before. I was thinking how silly that is. So please excuse my impertinence!

Now I'm playing pretty much straight ahead jazz. I want to get back into writing doing more and put out another couple of CDs. Some new stuff!

Let me know. But be kind.

This is one I kind of like, but never got as much attention as some of my other tunes. From "When Fortresses Fall." Jeff Chimenti on keyboards, who's now with the Dead and Ratdog. Or maybe not the Dead any more . . .

OK. I'm done.

Rap huh? I'd love to. Create some thunderous jazz undercurent and go crazy on top and inbetween with some rhythm all sideways. I'd love that.

Thanks for the compliment.

192? I was trying to save space. Files too big. Thanks for the tip. I know nothing about MP3s.

Whoops you got me, I meant 192. You can use free websites to host mp3's that are longer. Just Google - free mp3 hosting and you'll find a bunch that will let you host big files for free. Keep up that great playing and let me know when you comin out to the East Coast.

Hi there, nice tunes!
It reminds me of the days I attended the musical institute I was playing stuff like this, now I am in a completely different direction.
I like your sound and your expression, this sort of music can also be great.
Thanks for reminding me

murergobben -

Thanks! Where did you go to the Musical Institute? I taught at one in Vienna in the mid 90s. Oh, you mean MI in LA? I taught at the American Institute of Music, (AIM) that was based on those schools. It's no longer.

Well thanks regarding ths tunes. They old now and dated. But I did them and I still like them.

Yip henry takes me back to the good old days of grp records......and the first tune has that metheny vibe. Great arrangements, performances. Impressed you recorded them as well....I think that's something corea, metheny et all can't claim....you should be very proud. Back in the 90's this kind of stuff was really my thing so it's great to hear it again straight from the horses' mouth. I think you really should do another cd that reflects where u are now...go for it!

Hi again henry I went in a town called Kolding in Denmark so not in LA - sadly I had to dropout because I couldnt keep up with both working as a bricklayer and studying but it dosnt matter, maybe it wasnt me. I´m planning to educate as a sound engineer now and will maybe try to get in at the academy in Copenhagen.
Are you also producing music today or are you just playing?
Nice weekend

Thanks for the kind words!!Necessity is the mother of invention. The only reason Corea and Metheny didn't engineer their own CD was because they didn't HAVE TO! It's hard. I'm much rather have had a crew like they do. But you know . . .

I definitely want to record another couple or three or four that reflect the various parts of my points of views now. It's just finding the time. I started putting my studio together for the same reasons everyone else did. More control over my music. But getting side tracked into technical stuff and gear acquisition as well as life and family takes time away from the focus. Or the goal gets out of focus! I just need to spend some time to write music. That's what it comes down to. Everything else follows from that.

Thanks. I am proud I suppose. I don't listen to me. Putting these songs and snippets up has kind of been fun because it reminds me what I do. I haven't heard any of this stuff for a very long time! Not bad. It's old though. From another life . . .

Now? I'm playing as much as I can. Not a huge demand for jazz. I do some remote recording. I teach guitar and music at a community college. Some producing. We have a small but surprisingly very good jazz community here in Sacramento and surrounding environs. It's hidden, unfortunately. But the community is supportive. My wife is supportive. My kids are supportive. People know and respect me. I respect them. Who could ask for more?

Yeah, you have a nice weekend too!

Thank you very much!

Can someone explain something for me? How can I have 1061, 1202 and 858 listens on three different songs and only have 147 or so views of this thread? I think something is broken.

There was a thread a while back where folks were wondering where all the good new music was. I suggested that you get the newest Derek Trucks Band cd "Songlines" (not the DVD), and if you didn't like it, I'd buy it from you... offer still stands!
