This is my first new composition in quite a while. Hopefully there will be much more to come over the summer. This one is called “Burgh Style”, although admittedly there isn’t anything particularly Pittsburgh about it. I just liked the sound of the title. It’s a jazz/rock/funk fusion number, set for a guitar, piano, bass & drums group. As is typical for my work, I played the guitar and bass parts and programmed the others.
I hope you’ll give it a listen, and perhaps comment on it, “like” it or “share” it. Below the video is a plain MP3 link if you’d prefer that.
After a fairly long creative dry spell, I thought I’d try a cover of what is, I think, a really beautiful tune, “The Lady in My Life”. Composed by Rod Templeton and originally released on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, it is the only track from that album NOT released as a single.
This is another dance piece from the 1610 collection, Varietie of Lute Lessons. It was performed with a capo on the 3rd fret and the third string tuned down 1/2 step.
This delightful dance piece is from the collection “Varietie of Lute Lessons”, compiled in 1610. Sir John Smith, his Almain, a stately dance, was composed for the Lute by the great English composer John Dowland (1563 – 1626), also noted for his wonderful Lute-accompanied art songs.
