Studio Upgrade Part 3: 2nd Recording Completed with ProTools/Sibelius Studio

This time, in the interests of spending my time focused on learning the recording studio tools rather than the writing process, I chose to record an arrangement of John Coltrane’s “Impressions”. It is structually and harmonically very simple. This tune was something of a “next step” after Miles Davis introduced the concept with the composition “So What” — which had only chord changes — no real melody. “Impressions” has a tune, however uncomplicated and repetitive.

I’ve also found that these “progressive” jazz tunes from the fifties and sixties take pretty well to being “Rockified”.  I took a similar approach with Herbie Hancock’s “Maiden Voyage”  for my album “Drawn Inward” — arranged for guitar, keys, bass and drums over a driving rock beat.

Here are the links to listen:
