Last New Tune of 2011

It’s called “Puff Up”. Nothing too profound here, just some easy-listening smooth jazz with maybe just a little bit of harmonic adventure. The setting is guitar, keyboard, bass and drums. The guitar is my recently acquired Ibanez GB10.

2011 Holiday Music — Lo, How a Rose Ere Blooming

This is a track from my recently released Christmas Album. It is a beautiful carol written by the German composer Micahel Praetorius (1571 – 1621) titled Lo How a Rose Ere Blooming.

2011 Holiday Arrangements – In the Bleak Midwinter

Every year I try to make some new arrangements of seasonal music. It is a limited universe, so I do sometimes wind up repeating myself with respect to the selections. I have a trio arrangement of In the Bleak Midwinter from a few years ago. This one is very different — a traditional jazz chord-melody setting.

The guitar is a 1983 Ibanez GB-10, played through an Acoustic Image Clarus 2R/Raezer’s Edge Stealth 12.
