Two new tunes: Rosie & Intervallic

July 6, 2013 at 1:35 pm 2 comments

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve written and recorded a couple of new tracks.  Although both are in my usual format of guitar, keys, bass and drums, they are also a little different for me – although in different ways.

The first is called “Rosie”.  What is different about this number is that it is, essentially, straight ahead jazz with a straight ahead sound featuring acoustic piano and bass. It also has a prominent piano solo.

The second is a new tune I call “Intervallic”.  It is . It features my new 6-string bass in an important supporting role, as well as a short solo.

What different about this is that it may be a bit edgier than much of my material.

    Hi man, Rosie is cool tune, quite different from the usual forays these days, I like it a lot, but there’s a little too much bass for me, also sounds like it got reverb on it in places. I don’t know if it’s notes running together to give that illusion or what. Nice & fat, but kind of over-amping my little Bowers & Wilkins speakers, which normally handle a lot of bass, no problem.

    Intervallic, interesting word/title ” From Old French entrevalle, based on Latin intervallum ‘space between ramparts, interval,’ from inter- ‘between’ + vallum ‘rampart.’” Okay… 😉 I don’t care for the intro particularly, but it gets there msucially if one is patient. Good album cut, kinda need to sneak it in on the listener, but that’s just my opinion.

    I like where you’re going these days, trying for something unique, and doing it. Keep up the good work man, I’ll keep listening. 🙂

      Hey Zeek — Thanks for listening and the comments. I agree that I need to bring down the bass a bit on Rosie. Intervallic began as an experiment to use the extended range and chordal capabilities of the 6-string bass. But the title is what it is because the tune is built on 7ths in the A-section, 4ths in the B section, and octaves in the C Section. Always appreciate your taking the time to listen and sent your thoughts my way.
