Fields of Gold

This is my instrumental cover of “Fields of Gold”, which was written and first recorded by Sting. It first appeared on his 1993 album “Ten Summoner’s Tales”. Many musical artists have covered the song, including Hank Marvin on his 2007 album “Guitar Man”.

It’s Getting Late

“It’s Getting Late” is an original instrumental composition intended to be similar in mood to a “Sleepwalk-style”, “slow-dance” number the Shadows or Ventures might have recorded in the very early 1960s.

A House is Not a Home

This is my instrumental cover of “A House is Not a Home”, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David for the 1964 movie of the same name. It was first recorded by Dionne Warwick that year. The version in the film was by Brook Benton. It was a very big hit for Luther Vandross in 1981. It has also proven popular with jazz artists, with version by Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Joe Sample, and Elaine Elias, among others. In my arrangement, I tried to imagine how the Shadows or Hank Marvin might approach the tune.
