Chuloe

“Chuloe” is a rumination and tribute to jazz guitarist/composer/producer Chuck Loeb, who passed away from cancer earlier this week.

Although I don’t consider him a major influence on my own work, I was an enormous admirer of his. One of the hallmarks of his music — no matter his role — was a perfect balance of taste, clarity, and virtuosity.

I will miss him.

Smooth Shadow

“Smooth Shadow” is an original instrumental that combines two of the styles in which I work. The harmonic and rhythmic setting is like a smooth jazz or 80’s ballad, while the melody is a bit more simple…in a sixties guitar style similar to Hank Marvin of the Shadows.

Big Hairy Year

“Big Hairy Year” is an original jazz/rock/funk/fusion composition.

I decided on the this title because 2017 is a major milestone year for me in a number of ways:

1. My wife and I both turn 65
2. It is the 100th anniversary of my father’s birth
3. I am retiring this year
4. I got my first black belt in Karate 10 years ago ( I am now a 4th degree master)
5. My father passed away 15 years ago
6. My mother passed away 10 years ago
