A Living Trust

“A Living Trust” is an original composition in a classic rock vein…sort of an Allman Brothers style ballad. There is even a section which could be turned into an extended jam — although I did not do that here.

Warmed Up

“Warmed Up” is an original instrumental featuring three of my Nash guitars:

  1. Les Paul
  2. S-57
  3. PB-57  (not visible in the video)

Is this in a classic-rock or jazz-fusion style? You can decide which and let me know which you think!

Naima

Naima” is a jazz ballad composed by John Coltrane in 1959 and named after his wife, Juanita Naima Grubbs. It first appeared on the landmark album Giant Steps and is notable for its use of a variety of rich chords over a bass pedal.

My  version uses classic rock instrumentation and has a rock feel.

Tobacco Road

Tobacco Road” was written and first recorded by John D. Loudermilk in 1960. Released on Columbia Records, it was not a hit for him, achieving only minor chart success in Australia. Other artists, however, immediately began recording and performing the song.

The English group The Nashville Teens’ garage/blues rock rendering was produced by Mickie Most with the same tough-edged-pop feel that he brought to The Animals’ hits. In this version, “Tobacco Road” was a trans-Atlantic pop hit in 1964, reaching number 6 on the UK singles chart and number 14 on the U.S. singles chart.

“Tobacco Road” has been performed by a great number of other artists. Notable renderings include Lou Rawls,  Jefferson Airplane, Edgar Winter’s White Trash, Eric Burdon & War, Spooky Tooth, Status Quo, Shocking Blue, David Lee Roth, Blues Magoos, Bobbie Gentry, Rare Earth, and Jimi Hendrix.

I Can’t Turn You Loose

I Can’t Turn You Loose” was written and first recorded by Otis Redding. It was released as the B-side to his 1965 single “Just One More Day”. The up-tempo song was a bigger hit on the US R&B chart than its A-side and became one of Redding’s signature songs — often appearing in his live performances.

It is a popular cover tune, done by Wayne Cochran and Edgar Winter. In 1968, the Chambers Brothers’ version of this song reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
