Diem in Monimentum

“Diem in Monimentum” marks my return to Smooth Jazz. I’m not sure how long this return will last.

You Must Be

“You Must Be” is an experiment. Having just finished it, I’m not sure how I think it turned out. Perhaps you can let me know what you think.

The track is something of a mashup of several of my major influences: Smooth Jazz, Jazz Fusion, 80’s Pop Ballads, and Hank Marvin with the Shadows.

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!

Normal Form

“Normal Form” is an easy-going rock instrumental with some jazz touches. I began it thinking it would be more in a classic-rock vein, but I think that — other than the B-3 — it turned out a bit more seventies/Steely Dan-ish.

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.
