Pepper’s Blues

Pepper’s Blues” is an original 12-bar blues in a jazzy, swing, classic rock style. I played the guitar and bass parts (on screeen) and programmed the drum and organ parts.

We Few

“We Few” is an original jazz/fusion composition that I wrote back in 2011, during my “Palindrome” period. The guitar part shows has some country influence. I think this is one of my better original tunes.

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.

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.
