The Last Shadow

“The Last Shadow” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with a somewhat more sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that genre. This one is similar to the style of the Shadows.

Seneca

“Seneca” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with a somewhat more sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that genre. This native-American inspired track is similar to the style of the Shadows, who also did a number of American-Indian themed recordings.

Nivram

“Nivram” (Marvin spelled backwards) was a track from the Shadows 1961 album “The Shadows” — the first album release, which went to #1 on the UK album charts.

Writing credit for “Nivram” is given to Bruce Welch, Hank Marvin and Jet Harris. It is a swing jazz tune.

The Rumble

“The Rumble” is the first track on the Shadows’ 1962 album “Out of the Shadows”. It was written by Ike Isaacs, a self-taught jazz guitarist who was born in Rangoon, Burma in 1919.  He moved to England in the mid-1940’s and became a staple of the music scene there.

My version of this tune is basically a cover of the Shadow’s original.
