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.

Some Years Past

 

This is an original, smooth jazz tune new this summer. The title was the result of me thinking about my advancing age, so I put together a montage of photos of me with family and guitars that starts pretty far back and goes through the past year. They’re not in any particular order. I like this tune pretty well — it has a nice, relaxing feel.
