Freedom Tape

A simple, melancholy electro instrumental that I recorded a couple of years ago. Percussion ideas came from various hip-hop sources; the melody is my own. I use it as background music during a spoken-word segment of my live shows. [more inside]

It's Summer (Go Outside and Play!)

"Daddy, can I have a sammich? Can I have candy/ice cream?" "Can we go see the Simpsons Movie?" No, no, no. Go outside and PLAY! (MI)

Bass

This is sort of the summer culmination of a song that me and some of my friends have built up. This version is solo (all of the extra 'tracks' are live loops) Oh, and critique the hell out of it!

Carl's Coffee

When I saw that the challenge was about "water", I thought about my friend Carl. Spoken word + very mellow bass.

BASSFIGHT: Commemorative Remix Edition

In which I show blatant disregard for the copyrights of snsranch and nonmyopicdave.

i lose YOU WIN!!!1!!!

This is my concession speech (jam) to nonmyopicdave. He rules, but that doesn't mean that I suck. (I still got skilz yo!) Seriously, this started as a joke, but having heard nonmyopicdave's thumping skills have made it worth my scant effort. BASSFIGHT!!!!!1!!!!!!!!

Here is another piece I'm working on.

Class

Unusual music, make with a ukulele, acoustic guitar, and bass, in one shot. Using a MagicStomp as a (very rudimentary) phrase sampler, and Audacity to record. Enjoy

Wandering Aloof

Another of my bass lines.

BASSFIGHT!!!!11!!!!!!

I'm in a goofy mood. But I'm up to being challenged by the likes of augustweed and others who thump the four big strings. Also, I need to shake my "punker" leg every once in a while.

Why Did It Feel Like a Bad Thing? v1.0

This bass line came to me during a very confusing period in my life . . . a moment that still leaves a perpetual after-taste. Women are so confusing.

Always Talking

Another bass line I'm working. Yes I love the echo.

Perfect Martyr

One of my bands, The Man So Cool, did some recording a couple weeks ago for a demo disc. We're still working on final vocals and proper mixes, but this is a pretty good rough mix of one of the songs. Links to the other three songs can be gotten over yonder.

The Opportunity of Imminent Danger

One of several bass lines I've been creating. All of the other parts (Drums, guitar, keyboard, etc.) are still in my head. Anyone looking for a bass player?

Love Me or Leave Me (bass/vocal)

Ok, so here's my spin on another old song. This Walter Donaldson/Gus Kahn composition was first featured in Florenz Zeigfield's 1928 Broadway musical Whoopee, starring Eddie Cantor & Ruth Etting, who took the song to #2 on the charts. In 1955, Doris Day starred in a biographical movie about Etting called "Love Me or Leave Me" & her updated rendition became a giant hit. Flash forward to 1967... Nina Simone turned this hokey old Ziegfeld tune into a completely reworked masterpiece of piano & voice (download link is at bottom). My own version (heard best live, I think) is definitely inspired by Nina's, but it could never compare to hers -- I just do my own thing & try to make it my own a bit. It's a fun song to do... audiences seem to love it. Incredible basswork once again provided by bass God Chris Conner.

Cry Me A River

Happy Sunday, hive mind! Well, I haven't been performing jazz much since moving to the Bay area. I'll confess, I've missed my musicians in LA (see song title) & just haven't found my niche/comfort zone up here yet. For a while, I was commuting down South to work on a CD but it got to be too difficult... so my musical life has been in limbo & this year I REALLY hope to change that. If you folks say you'd like to hear more mp3s, I do have some. And hey... if there's someone out there who would seriously like to collaborate with (or hire) this chick singer... I'm all ears and open to advice. I also take requests! :) I miss singing for people... (Incredible basswork courtesy of the fab-u-lous Chris Conner, my dear friend)

Clint Eastwood Jazz

Not really jazz, not really anything Clint would like. But it does blend the Spighetti Western sound with a mellow jazz bass. It's just for fun, I hope you like it.

The Secret Language of W

I was tinkering around with this thing in Logic late one night, and had nothing more in mind for it really, when a friend emailed me an audio file of all Bush's compiled mumblings and fumblings from the first debate in '04. (put together by a Randi Rhodes show staffer, I believe) Intrigued, I plopped it down on a track of its own, and the first few bars lined up so perfectly, I just knew it was meant to be. So it's a duet with GWB on Vox & me on my precioussss sea foam green '77 fretless P-bass. (G*D, I love that thing)

The Semi-Coherent Funk

A 1 minute, 43 second ditty. This was the first thing I did when I got Garage Band 2 years ago. All the drum loops are stock, and I'm riffing on bass & "lead" bass. I improvised over the groove until I got something I liked, then looped it.

untitled (three stars mix)

I just noticed the music section here and decided to toss this up for a little feedback. It's the first cut I did with a new trio, and we're still trying to decide what direction we should take: get crazy composing for the studio, or write simpler stuff that can actually be performed by three people. So far the studio stuff seems to hold up better.

Ocean

"Ocean" is an instrumental track from my recording project, James, Not Jim. It's a smooth, melodic, jazz/fusion piece that features electric bass guitar. Some more extensive recording/performance notes are here. Hope you like it. If you do, there are two more tracks over at myspace.com/wheatdesign.
