Freddie the Freeloader

Me and my Swedish guitar player friend Gus are working on a jazz guitar/bass duo project. In this rehearsal recording we play one of the easiest jazz songs ever written and still somehow manage to fuck it up (NFSW, some swear words at the beginning). Also, the furnace is running for pretty much the whole take. Sorry about that.

Florida Lee

Carbon 7 is an improvisational/experimental trio that creates spontaneous music at the moment it's recorded. I left a tad of dialog at the beginning, so you could here our "process." Dennis gives Ron a hard time about choosing a key, then I call out C# & start it off. Clocks in at a whopping 26.5 minutes, but it evolves slowly the entire way. [more inside]

Cloud Ships

A mid-tempo piece, built around the opening drum riff. Carbon 7 is an improvisational jazz/space/rock trio that just makes it up on the spot. [more inside]

Mel Torme in hell. What started out as a tribute to Norwegian improv giants Supersilent became an outtake from Zappa's Lumpy Gravy. Kinda...

Too Blue

"This was an improvisation, actually the second take (Blue 2, or "Too Blue"), during which I had the memory of the Monterey Jazz festival firmly planted in my head, remembering the incredible musicians and music I heard all over the fairgrounds, playing jazz, soul, and lots 'n lots of blues…" ~ Laurie Z.

Hillbilly Disco

This is just an improv jam from a rehearsal with my old band. It's a little bit funky, a little jazzy. Overall it's just a really fun groove IMO. The recording quality is not the greatest but it's not too bad. It features me on drums, my buddy Dan on guitar and another guy named Jonathan on keys. Enjoy.
