Just getting this under the wire for July's music challenge; it's not quite August 1st, at least not where I live. [more inside]
"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.
A nice little ditty from my old band's first (and only) E.P. I'm not sure what it's about, but it groove along nicely. My friend Stuart played vibes on the track.
This is a ssssmooth ssssong about sssssnakes in love, baby. Recorded in sssssstereo for your lissstening enjoyment.
"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.
