Here’s a new release of improvised jam songs from Tangled Wire Studio, Besides me, this collection features Noel Williams on Saxophone and Keyboards, Stony Bruce on Electric Guitar, Terry Jimmy Walters, Jr. on Drums and an appearance by John Yobinski on Bass.
What I like about these songs is their spontaneity. They developed on the fly with no planning or discussion. Like all my other releases, these tracks are licensed under Creative Commons and free to download. Enjoy!
I have been working on cataloging the archives of live jam recordings at Tangled Wire. I am happy to announce that I will have new releases – yes plural – coming very soon. Please stay tuned for more information!
Here in the United States, we are in the midst of our overly long Presidential election process. I am supporting Bernie Sanders, probably the only real candidate of the people I have had a chance to vote for in my lifetime.
Finally, here’s my song, “Politics 101.” I do believe it is very apt for the world we live in. However, if I were to do the song today, I would add an E7 Chord at the end of the song with the line, “Except for Bernie…”
Another year is about to fade away into the dustbin of our memories. New Year’s eve is always a good time to reflect on the past year and contemplate the hope and possibility of the coming year.
2015 was a mixed year for me. On the positive side of things, I released this record:
I am encouraged by some of the feedback I have received and the number of downloads and streams it has received on various sites across the interwebs.
On the other hand, I have all these other ideas that I had hoped to realize over the last twelve months that have not yet made it to fruition. That’ is where the possibility and clean slate of the New Year comes in. After the clock strikes midnight, let us all strive to move forward and realize our dreams and aspirations. I sincerely wish that everyone has a wonderful 2016.
I am sorry I have been AWOL from this site for the last couple of months. I do have some projects in the works that will soon be coming to light. I tend to hunker down and get working as we move from fall to winter. Please keep an eye on these pages in the coming weeks for some new content.
Why do these things always take more time than originally planned? I wish I knew. I do know that I am still hard at work getting this new release together. I am getting closer and closer. Please watch this page for further updates and exciting news about future projects.
In a few hours, the year 2014 will be over and a new year will be upon us. No matter what you experienced over the last 365 days, there’s always something hopeful about the clean slate of a new year. At least that has been the case for me. I am looking forward to 2015 because I have a new group of songs that will be part of a new album release, “Eyes Once Shut.” Please keep checking back for details.
As for you, the person reading these words, I sincerely wish you a joyous 2015.
