Two new songs in store: Garage Band and Still Doin’ It.
This is what I always wanted a garage band to sound like; equal parts rock guitar, funky bass, jazzy lines and Hammond organ. Actually when I listen back to this I can hear the incredible influence that Joe Satriani had on me in my high school days. I listened to his Extremist album on my walkman more times that I can count. I am surprised I didn’t break the tape. I could have cut it down and made it shorter but in the end I decided to let it go on for almost 7 minutes. Just couldn’t get enough of the groove.
Still Doin’ It:
This title really sums up where I am at. I have been a musician for practically my whole life. And I am still here playing, still here having a blast riffing on a groove, grooving on a riff. When I wrote this riff it was so much fun to play that I decided the whole band needed to play it. From there we enter a section that adds a bit of tension. What day goes by that doesn’t have an element of that? From there we release into a more standard grooving part before coming back to that fun riff. Featured on tenor sax is my long time friend and collaborator Dan Puccio. Dan has spoiled me because for a long time I believed that all tenor sax players could play with that much range and killer sound. Dan is a lot like me, he is still soldering on through this game of music, he is still doin’ it.
You can buy them at the store as singles or to buy the whole Album: About Time here:
