Description : Return To Forever was a group that started my love of fusion jazz and this is my attempt to cover their 1976 track, “The Romantic Warrior. I know I wore out several inceptions of this album from LP, cassette and 8 track. The original track was over 10 minutes long, so I abridged it some. Hope you like and download.

Great work, bravo, hand clapping, whistling. That's such a nice listen. Belongs at the Blue note in NYC.

Hey Steve,

Really glad to hear from you and checking out your kind words. It's much appreciated.

Wow...I dont listen to jazz a lot but this really kept me interested all track long. So many rythms and melodies mixed together without feeling forced. Really good job. Thanks for sharing!

I am not familiar with Return To Forever, but regardless I am enjoying this rendition very much! Quite cool in it's minimalism and composition. I don't listen to enough of the real fusion - jazz fusion. Very cool sounding mix, gentle and potent. Very expressive instrumental work here. Was this all performed on keyboards, or were other instruments used? Or maybe just precision sequencing? Either way, extremely good song! Fave!

Thanks so much Spivkurl. This is a great group with some legendary musicians. This is the album if you want to check it out:

The drums were done on my Alesis electronic drum kit. The drum sounds are good and a hell of allot easier than miking my acoustic kit. I can also get the different sounds needed like Latin and orchestral percussion.

Great work! Return to of my all time fav's

Couldn't agree more, my friend! Their stuff is mentally taxing, but I'm sure I will be doing more.

Cool track very, very nicely done lots of feel here with flavour...
I think you've out done yourself with this one My Man...
This is truly worthy of being a CD cut, royalties would be in demand
but you could make some cash with tunes done to detail like this...

Solid piece of work...

Wow, thanks so much, TG. You've really made my evening.

Yes, it was a bit of a challenge, but I have played it many times over the years, so I just had to remember it.

This whole album is fantastic. Check it out if you like. My track doesn't do it justice.

Thanks so much, Jamid. So glad you like it and took time to let me know.

Tumbleweed 3rd Jul 2015 23:13 - 9 years ago
that is some great keyboard work the stand-up bass..I`m not familiar with the original but I certainly can hear the amount of detailed and talented work that went into this mix...I could get into this style very easily (even though I haven`t been exposed to much of it in the past...its the kind of music that seems to draw your attention to each instrument as it does it part...great job on this Scott...much respect....Ed
ScottB55 replied 4th Jul 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks so much, Ed. I appreciate all your kind words and glad you like it. Since you like it, maybe you would like to check out more. Here's the whole album: It is fantastic and my track is nowheres near as good.

silverman 3rd Jul 2015 23:03 - 9 years ago
I know nothing of this music style but my ears tell me this sounds very good.
Well put together.
Did you play on it yourself?
ScottB55 replied 4th Jul 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks, glad you like it. Here's the full album if you want to check it out. It's some pretty intricate stuff played by some masters.

No, I had some help with some of the tracks. Wish I had the ability to play all tracks, but not in this lifetime.

Description : Updated 1/7/2023. This is a progressive fusion flavored jazz number. I called on fellow Looperman DISCIPLINE to season this composition with that FIRE GUITAR, and he did! Let me know your thoughts on this one. Enjoy.

Description : Now on youtube:, soon out on my upcoming album "Step by Step"!
Inspired by a track of Pseudoble. I was noodling along to his track "I wish I didn't know" (which is awesome) and had the words "Snow in Athens" in my head. This with the smooth jazz/fusion atmosphere led me to this track with a sort of Steely Dan feel.

Description : Psychedelic blues hip hop with lead banjo and acoustic resonator slide guitar. Acoustic drum kits, fat basslines, soaring filtered strings, some strong Eastern elements (from guitar and strings), some dub and funk from the bass and drums and a bit of rocking electric guitar. Very unusual piece of music and a trip like no other I've heard. Some of it is like a dark, deep Southern delta blues track over a hip hop and dub backing. All played and programmed by me, no loops used.

Description : the rise of AI
this i would describe as hip-hop space rock, last night of the proms sort :))
its different, a fusion of genres, this is all played by me, no loops. got a little more music theory now, so put it to the test.
its my first attempt at writing something myself and hopefully show i can produce a bit too. i wanted all the instruments to have their place but to shine alone, let me know if you think i achieved my description.

Description : Found some 70's funk drum loops that I liked and added some funk horn loops. Then I found some effects and percussion loops that worked well with the bass loops I found. Yeah, all loops but 1 vocal track of mine. :) Funk/fusion? Might be cool to have some hip hop styled vox on this, any takers?

Description : It is pretty hard to set a genre to this music sorry. So if someone have a better idea about what genre it is feel free to tell me.For that one I focused on the melodies instead the complexity (a lot of instrument with fx). So basically this tune is a piano one featuring piano, organ and 2 synths only no drum or fx.All those instrument follow the same melodie(composed by myself took me hours for that XD) The name is due my mom loved that one as the one I did for her long time ago.This is more a experimentation for me so plz have that in mind when you will write a comment.Also there are a surprise at 1:42 min.Hope you will enjoy this one.I also profit to say all my works will be avaliable to download without having to post a comment for the may 30 only.the reason is a mystery.

Description : I don't know what genre this would be. First track I've ever put up here. This is probably more gaming music than anything else.
