Description : "Sausalito Sunrise" is a smooth jazz track featuring SlapJohnson on flute and Eric Bustamante on guitar; I play all other instruments. "Da BassMan" is sort of a drum and bass / reggae track, lots of groove hope you enjoy it.
Description : This track was recorded about six years ago as a musical present for my daughters birthday. I had spent countless hours on the finished version only to have my computer crash and I lost all the original tracks. Of course I was crushed, fearing all was lost. Fast forward a year or so later and I found this unfinished version of the track. Keep in mind that this was about two thirds of the way finished at the time and there are missing sections of the bass, keyboards, strings, etc. And for some reason there was a unknown soure of "static" on the bass track which had been corrected in the finished version. I had never thought about releasing this track for those reasons. But since it's such a fun track and it is my daughters birthday today (June 5th) I thought why not?
Now that you have the back story, this is
a multi-genre track. Disco,Jazz, Funk, Lantin percussion and hip hop. I would like to greatly thank all the musicians who gave of their time and talent. Art Miller (guitars), T.J. Watson (Soprano Sax), Slap Johnson (sax solo) and big D (that's me) bass, keyboards, piano, synth, clavinet and arrangement.
Happy Birthday Kayla! :)
