Tunes, Tracks, Beats & Mixes
Description : This is one of those songs that just puts a smile on your face! It's a country/pop track and features some smooth vocals by Astrid. I included some short Mellotron passages and I mixed this piece in 5.1 surround. Yes, it's a bit long, but when I tried to shorten it, I was removing something I liked, so I just kept it this way. Hope you like and download.
Description : This is an old jazz standard originally done by Dizzy Gillespie in 1941 and covered by numerous jazz greats. Hope you like my version and would love for you to download it.
Description : This may be a first for Looperman and one or two of you may even like it (but I doubt too many more will.) This is a New Orleans or Dixieland style jazz track and I don't believe I've ever heard this style here. Dixieland is one of the oldest styles of jazz in America (although they didn't call it this back then) and it's still quite popular in New Orleans. I had the pleasure of playing this style at Seville Quarter, Pensacola, FL., back in my younger years. I did this track for my 93 year old Uncle John, who loves Dixieland. Hope you like it.
Description : This is kind of a New Age fantasy type tracks and features several instruments including one of my favorite instruments, the Mellotron. Hope you like.
Description : I'm going way back with this jazz jewel. The original version was released by Little Willie John in 1956, but the best known version, by Peggy Lee, was done in 1958 and covered by numerous artists. You older cats will definitely remember it. The singer didn't pan out, so if anyone would like to add vocals to replace brass, let me know. Hope you like.
Description : This is kind of an Indie Pop track with some nice jazz elements. Some really nice synth and Hammond organ tracks provided by a good friend, Damian V. Hope you like and would love for you to download.
Description : This is a fun little Latin flavored number with some nice elements and instrumentation happening. I recruited my friend, Damian V., on a fantastic piano and organ track. Hope you like, and if so, please feel free to download.
Description : This is a blend of traditional and acid jazz including some trumpet rides reminiscent to later Miles Davis styles. I'd like to welcome a good friend and GREAT pianist, Damian Volstock, who I did studio work with in Alabama, many moons ago. If you're a jazz fan, give this one a spin.
Description : A groovy little disco/funk track with lots of stuff happenin'! Give it a spin and get up offa that thang and dance till you're satisfied.
Description : This is a kind of Latin/House track and Bob Reynolds helped out with some great sax. Hope you like
Description : I guess you'd classify this number as a power ballad. Midiman James was kind enough to help out with his great guitar track...Many thanks James! Hope you like.
Description : This is my version of The Average White Band's 1974 track. I changed it up slightly with a few more solos, but kept it pretty close to the original. Hope you like and download it.
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.
Description : This is a real oldie but moldy! The original was done in 1890 and I doubt will be appreciated by the youngsters here. I've always loved this piece, so thought I'd put my own spin on it. It was quite a challenge, since it was in a time signature, 9/8, that I had never attempted before. Of course drums and percussion were never intended for this piece, but I'm a drummer, so what the hell. Hope you like and download if you do.
Description : This is a progressive style track with some interesting elements happening including some orchestral passages. Hope you like and feel free to download if you do.
Description : If this isn't funk, than grits ain't groceries! If you're old enough, you may remember the Temptations. This track is my inspiration of this wonderful group's music with such songs a 'Psychedelic Shack' and 'Cloud Nine.' Unfortunately, this music is lost on today's artists, which is a shame, cause it was sooooo good! This track is not a recreation of the Temptations, but my inspiration of their style with my style thrown in. Hope you like it.
Description : This is a funky little track with some various things and sounds going on. Hope you like and feel free to download if you do.
Description : When I first started playing drums, I saved my nickels and dimes and bought every Sandy Nelson album that came out. This track has some passages that reminds me of his playing and style, so I just took it from there. Midiman James help out with some guitar tracks...Thanks James! Hope you like, and feel free to download if you do.
Description : A blend of funk, jazz and a little rock thrown in for good measure. Lots of drums and guitar. Named after my dog, Fannie Mae. Hope you like and feel free to download.
Description : This is a song I did a couple years ago, so I thought I'd redo it and use the knowledge I have acquired from than to now. I'm also trying out some of my latest Kontakt VSTs. I have asked my friend Franco (ferryterry) if he could include some of his fine guitar tracks, and he generously agreed. I hope you enjoy and would love for you to download if you do.
Description : This is another track where I had trouble choosing a genre. It has some chill and rock elements. It starts and ends with a nice harp and cello duo, then gets heavier, with a more rock passage. Hope you enjoy and feel free to download.
Description : This track is far removed from my usual. My knowledge of metal is limited to Black Sabbath's 70's album, "Paranoid" so some of you true metal heads may give a little snicker when you hear it. As a drummer, this track lended itself to some nice drumming, so I thought I'd expand my horizons and give it a try. I even threw in a little Goth! Midiman James helped out on our back-to-back solos...Thanks James. Give it a listen and downloads always welcome.
Description : This one's a bit hard to describe in that it seems to have a few genres, i.e. rock, funk, R&B, and pop, so I'll just put it under the rock category. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, feel free to download.
Description : This is a funky little retro sounding track featuring a talk-box and some cool slap bass, brass and other groovy sounding instruments. I hope you enjoy and feel free to download if you do.
Description : A groovy little jazz/funk number with a tad of retro feel and lots of instrumentation. I am waiting on Midi-man James' guitar ride, so will update the new version when he sends it. Hope you like and feel free to download if you wish.
