Italian American Collaborations
Description : We haven't done any collabs for about a month, so here's our latest. I guess you'd call it a Latin pop/rock tune featuring a couple of newly discovered friends. On vocals - Bo K from London U.K. and on sax - Dan R. from the U.S. We'd love to hear your thought, so drop us a comment if you have time.
Description : A wonderful Franco composition in the Fusion style with elements of earlier jazz styles. Dan helped out on tenor sax and Trancefer on Wurlitzer. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Description : This is a unique whimsical track with vocals and lyrics by Looper member, Hektor Thillet. I understand he was drinking wine when he wrote this! We also have our New York buddy, James (midiman007) helping out Franco on guitar. Maybe I'm a 'nut-head' but I'm going to break out my telescope and see if I can find Baboom! Hope you like and hit us up with your comment.
Description : This is a self indulgence track, with some cool solos from us both. It's a jazz/fusion track in the vain of Weather Report. Franco sent this to me last year, and I started working on it and to be honest, I found it too difficult to play, but I listened to it over and over and went to work on it again. It was a bit tricky, but I think I finally got it. What do you think?
Description : Franco and I both loved this track by Little River Band, so we set out to do a cover and here is the result. It's a bit jazzier than the original, but pretty close. If anyone would like to tackle the vocals, let us know in the comments and we can remove the instruments where the vocals would go.
Description : The closest style for this track would be Latin-Funk. It feature vocals and a cool Italian rap by Franco, keys by Carlos Dek and vocalizing by Francy. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
Description : This is a smooth jazz track with a bit of a Latin flavor to it. Franco broke in his new nylon string Ibanez guitar on this one. Credits go to Franco's brother, Roberto Q. on sax and Ricky H. on piano. Check us out and let us know what you think...Hope you like!
Description : A groovin' R&B track with some jazz elements thrown in for good measure. Special guests include the always wonderful Patricia Edwards, vocals and Ricardo on electric piano. Would love to hear what you think.
Description : A dark acid pop ballad (if there is such a thing) with some creative instrumentation. Additional credits go to: Artjanis - rhythm, guitar, West Tracks Music - Bass, Babygee - lead vocals, Taratoxic - background vocals, Styrmonix - horns.
Hope you like and will let us know what you think. Franco and Scott
Description : Another boss hit-bound single from us with some help from our friend Robert from Canada on vocals. An uplifting, feel good Latin/fusion style tune with some nice instrumentation. We'd love to hear what you think.
Franco & Scott
Description : Many wont remember this tune, but it is a Chris Rea cover of one of my all time favorite songs from 1978. I thought it needed a bit more guitar, so asked Franco to do his magic. Any singer wanting to do the vocals, let me know and I can remove any needed leads. Hope you like.
Description : This little number just may make you get up offa that thang and dance till you feel better! It's a jazzy samba number with lots-o-stuff going on. Featuring Robert and Spelljammer on vocals and Reiko on sax. Give it a listen...It will do you no harm.
Description : A funky little cover of the aptly named Tower of Power tune. Features some heavy brass, ass kicking drums, and of course, Franco's groovy guitar. Check it out...It will do you no harm!
Description : Another different from our usual. Guess we're stretching our wings a bit on this one.
Reiko - tenor sax,
Janis 71 - vocal 1,
Katie Bregman - vocal 2,
Dwayzo - bg. vocals,
Ancoral - pad.
Let us know what you think. We love your comments?
Description : This is an Afro-Latin tune featuring the vocals of our friend, Carlos from Argentina. This track is reminiscent of the early, more Latin styles of Santana. Give it a spin and let us know what you think...It will do you no harm!
Description : My friend and collaborator, Franco, discovered this beautiful pella from Patricia, and I fell in love with it right away, so we set out to create this beauty. Does she have a great voice, or what?!? Thanks to Reiko (Germany) for great sax loops.
Description : This is something a little different from us. Originally, it was a track I (Scott) was going to do myself, but I thought some additional bass and guitar would be nice, so I recruited Franco which really added more spice to it. The result, another of our collaborations! Anyway, this would probably fall under the category of an indie rock power ballad. A little something different from us...Hope you like and take a moment to comment.
Description : This one's a real international project featuring the exceptional talent from Janis71 (France) - vocals, Mr.Funktastic (U.S) - brass, Neddings (Netherlands) - piano, and of course us, Franco (Italy) - guitar, bass, midi strings, & midi flute (midi's played with guitar using Sonuus G2m), and Scott (U.S) - drums, percussion. If I had to describe a style, this would be a Latin/jazz/folk tune. Many hours were involved in this track, so hope you enjoy. We'd love to hear your thoughts.
Description : A bluesy jazz number we did a few months ago featuring the beautiful voice of Bonnie Rabson. Hope you like and let us know what you think.
Description : A great little Latin/jazz tune featuring vocals from Robert from Canada. Some nice guitar, brass, woodwinds, and even a drum break, or two. No downer in this one...It's FEEL GOOD all the way!
Description : A funky jazz track with some great instrumentation going on. Props to Bonnie for a beautiful pella.
Description : Title translation: Island Of My Dreams.
If you're into authentic Latin/jazz style music, check this one out. Featuring some great vocals from Irlenn (Brazil). We'd like to know what you think.
Description : This is an old school jazz/funk track we did the first of the year and it features an intro pella from Patricia Edwards and a funky bass line from Glenn P. Also some great sax from one of our members who's name escapes me (if it's you, let us know so we can include you in the credits.)
Hope you like
Description : Jazzy, Bluesy, wonderful track from international friends. Check it out. It will do you no harm. Let us know what you think.
Description : This is a sexy little Italian / American compilation featuring some nice sax from Reiner. It's an acid jazz track with some pop R&B thrown in for good measure. Give it a spin and let us know what you think.
