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 my second attempt to a "spy" movie kind of soundtrack. It has all the retro sounds you might expect from those early 60s and 70s films. I'm sure you older 'cats' will recognize the style, and maybe you younger guys and gals may get a chuckle out of it, so give it a listen.
Description : This one's a bit different for me, breaking away from the jazz and funk for awhile. This is sort of a dark pop/rock track, incorporating a favorite instrument of mine, the mellotron (VST.) This track kinda took on a life of it's own. I wasn't really sure what kind of track it would become, but here's the result. Hope you like it and enjoy the download.
Description : This is a tune dedicated to my friend, Nancy, who followed me to the clubs I played at for years, and is still following me with my studio work. Why do I dedicate this to her? Onnacounta cause she's soooooo naughty! She never liked violins, but loved her sax! Here's to you, Nancy. Anyway, this is a little blues track with some nice guitar and sex...oh, sorry, I mean sax.
Enjoy and download away.
Description : A little disco, a little funk, and just feel good 70s style music. Featuring some drum, bass, and guitar solos, with some groovy horns and disco vocals. Check it out...It will do you no harm!
Description : This is a fun retro jazz/funk track kind of in the style of Quincy Jones' earlier stuff when he was doing themes for shows like Bill Cosby. There's some groovy organ, guitar, bass and horn stuff going on. Hope you like and feel free to download.
Description : I usually do retro styles, but I found a great vocal track from an excellent artist, so thought I'd try something different and compose an instrumental track around it. It is an alternative or indie style track, so hopefully I did the backing for the vocals justice. My friend and collaborator, James (midiman007), did the wonderful guitar tracks...Thanks James. I hope you enjoy and leave a comment. Scott
Description : This is a kind of funk-disco-big band number that will make you think of the 70s and 80s, if you're old enough. It has all those vintage sounds so popular in this genre. I tried to maintain the sounds of the time while still enabling some updating. Even if you had never liked disco, give this one a try. It may surprise you.
Description : This is a country/folk track in a genre I don't do much, so I thought I'd give it a go. It also has some instruments I don't use much, namely the banjo, mandolin and fiddle. I got the title from a movie I saw a few months ago. Hope you enjoy, Scott.
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.
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 : 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 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 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 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 : 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 : 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 : 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 : 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 progressive style track with some interesting elements happening including some orchestral passages. Hope you like and feel free to download if you do.
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 : 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 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 : 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 a kind of Latin/House track and Bob Reynolds helped out with some great sax. Hope you like
