Ass-kicking new song: "Blues Rites Night"

1966 Selmer Bundy tenor saxophone with Otto Link Super Tone Master mouth piece, Hoehner Blues Band harmonica, hand percussion, Audacity effects. This music is Blues gone trancendental, it'll take you out in the woods and blues you under the stars.

This song is way different, and to be honest, better than anything I've done before. It has a unique fusion of Native American beat, dead-on blues sax, and "night in the woods" background done mostly with the Hoehner Blues Band C-harp. I'm kind of amazed I managed to produce this.

Thank You, as always, for listening. Prepare to go into night spaces blue...

Hard Sax Rox

This is the clip I call "Hard Sax Rox." I'm playing Bello right on the edge here, busting harmonics in a righteous hard rock opera style that comes straight from growing up in the 60's & 70's. (I'm Gen-X, class of 1980, and all the hard rockers came out in my childhood and teen years.)

Bust it out:

Thank you for listening!

Back to practice - 01-20-2009 Practice Session

This session was pretty good - and a good bit overdue. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. The last 5 minutes or so went pretty "hard rock opera" and I'm going to clip it and title it in a post after this one. I really felt in the groove on that part. The full session is just over 12 minutes and in a variety of styles. Hang on to your ears, and if you want just the short version, check the next post.

Thank you for listening!

Youtube - Jazzcid Rockit Sax

1st Youtube video - Hawai'ian-inspired sax

This is after listening to Hawai'ian artist Keali'i Reichel for awhile. His work is a lot softer, smoother, and more professional than anything I've ever done, but it put me in the right mood. I still need to figure out a good way to prop up my Blackberry for this kind of thing, though.

Thank you for listening!
