Festive Seasonal Sounds
Well, finally a new addition! "Gatsby Blues" I decided to stop kicking and screaming and attempt to embrace music technology. Classified most closely to "Trip Hop", "Dance", "House" but not really "Electronica", this tune adds two step Gatsby style saxophones with a bluesy feel. Listening to Trip Hop a bit more today...seems as most anything goes. Most of the tunes though, don't have much for musical themes or melodys going on. Likely on purpose but then much of the music is assembled by producers rather than by musicians. Should be the final mix....but who knows for sure. Thanks for checking it out.
Porgy & Bess..... "Summertime". Recorded as a mouthpiece test, shortly before I added "SR Technogies" mouthpieces to my collection. I wanted a recent reference on the tone of the Beechler Mouthpiece.
"You Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by "The Righteous Brothers" Enjoy the original version, visit iTunes.
"Stormy Monday", another great classic... I just had to do a sax version. I must say though....I used a "Boss JS5 Backing Machine" for many of these track your listening to. Mostly the older tracks. Nowadays....I have too much fun doing drum and bass tracks. With a little programing time you can come up with really cool stuff!
"Free Sax" by Frank Villafranca, an avant guard piece, recorded live to track features two, solemn, to frolicking, interweaving tenor saxophones. Experimental of course. Available for free download. It is a nice meditation piece, though it's energy fluctuates. It is a very saxxy adventure for sure.
"Frank's Sonata" an original by Frank Villafranca. This version, recorded at home about 5 years ago. It was later arranged for "San Gabriel 7" and included on their "Blame It On Trio" CD
"Stardust" A timeless Classic. Recorded at home about 10 years ago for quick demo for my "One Man Band" I worked several small parties over the years with the help of technology. Working solo with backing tracks offers an alternative to booking a solo piano player and provides the sound of a five piece band.
Can You Feel The Love Tonight. Remember this one? Written and performed by Elton John, for Disneys "Lion King" This track was recorded in my home studio, maybe 6 years ago, I think it is a great song! This is also another great example of the "Boss JS5 Backing Machine"
