tidbits: groan men at work
(4:41) from the TIDBITS cd che gerard, probably from our 3rd gig at the Red Blood in Deep Ellum.
tidbits: hi low powers scronch
(5:40) a cool dill thanks to kennny sampled dialogue. the voices seem to be of divine origin. cute, anyway.
tidbits: laundry amusements
(4:13) from the very first TIDBITS gig at the Red Blood in Deep Ellum just before 9/11. how innocent. how clueless we were. and yet, there's something that positively told us we were going somewhere. like maybe IHop right after the gig.
except for the BL Lacerta tune, the following are from the Cheeseworks Studios, my protools based home studio. unlike most places you go, everything here is a full length song. of course, that means longer downloads so click on a few and peel yourself a grape or two.
(4:14) title track from the Fluteslinger CD recorded as 2003 became 2004. made possible by the sweet flute and guitar patches in my yamaha S-30 and motif rack module. oh, and the yamaha AN2000 desktop synth/drum machine.
(2:38) a mid 60s bluenotesque tune from a session in Roosterpoot during xmas week, 2003, featuring a muted trumpet and flute duo over guitar, bass and drums. here's to portable studio gear like the I-mac and M-box that sat in the front seat during the trip, surrounded by snacks, cds and dirty clothes packed just for mom.
(4:19) one of the tunes from the "Fluteslinger" CD. a safari into world music, sorta trip hop. the weather report influence is undeniable. not that I would ever deny the inspiration of joe zawinul any more than I would dare compare my playing to His Excellence.
(1:45) jazz from the cheeseworks studio, recorded in the summer of 2003, when a student turned me on to Reason, the virtual rack and sequencer. dont let shufflebob talk you into nothin, now. actually, this thing is a thirdstream ramble through the grey area of my brain between classical, big band swing and avant funk. like I said...third stream.
deep space receiver
ambient receiver noise
BL Lacerta: xmas mix
(3:26) a BL Lacerta piece, edited by bruce, from a Bathhouse performance entitled 23rd Century Schizoid Christmas. this thing was top 10 mp3 back in the day. I just dont remember the year.
