Hey,

This is a ballad that I've composed,

and it goes like this -

00:00 - 00:56 - improv intro / opening

00:56 - 02:58 - The main theme (the part that I actually composed ...) - two times

02:58 - 05:30 - improvisation based on the main theme - (as you do in jazz ...)

05:30 - 07:38 - The main theme again - two times as well ..

07:38 - 08:25 - improv ending ..

I hope you'll enjoy !!

Any opinion and critic are more than welcome !!!

Hello Everyone!

I just joined to board and thought I would introduce myself here. I have been a piano player for a long time, but started playing organ 5 years ago. I found the site through the organissimo band videos on you tube. I dig that group! There are a lot of great things posted in here too! The site looks great and I am enjoying browsing through the threads. Thank you for all you have shared!

Steve

Here is a link to some of my work on youtube:

PostCage%2B2.jpg

New review of the PostCage comp, thanks to Rob Haskins and American Record Guide.

The all important excerpt about my part in this collection:

"John Cage would have been 100 in September. (You think that's impossible? Think Elliot Carter.) This project, which has been in process for several years, is a marvelous contribution to the occasion. "PostCage" can mean many things, of course, and one soon encounters great difficulties describing a particular composer's debt to him. Still, some of the offerings here show their lineage quite clearly: David Beardsley's November Test Patterns, the Ecstasy of Electric Trees Weeping in the Twilight including Recumbent Bright Insects and Relevant Footnotes (2009), for just intonation sine tones, clearly relates to Cage's interests in electronic music ad in attending to the rich sonic and simple. (The sonority persists, unchanged, for the work's ten-minute duration. As Beardsley remarks in the notes, "It's not going anywhere because it's already there.")"

I can't find the review on line, but here's a link to CDBaby.

And here's a review by Brian Olewnick from a few months ago.

These are two compositions of mine, one in a trio context.

AMPM * (quartet)

This was basically a musical commentary on the ugliness and immorality of war. Check out Jim's inspired vocalizations emanating from his tenor sax. Truly inspired.

Theme # Two (trio)

Greg Waits - trombone

Carl Hillman - bass

Dennis Durick - drums

Jim Sangrey - tenor *

Tango Inebriato (quintet)

rec. at the Dallas Museum of Art in '09.

w/ Chris McGuire - tenor; Larry Spencer - trpt; Carl Hillman - bass; Dennis Durrick - drums

Freedom's Fall (quintet) This was recorded with musicians I worked with on the SS Constitution back in 1986. We'd jam after hours every night on the ship. working on originals. We pooled our bread and went into a studio in Honolulu one Saturday. This is way loose, but have always liked the energy.we were getting.

Joined by Steve Wiliams - alto; Tim redfield - piano; Michael Seaman - el bass; Petre Davenport - drums

Hi @all,

I play Jazz on electric mandolin / electric mandola / electric fiddle as my hobby and I love to create videos of my favorite standards. I use a Boss GT-10 and so I'm able to play the Bass lines myself as well. My newest one is a solo on "A Time for Love" by Johnny Mandel, using drop-2 block chords on several passages.

See the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SD8CHELfZdo

if you like some more this is my channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/TomSailor7700/videos

All the best & stay playing,

Tom

A Time for Love is real nice! I've never heard jazz mandolin like that before.

a review.

"The one recent work is that by David Beardsley. Sonic Bloom (1998) is a halo of soft attacks and microtonal chords. It is inspired by La Monte Young, but its form relies less on drones, more on a continually changing palette of harmonies swaying like slow, decaying windchimes."

not much of a review, more like a description. sorry, no wind chimes there. ph34r.gif

An improvisation from the same period:

"Venus and a Moon setting in the West, a view through the trees
Synthesizer improvisation, 1999. Korg 05R/W tuned in the system of intervals from the harmonic series known as just intonation.
I don't know how long this track will be on line, so check it out now."

Hi everyone!

The name Mike Vernon
might be familiar for some of you. His curriculum is unbelievable:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Vernon_%28record_producer%29

I've just had the honour of having him as producer of my new band's first EP. If you want to take a look or download our songs for free, click here:

And here's a video of one of the songs Mr Vernon and myself wrote together:


All opinions are welcome. Thanks for watching, folks. All the best!

Had a really fun gig last night at The City Tap in Pittsboro, NC with Brad Maiani on guitar and Michael Ode on drums. Michael is a student at Oberlin. I'm playing my Hamichord through Leslie 3300. We recorded it using two cell phones with Apogee Mics, then combining the tracks on Audacity.

Enjoy!
