funk-a-ling-a-ling

a little bit of fun for these times. Bam’s funk orchestra with a liberal smattering of cheese and ducks. I suggest headphones to sample the usual noise-a-lings.

sulla strada per Barga

sulla strada per Barga

… another road trip for the Bam, Boa, Ed and Art. This one long and torturous and they haven’t even got there yet. Anyroad, they will eventually. This tune was written for a good friend who lives in Barga, Italy who plays in a soul band. Therein lies a problem, because this track is a jazz-funk hybrid with some scarily muzak-like nonsense thrown in. Featuring Hammond, bass, drums and guitar.

the Nile

the Nile

some jazz-funk. The title has nothing to do with a river. There is a tenuous link to Nile Rodgers who is one of my favourite musicians and producers. Featuring alto and tenor saxophones played over a strong rhythm section of bass, drums, guitar and keys.

more jazz-funk with a hybrid ending – an up-tempo number heavily influenced by JTQ to the point where I think I may have subconsciously nicked some riffs – I hope not.

a jazz funk jam driven by Boa Dubless on bass with Ruth on trumpet, Bam on keys, Art on guitar, Ed on drums and Patrick randomly hitting things. Long time a coming.

second track from Art Guthie’s “beyond the closed door” series, another messy jam from the echoey Boozle Hall with Bam on Hammond, Art on guitar, Boa on double bass and Ed on drums. Best listened to loud to feel you’re in the hall.

10 past funk o’clock

a mish-mash of funk and disco with some jazz and other nonsense thrown in for good measure. Featuring solid bass and drums with Hammond, guitars, horns and the odd strings.

a cheesy jazz-funk tune à la JTQ to get things started. The first offering from audioscapist.

… another jazz-funk tune with a rocky ending for good measure, with guitars, hammonds, horn lines, moog melodies and some funky bass and drums.
