restless

restless     

essentially a deep house disco hybrid with a hynotic (some may say repetitive) beat and featuring a random assortment of the noises I seem to favour. Once in a while it’s ok to listen to loud music. This track will work best best loud and through headphones.

Bam, Boa, Ed, Ruth and la Faune muck about with a jazz tune and I’m using the last two terms pretty loosely.

a mumblin’ an’ a bumblin’

a mumblin' an' a bumblin'     

A fairly hypnotic (i.e. repetitive) and laid back groove in a jazz style with rhodes, double bass, drums, flute and synths.

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.

a brief time of history

a brief time of history     

an orchestral piece featuring solo cello with the usual mish-mash of noises. A mix of darker, practically funereal moments with loud bits thrown in to wake you up. I’ve undoubtedly “quoted” (nicked) ideas from the composers I listen to but with any luck I’ve disguised them well.

didn’t anybody tell you?

didn't anybody tell you     

a rather retro mix of funk, disco, Turkish makams and the usual nonsense featuring some stirling bass work by Boa Dubless and strong beats by Ed Thrums in this dare I say it, prog funk disco track.

you know when

a funk soul jam featuring soul sisters Terrie Odabi, Ruth & Stephe on wails, and soul brothers Bam on rhodes, Art on guitar, Ed on drums & Boa on bass.

sulla strada per Barga

sulla strada per Barga     

… another road trip for the Bam, Boa, Ed and Art. This one long andĀ torturousĀ 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 road to Finn’s Acre

the road to Finn's Acre     

a slow funked up jazz tune by the Bam Boozle Quintet, a right BBQ of a jam with Bam on the piano, Boa Dubless on bass, Ed Thrums keeping the beat, Ruth Tempet on trumpet and Stephe Hooxan on the sax.
