… a euphoric chilled out house tune with lush strings, envelope shifting, trance gating and meaningless key changes. Best description I can come up with.
a fairly extensive rewrite of a piece I wrote at the end of 2009 (edited early 2011) – here is a short orchestral interlude with lush strings, solo violins, piano and French horn possibly inspired by all the snow around (but maybe not) when I worked on it and dedicated to my parents.
heavy and moody tune with lighter more melodic moments. The raw distorted guitars, weighty drums and bass make this the closest to some kind of rock that I’ve done (closer followers of the genre would have to sub-classify it for me).
a funking jam featuring Terrie from Tonehammer on vocals joining Bam Boozle & the horn swogglers plus friends with hammond, bass, guitar, clavinet, drums, moog and a sax section.
Bam Boozle and the horn swogglers play a slow laid-back minor blues in the jazz style for those summer evenings. Bam on piano, Ruth Tempet on trumpet, Boa Dubless on double bass, Art Guthie on guitar and Ed Thrums on drums (Bam & Ruth made a few changes 3/7/2011).
… played here by Bam and Ruth. A slow piece, sometimes plaintive, sometimes less so, inspired in part by distant memories of hearing Charlie Chaplin’s soundtracks.
a blues shuffle in D minor with Art Guthie on guitar, Boa Dubless on bass, Ed Thrums on drums and Bam Boozle on the rhodes. Messy jamming in the studio while the other horn swogglers went out for doughnuts.
hmmm this sounds suspiciously like jazz-fusion to me with some latin flavours thrown in. Bam, Art, Ed, Boa and Ruth messing about in the hall. Art was trying out his new slide too.
a piece with a darkish heavy mood resolved by soaring lighter sections. Inspired by my memories of le Salève, a mountain with wondrous views of Geneva and surroundings.
