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.

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.

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.

some rock (and a little reggae) submitted for the following project “…. a new tv series called 3beers that will be broadcast nationally. We can’t tell you too much more about it, but we’re currently seeking some music for our title sequence/intro. We’re looking for something to brand the show, to bring it to life and to make it memorable. We’re looking for a 2 minute track, we don’t want any vocals. We believe we’d like it guitar driven, with a recognisable theme …. ” 60+ other tunes also submitted so unlikely to be the one, but still fun to try for.

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).

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).

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.
