… 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 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.
a first offering from Bam and his band. A quirky little number, one might say, with piano, accordion, trombone, violin, double bass, glockenspiel and percussion.
Bam Boozle and the horn swogglers play a simple repeating theme with variations for two pianos, violin and 3 cellos. Bam and Ed on the pianos, Ruth on violin and Boa, Patrick and Art on the cellos.
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 piece for two pianos, trumpet, violin, cello, double bass and small violin section. Played here by Bam Boozle and the horn swogglers in a big echoey hall. Bam is playing a basic theme again and again while Ruth, Boa, Art, Patrick and Ed muck about on other instruments (made a small change to the cello part, never liked the original – 23/12/10).
imagine if you will, a sextet with piano, double bass, drums, trumpet, vibes and synths playing this jazz tune plus the usual nonsense (an element of the circus maybe??) in a small club near you.
