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.

sizzle

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.

G minor blues

G minor blues

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).

the crossing

the crossing

yet another attempt at a piece for orchestra, this time for a fairly large ensemble with full strings, trumpets, French horns, solo flute and oboe and some percussion. A bit melodramatic in parts with lighter quirkier sections. Will no doubt have to be edited further at a later date. (NB. two years to the day when I posted my first track.)

same as it ever is

same as it ever is

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).

a laid back hybrid number with jazz and classical themes played on trumpet and vibes over a strong rhythm, underplayed by French horns, pads and other strange noises (added a new trumpet part 20/05/09).
