Ju Ju

I was listening to this tune from a while back and thinking of my partner in music, Titos Sompa. We met when I had my first studio on Miramar Beach and we've been tight ever since. 

This one is a nice piece called "Ju Ju". The saxes are Chico Freeman, Arthur Blythe, Hamiet Bluiett and trumpet by Olu Dara. Backing vocals are the wonderful Jeanie Tracy.

Just a bit of joy for a Thursday.

Click Mbongi if you would like to hear the rest of our record. Cheers!

Friday Tune 10-24-14

You and I

Friday Tune for October 24, 2014

Here is a little something from the archive. 

I don't often write vocal songs, but when Titos Sompa and I created "Mbongi", we had the talents of not only Titos' voice, but Grammy winning singers Skyler Jett and Jeanie Tracy. Simple message, "you are a part of this world..."

In the Shadow of Saturn

In the Shadow of Saturn

When my son was in grade school and my daughter was in High School, I asked them to help me with the filming of a couple of public service announcements. They were asked to be in a group on camera and discuss their hopes and fears about the world. One of my son's hopes was to take his bike and ride around the rings of Saturn. That's my daughter's beautiful laugh in response.

I'll post one of these "Friday Tunes" now and then... something for you, for fun.
