Eternal sun rise
Eternal sun riseUsing the alto sax on this dance track. Great addition to a D.J set. All music composed, engineered and recorded by myself.
Take Five (alto Sax)
Take Five (alto Sax)My take on the classic Take 5, originally performed by Paul Desmond with the Dave Brubeck trio back in 1959. Still sounds fresh and inventive today. I played this on my alto sax (rather than my usual tenor)and whilst the 5/4 time is a tricky one to play with, lets just say it was more a case of take 6 or 7 to come up with a version I am happy with.
Girl From Ipanema
Girl From IpanemaA track from upcoming smooth jazz tracks being added. Kick back and listen to smooth bossa nova of The girl from Ipanema. The famous version of 1964 sung by Astrid Gilberto and epitomised by the master of smooth tenor sax man Stan Getz

Baroque-O-bama-rama-dama-llama-bama...ding-dongA challenging piece of music to put together, inspired by the composers of the Baroque era such as Bach, not a style of music that was familiar to me and an enjoyable learning experience. 3 saxes; I took the pitch down on the tenor sax to make it sound like a baritone, added tenor and alto

I want to believe
I want to believeI wrote this traditional style jazz ballad in homage to all the jazz ballads that have influenced me as a saxophonist. Gershwin's Someone to watch over me sung by Ella Fitzgerald comes to mind. Hopefully that feel comes across, with clean guitar and Tenor sax I have kept it simple. Though, I think it is crying out for vocals, so that version is on its way...
