SUMMER LOVERS - (JAMES D TRAIN WILLIAMS - SINGING)
SUMMER LOVERS - (JAMES D TRAIN WILLIAMS - SINGING)This is a very chill out track that I wrote about Summer Lovers. The studio line up is world class; Featuring James D Train Williams - vocals, Jay Gonzalez - Tenor Sax, Reggie Washington - bass, Brian Dunne (played drums for Hall & Oates for 20 years!), Christian Ver Halen - guitar, plus Jason Miles - keyboards.
DO YOU REMEMBER - EMILY BINDIGER SINGING
DO YOU REMEMBER - EMILY BINDIGER SINGINGI wrote this song for my parents; George John Austin and Betty Austin who were married for over 50 years. My Father was a very good semi-pro Jazz guitarist who played with some outstanding musicians like Tubby Hayes (probably acknowledged as one of the best Tenor Sax players) the UK ever produced. In addition, to recording on the eponymous Jazz 625 programme in 1963 with the brilliant 19 year old Dudley Moore. I commissioned Jason Miles (again) to re-arrange and re-record this song, who used Emily Bindiger to sing. I think her interpretation of this song is so sensitive and lovely, with Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo on guitar, Reggie Washington on bass, Philip Dizack on trumpet and Jason on keyboards and arranger. The musicians performing on this song are world class and therefore the production on this particular track is absolutely top knotch
WHEN I LEARN TO FLY
WHEN I LEARN TO FLYThis is an easy listening song about how life changes as the decades go by. But, LOVE is constant and never changes it's always strong!

COTTON CANDY LIES - SCAMP
COTTON CANDY LIES - SCAMPAbout a young architect in Brighton who met, and then fell in love, had children with a lovely young woman! Or so he thought.........>! This chap had two children with this girl then after a couple of years he noticed valuable items missing in their home. He found out through social media that she had previously been a heavy drug addict and dealer! Hence the title "Cotton Candy Lies!", because she was such a good liar!
COTTON CANDY LIES
COTTON CANDY LIESIt's about a clean living trainee architect who is totally blameless that falls in love with an ex-drug addict! They get married, have children and before you know it a lot of his stuff disappears, his wife is back on the 'SMACK'. When she is using everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie! Based on a true story of some poor chap in Brighton. The Argos published when he went to court the idiotic judge awarded his drug addict wife custody of the two children! Whereas, he did not even drink, was a hardworking architect! That stupid politically correct decision was thrown out by a High Court female judge who commented that the previous decision was unfair and unconscionable!

TEACH ME THE WAY OF THE LIGHT
TEACH ME THE WAY OF THE LIGHTI will be totally honest this was an experiment! As I struggle to believe in the idea that there actually is an intelligent super entity looking over us!
