If Passion Didn’t Invite Us. December 26th

I hope everyone had a nice white Christmas.  We’ve gotten a foot of snow in Asheville and it’s still snowing.  I guess it’s only fitting, we started 2010 with lots of snow and I guess we’re going out like that.  Today’s song is a jazzy number.  Thanks for listening!

April 25th “Seven Ways from Sunday”

I got the quote that started today’s song from a great book I’m recording editing for author Kathy Godfrey called F’d.  It’s really good.  She’s got a lot of great phrasing in it and “Seven Ways from Sunday” is one that popped out at me.

I love to revert back to my major jazz chords to write.  I guess that’s my signature songwriting move (aside from trying to be funny).  Thanks for listening!!

Feb 2 “A Little Extra Love Today”

Playing catch up once again with the songs.  Busy week recycling in Morganton while entertaining company (and myself) from out of town in Asheville every night.

We went out and caught some great jazz down town at Mo Daddy’s.  There’s a lot of good players in Asheville and any selection from ‘Kind of Blue’ is always transcendent to see live.

Anyway, today’s song is probably inspired by my hurting body.  I worked a lot faster than usual this week so that I could get home faster and I’m a bit sore for it. That and lack of sleep directly lent to my foul mood the last few days, so today I am trying to work it all out and get back to feeling good.   My wife Adair has a blog based on feeling good every day you should check out if you haven’t.  followthefeeling.wordpress.com/

So basically “A Little Extra Love Today” is that I’m feeling like I’m needing a little extra today as I record guitar parts for another 6 or 8 hours.

Thanks for listening!!
