Kobe Time (song)

It’s crunch time for the Lakers today.  I hope they can pull it out, I’m not ready to see Phil retire.    One thing I know, is Kobe will come to play.   This is the song I wrote last year when they were about to win the finals when Kobe wouldn’t let them lose.    It’s also one of my favorite songs I’ve done (even though it’s very silly).

Pau Gasol Song. November 27th

I just had to do another NBA song.  Pau Gasol has been killing it this year.  The Laker’s new strategy is to let him be the high scorer most nights.  Kobe gets to rest up until crunch time while Pau gets serious consideration for MVP.  He’s definitely the best forward in the league now and Spain may give the U.S. a run in the London Olympics.  They’ve got Navarro and Ricky Rubio too.    Thanks for listening!

Feb 23 “Kobe and Gasol”

I can’t believe I haven’t done more songs with my Triton.   My Triton is a KORG keyboard that you can basically create anything you want with.   I’ve had mine for about eight years and the buttons are literally worn off.

I’m a big NBA basketball fan as you may have noticed and tonight Kobe and the Lakers are playing while I’m working on this song.  Great basketball is like great jazz, so I added a little jazzy guitar to the electronic sounds.

I’ll admit it, I’m a huge Kobe and Gasol fan..   And don’t even mention Ron Artest, the modern-day Rodman, one of the greatest personalities of our day and age.   Don’t worry I pull for Lebron too.   I know as a human being that I’m obligated to do that.     The Lakers in 7.
