Moody Grooves is a collection of my Moody instruMental Music with an ambitious goal - create wide-ranging moody music with the same beat. The vision is to have a collection of musical movements that are like chapters in a book.
This collection is an experiment to test my ability to vary the musical moods while keeping a major foundational part constant. I wanted to see and hear what I could come up with when I just kept the beat the same for different tracks. Some great music is what I created in the end!
With a mix of piano-featured, beat-intense and dramatically-orchestrated tracks, this collection has great tracks that can be used for background music for thinking and reflection. It also has some smooth grooves to relax to along with some intense tracks to stir the emotions.

Piano Instrumental Music, Hip Hop, Original Music
My music compositions process was pretty much the same as always. First, I constructed the beat. Then, I developed a chord progression and bass line. Next, I developed melodies through piano improvisation. Finally, I wrapped the whole thing with orchestral instrumentation.
The final result of this piano-featured instrumental music reminds me of an interesting cross between part of the "Sesame Street" theme song and "Can You Stand The Rain" by New Edition (produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis).
My Favorite Part is the piano. The different expressions I came up with in the two verses are pretty cool, and the way I changed the mood in each verse is nice, too. Like a lot of my moody instrumental music, this song has a big ending that contrasts the beginning verse. You gotta listen to the whole song to get the changes.
I named this song "Sunny Days" because the music reminds me that storms and cloudy days don't last forever. I want to encourage people who listen to this moody instrumental to really appreciate the sunny days in life. Troubles don't last always. Dark storms give way to "Sunny Days".
Sample flip beat accented with various instrumentation, including: piano, electric keys (Rhodes), strings, horns (trumpets, french horns and trombones)

Make Beats with Reason: Layering Samples - "Better" Sample Flip Beat
I made this video showing how I chopped and flipped the sample from Darwin Hobbs' "Better Is One Day" from his Worshipper album. In this video, I show how I layer samples in the NNXT device. The beat I'm working on in this video is called "Better" .
Futuristic pulsating cinematic groove with Chinese Erhu
This version of Hood Butterflies has no samples and was customized for use by a German company.
I'll never understand why you traded your life for mine, but I'm so grateful that you did.
It's an awesome thing when you know that you are loved. Even when everything seems to be completely messed up or destroyed all around you, knowing that you are loved gives you enough to take one more step and take one more breath.
To all of you who have taken the time to check out this moody instrumental music, I hope you know that you are loved.
Country music, Smooth Jazz Meets Moody Instrumental Music
Turns out to be a pretty smooth groove.
This is one of my experimental piano/orchestrated tracks with more of a soulful sorrow that moves to a bit of brightness toward the end.
As much as they hurt, the thorns in my life remind me that I am still feeling.
Okay, Diary is a break from the concept of this collection because it does not have the same beat or beat structure as other songs in the collection. This is one of those "spur-of-the-moment" tracks that I created after hearing the original by Alicia Keys. I just wanted to see if I could lay some of my own keys on the track.
Hey, if I don't do these experimental piano beats, I'll never find out what I can do.
Life Story Music by TaurusM. James
Original Piano, Smooth Jazz, Moody Instrumental Music by Taurus M. James
Making friends is hard for me, for many different reasons. So, when I lose a friend, it hurts like this.
Picture a child in the woods looking for his lost friend and asking all the (personified) elements of nature if they have seen his friend.
Original Piano, Epic, Cinematic, Life Story, Moody Instrumental Music by Taurus M/ James
This is a "piano freestyle" over an epic, cinematic, moody instrumental sample flip beat I made featuring Van Morrison's Snow in San Anselmo.
This is a cinematic sample flip beat that tells part of my life story. This is a happier track as it reflects on happy moments in my life.
Be sure to pay attention to how i flip the samples and make everything work together to build a beautiful musical composition.
Flo is the track that started this whole collection. I came up with the idea of making a collection with the same beat (structure) after creating this track. I wanted to see if I could develop a collection that canges moods while keeping the same pace. So much of what I make here on TaurusBeats.com has such a heavy emphasis on the BEATS, I wanted to make the actual beats less important. The challenge is to make each song interesting enough on its own to keep the collection as a whole from being boring.
