Smooth James Smooth Jazz

My love for contemporary jazz and Smooth Jazz has grown a great deal over the years and I have started to think of it as "Grown-Man HipHop". Smooth James is my collection of jazzy, piano moody instrumental music and it isthe start of a different musical path for me.


This Memorial Day weekend was great. The weather was beautiful. Plus, we celebrated our daughter's first birthday with a pretty big party for a 1-year-old. Some family flew out here to Cali from Alabama. With all of that, I got to thinking, "Man, it sure feels good."

That's when I turned on my DAW, started Reason, sat at the keyboard and put together this nice little "feel good" track. This is feel-good music for a nice ride along the PCH (or a nice long stretch of scenic highway, wherever you are) on a sunny afternoon.

I just wanted a "playful" piano over a steady acoustic guitar rhythm, upright bass and simple, head-knoddin' drum beat. I added some strings (cellos and violins) for an added feel-good effect.

I hope you feel good after listening to this one!

Oh, yeah! Please remember that I'm a drummer not a pianist, guitarist, bassist, cellist or violinist.

Enjoy!

Christmas Bach

Christmas Bach is Moody Instrumental Muse by TaurusBeats in Propellerhead Reason

Christmas Bach is one of my epic, experimental music tracks with more of my piano play along with cinematic orchestration and wind noise. I try to convey a story in this one, with several movements throughout the piece. This is my reflection of the Christmas story using Bach's piece as a formal introduction to my retelling of this epic story - "God with us" - the Christmas story.

The Christmas story is pretty outrageous and dramatic when you stop to think about it. Here you have this all-powerful God choosing to present himself as a man. If that statement isn't outrageous enough, this God chooses to be born of a woman, reared as a human child in pretty horrific circumstances. (With the incumbent king's decree to kill all male babies in an effort to eliminate the "God-child", I'd say that's pretty horrific.)

The all-powerful God presents himself on earth as a powerless child with the purpose of reconciling mankind to himself. Yeah, this story is so outrageous! But I believe it!

The cable television network, TNT, likes to say, "We know drama." They can't even come close to this one when it comes to drama!

What's good fam ? Yo I replied about that track earlier "When Im Gone". Man I need that joint super bad. I kept listening to it over and over and I already got a song wrote for it. Its about my grandmother that died while I was holding her hand and how I was rebellious but she continued to pray for me and I didn't give my life to Christ until after she passed. Man its mad emotional I was crying while I wrote it. Please get back at me fam. Grace and Peace - Ricon

Dear Taurus,
I was searching on the internet to find out how I can possibly learn how to compose music. I write alot of lyrics but have the slightest clue on how to create music for them. Anyway I came across your website in the search engine and after listening to all, I mean every instrumental on here, I just had to tell you WOW!!! Your music is so heartfelt. Absolutely beautiful. And I must say very inspiring!!. Hopefully someday I can find a way to let myself be heard through music. Good Luck in all you do.

Sincerely Deena
