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!

What I Used to Make "Feels Good'"

"Like It" Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

This is one of the sample flip beats in my latest Moody instruMental Music collection "Christ Beats" available for you to download here at TaurusBeats.com. I made this for the Computer Music Academy (CMA) Weekly Homework Assignment #41.

I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. Be sure to check out my Reason Beat Making Video Tutorials, where I show you how to make Moody instruMental Music and sample flip beats.

So technically this is Week #2 of WHA/WHP for 2014. I had the great idea of reliving the flawless victory that was Week #2 of 2013, but with another Bob James sample. Problem is, I couldn't settle on one, so this quick became a Bob James dedication show. Every CMA member that submitted, stood up and represented. Enough talking. Press play and enjoy!
