Piano Freestyle Funk Smooth Jazz Groove by Taurus M. James
Flo is the track that started this whole Moody Grooves 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 changes 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.
Here is the video of the piano freestyle parts I created.
I'm using my trusty Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as the trigger/control surface for the software devices in Propellerhead Reason. I tend to use the NN-XT Advanced Sampler in Reason the most because it allows a great amount of control and it has a vast and diverse instrument range.
I use the ReDrum and DrRex devices in Reason to create the drum patterns. Again, I trigger everything with the Yamaha DJX.
