I decided to make it a complete "piano music" song - but the raw beat is still available (without the piano and orchestration) and it sounds very different from this final version. it's amazing what a single chord can do to change an entire song! I keep having to remind people that I AM NOT A PIANIST! I'm a drummer, so I do tend to play the piano like a drum at times. :-)

After I made the raw beat with just the drum track and an obscure sample, I played a piano chord one day (2 months later) and the piano part was born! The bass and strings just evolved from that. This is the final version of the track i call, 'Mountains'. It's a reflective piece for me. "These mountains that I climb/ With valleys down below/..."

This is Orchestrated Hip-Hop at it's best!!

A new beat I'm working on for my Double K Beats collection. I'm working the final arrangement and tweaking some of the sounds.

Emcees, shoot me an email if you want to 'spit hot fire' on this one.

Inspirational Music from My Inspiration

I once read a definition of the word "inspirational" as being:

imparting a divine influence on the mind and soul

This music that I create has been described as "inspirational" by many listeners from around the world. I am truly blessed and humbled when I read these emails and comments from listeners.

I am blessed because of the fact that people I have never met, some on the other side of the globe, spend their most precious resource (time) listening to this "Moody instruMental Music". I am also blessed because listeners go even further to spend more time to express how much they enjoy this music.

I am humbled because I know that I am not able to "impart a divine influence on the mind and soul" of anyone. Musically, I'm not able to "perform" what I "create". (I'm not even formally "trained" or "studied" in music.)

These comments remind me of my inspiration, who is the only one who can "impart a divine influence on the mind and soul" - Jesus Christ.

All glory is His alone.

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.

Days End is one of the first tracks I created for this smooth jazz collection and the track features my piano performance reflecting a recent vacation trip to Utah with my family.

I created this track on January 13, 2007, but I left it "on the shelf" because I didn't feel that it was complete. However, listening to it today, I was blown away at the simplicity - and it just fit my mood for the day. It's amazing how music can do that!

I sent you a message a while back but never got a response. You are probably the main reason I gave up my Mpc 2500 and went with Reason and the Mpd 32....I'm still making music with the combo....thanks Taurus. :-)
