The Story Behind Soul On Ice

Here I am making the Soul On Ice sample flip beat, smooth jazz piano instrumental. What I am calling a sample flip beat is actually more of a smooth jazz instrumental song. because I end up performing impromptu, improvised piano parts over the finished beat.

Why "Soul On Ice"? I had just completed reading the book, Soul On Ice, by Eldridge Cleaver. You can see the book in the video next to my computer display monitor.

I started out with the sample and trying to figure out how I was going to use it. At first, I was going to do a hip-hop track at around 94 beats per minute, but while playing with the sample, I was hearing a faster tempo with a piano solo. So, that moved me into the contemporary jazz genre.

The video doesn't capture me recording the piano solo. I don't pre-write the piano parts (or any parts), it's all improvisation with me just playing what I feel from the track by ear. It's all about being in the moment. If I have to think about setting up the camera, I'll never get the solo down.

This is one I would love to have guitarist, Curtis Price, play on. Maybe one day soon.

Now you can Look, Listen and Enjoy!
