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.

Why I Call This Track "Tam Jam"

Named after my daughter, Tamilym

What I Used to Make "Tam Jam"

I used my Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a keyboard controller for Propellerhead Reason. I connect the DJX keyboard to my PC via a MIDI cable. Inside Reason, I use the NN-XT Advanced Samples for the Grand Piano sounds.

Here I am using the AKAI MPD32 USB/MIDI PAD CONTROLLER to trigger sounds in Propellerhead Reason devices while making "The Changing". This track contains a sample from George Benson's "The Changing World" - the sample Common used for "I Used to Love H.E.R.".

The Way - reason 4 beat instrumental sample flip piano beat

This is a sample-flip beat video / piano music video combination showing how I create moody instrumental music with a ton of piano improvisation and playing by ear. In the beginning of the video, I flip a sample to make a background beat and then later, I improvise on the piano after figuring out the key the beat is in by ear. I develop the rest of the piano parts and instrumentation into the final song. I mad this beat using Propellerhead Reason 4, the Akai MPD32 and the M-Audio Oxygen8 v2 MIDI controllers.

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya. I also learned that your a drummer - me to! When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows. I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know! I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood. Peace bruv Andy D, birmingham UK.
