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!
