I'd like to be part of a project that performs some nice covers and also
incorporates original compositions from the members. It would be nice to
do a few Jam songs as a way to coax new ideas into the project. Here are
some of the songs I'm listening to now.
Please feel free to contact me with your own ideas for covers, or just
some of your own ideas.
I like house music and thought I would start with a remix of a Brecker Brothers tune.
I hope you enjoy it.
Here's a nice Kenny Garret tune
Sing a Song of Song
I dig John Scofield's "Uberjam" CD.
If you like John Scofield, here is a saxophone player that colaborates with him.
Ikiaka gave me some Robert Glasper stuff to listen to. This is worth listening to.
Jelly's Da Beeneer
Rise and Shine
He also slid me some Avishai Cohen which has led me to listen to more recording artists from New York.
Avishai Cohen's "As Is...Live At The Blue Note" CD has great feeling.
Rudresh Mahanthappa & Bunky Green.
Playing with Stones
I dig the groove on this tune.
Of course, if you're going to cover jazz, you have to do some Soulive.
Roll the Tape
Just about my favorite band is Mother Funk Conspiricy. Once you've taken a
listen I'm certain you'd agree.
DJam on Toast
Drunk Falling Down a Hill
Hambone Steak Sauce
Handle It 02
Handle It 03
Another favorite of mine is Happy Apple. I came close to doing these with a couple of
different bands, but they require a bit of rehearsal, as do most of these tunes.
The World Begins and Ends With Your Combover
Green Grass Stains on Wrangler Jeans
Here are my favorite Charlie Hunter tunes.
Run For It
Something from John Zorn
Here's a Joshua Redman tune that would be easy to score and funky to do.
