Madrid

This instrumental track warmly creates a beautifully evocative and romantic Spanish landscape - with a bit of trumpet fire at the climactic conclusion.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
All instruments performed, recorded, mixed, mastered by Jeff Miller.

"This was re-mixed & remastered in October, 2010. Some of the original demo tracks were kept, and some were re-recorded in Oct 2010. Madrid was a song written towards the end of the writing of "River To The Sea". Even though I feel it's musically stronger than some other songs on that album, it simply didn't stylistically fit on that album, so it got put on the shelf. There was a vocal melody that Buzz (Saylor - Simon Apple drummer) and I worked on, but never quite solidified. Buzz wrote a lyric, but I don't think that was ever 100% complete either... the lyric and melody were in the ballpark, but were never fully tweaked - especially after we realized it didn't stylistically fit anyway."

"Musically, I feel this is one of the strongest songs I've written - and one of my personal favorites. This is another song, like "Taken Root" (from River To The Sea album) and "Can You Hear Me" (Jeff Miller single), that has a strong Pat Metheny Group influence. I've always loved the romanticism of Spanish/Latin based music - like Chick Corea, or some Pat Metheny Group stuff that delves into that area, and I tried to capture that vibe with my own little twist/style."

Jeff Miller is a founding member of the band, Simon Apple, where he serves as a primary composer, keyboardist, guitarist, and producer. Simon Apple charted several songs in the U.S. Adult Contemporary Top 40. Jeff has performed with Grammy-winning and multi-platinum artists, and has played small intimate venues, 65,000 seat stadiums, and everything in between. Jeff also has several sacred choral songs published worldwide, and has written music for tv (NBC, HBO, MTV, VH-1, etc).
