ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a collection of songs written and recorded between the late 1980's and the early 2000's. Much of it was done in a primitive MIDI studio and recorded to a 4-track cassette deck. It's got that warm analog sound! The keyboard and sax work are all done by Paul. There are guests on several tracks - primarily providing vocals. The variety of styles made it difficult to select one genre. The chart styles cover the range from jazz standards, big band swing, latin flavored, ballads, and funk. The songs are all original compositions.

Several of these songs were originally released on mp3.com back in the late 90's where a few found global chart topping success.

Parker 'N Diz is a jazz standard style tune with my alto giving a nod to Charlie Parker while guest Bob Penick covers Dizzy Gillespie. Think of You is a swinging jazz standard featuring the vocals of Stephanie Mayo. Fajita is a latin flavored piece featuring the alto saxophone harmonizing with synth sounds played on a Yamaha WX7 wind controller. Marimba Blues is a synth based marimba sound jam session. Imagine What You Do To Me is another swinging vocal, this time featuring Judy Hester. Dilbert is a Documentary is a commentary on the occasional frustrations of a corporate day job with great vocals by Dean Krippaehne. Haven't Got A Klugh is a jazzy synth guitar sound on an up tempo chart. Skunk Funk is a thick funk tune with a David Sanborn style sax solo. Street Corner Blues is me doing multi-part vocal harmony with some synth help. Los Gatos is a salsa flavored sax feature. Elena is a ballad that I wrote for my lovely wife. Ear LOrBEr is rhythmic jazz chart with a flute melody. Inspiration is a mellow ballad.
