All Alone (Suite)

Wistful lounge-jazz number. Yearning, saxophone, louche piano, gentle shuffling drums and calm, plodding double bass. Dreamy, nostalgic and romantic and relaxed, suitable for a retro TV/Film scene, a first dance between new lovers, or reminiscing on a first love, now a distant memory. A throw-back to the love stories of old black-and-white films.

Bed track has no sax, more subtle, calm and chilled.

Late Night Rendezvous

Sultry late night jazz. Skulking double bass, romantic celeste melody, lazy, loping jazz drums. Smooth saxophone solos over the laid back foundation. Moody, seductive, late night jazz, would suit a slow-paced advert or retro, nostalgic TV/Film scene where our characters’ eyes meet across a half-empty bar…a lovesick detective and a sassy divorcee…both tired and jaded…but have they given up on love?

Bed track features Drums and Double Bass Only.

I’m Mystified

Smooth lounge jazz number. Piano chords, double bass patter and soft drums begin, joined by wistful saxophone melody. Piano takes a dynamic solo accompanied by drums and more busy double bass. Back to emotional sax melody. Nostalgic, warm and fuzzy, yet cool and laid back, perfect for a romantic old-school TV/Film sequence, Casablanca-style star-crossed lovers staring sadly into their stylish cocktails, intoxicated by love.

Bed track has No Saxophone.

Let Me Grab My Cloak And Dagger

Slinky jazzy harpsichord track. Walking jazz double bass, dynamic hand drums, two intersecting lines of snaking jazz harpsichord melodies. Mysterious, intriguing and playful, suitable for a short advert for a cheeky product, offering you a handy shortcut to making an impressive meal, or a Pink Panther-style mystery on TV/Film.

‘Underscore’ version features bass and drums only.

Focus (Dharana)

A slow and unhurried build with synth strings and radiant tonal swirls. A roving bass line joins at 0:40. At 2:09 it breaks into something classy, a laid back but grooving rhythm section bears down and comes into its own at 3:33, losing the swirling synths, but adding rhythmic piano stabs. At 7:05 the swirls are back but now pulsing in time; at 7:49 our original strings and swirls are back again, finally at 9:14 the track gradually breaks down towards a faded end. Glamourous and dreamy with a killer groove. I’d imagine this working for a sophisticated branding video, for luxury products and/or spaces.

Manifest

Solo jazz piano track. Dramatic sparse piano chords, with quieter, sweeter interludes. A dissonant chord break with moments of consonance and hope, before a melodic slightly lounge-jazz section. Another chord break, returns to sparse, lovelorn chord clashes. Another moment of sweet reverie before the final despairing dramatic chords. Romantic, melancholy, thoughtful, would suit a reflective arthouse Film/TV scene, a lonely walk, conflicted, thinking of the other, or sitting at the bar, alone and dishevelled.

The Art of Being Sneaky

Pink Panther-esque jazz instrumental. Double Bass jazz motif tip-toes across the track, joined by clipped hand drums, Rhodes piano keyboard sound and sound effects. Mysterious, playful and suspenseful, perfect for an onscreen intrigue or a pastiche of retro whodunnits.

13 sec version available.

Two

Relaxed rhodes piano with scatterings of upright bass, this is lounge jazz at its loungiest. Bordering on cheese but never quite getting there, feels like slightly kitsch splendour, glossy wonder, plastic fantastic, dripping with minimal sophistication. “Is that a cocktail shaker in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”. Perfect for opulent scenes.

Lounging House (Suite)

I’m imagining a rich boutique, a decadent tropical showcase, a sumptuous playground for the rich and opulent. You’re not coming in here mate, them shoes is casual. Laid back beats, rich textures, a chilled mood.
