Susenyos

Instrumental soulful jazz. Theremin effect over woozy brass intro with subtle keyboard chords. Drums and bass guitar enter, brass moves to a more melodic motif. Electric guitar flourishes then electric guitar and vibraphone melody. Change of pace to a more percussive gallop rhythm with horns. Back to bass, floating theremin and lazy brass and a dreamy guitar and brass melody, like bobbing on the ocean. Upbeat, driving rhythmic section on keys, drums and guitar, punchy brass and soulful saxophone build before slowing to a finish. Relaxed, lush, warm and hopeful, would suit a retro Film/TV scene, growing in excitement, tension building, or a romantic moment on screen where tenderness swings to all out love.

Solo Piano version available.

Bat Milk

Chilled jazzy reggae track. Slow piano skank and tip-toeing bass guitar intro with surf-style guitar effects and laid back drums. Brass plays a lyrical melody that sounds like a raised eyebrow, joined by subtle sustained keyboard chords. Saxophone takes a solo, accompanied by jazz drums and skanking guitar keeping the relaxed, mid-tempo beat. Back to melody on brass, before a keyboard solo like The Specials’ Ghost Town and a fade out. Thoughtful and searching, yet relaxed and easy-going, perfect for a Film/TV scene where the protagonist is on a solo journey of discovery in a new place or a strange, intriguing situation. Would also suit an advert for a new, exotic and surprisingly tasty food or beverage.

Happy Feet (Suite)

Classic swinging brass-led jazz track. Piano, shuffling drums, syncopated strummed guitar intro. Brass enters with a fast, energetic melody sounding like When The Saints Go Marching In, or a classic big band standard. Upbeat, happy, positive and warm, harking back to the jazz-age, would suit a modern Film/TV scene set in New Orleans, contrasting old and new. Would also suit a fun and friendly advert for a family product.

Bed version omits the Brass melodies.

Desert Robes

Exotic dub track. Bubbling dub bass guitar lurches around like a ghost from Scooby Doo, wistful piano, surfy slide-style electric guitar, mysterious, exotic brass and reverb-laden electric guitar and drums all plod purposefully and carefully across the track. Saxophone solos smoothly, then duets, twangy electric guitar plays Tinariwen, desert rock-style, all in to finish. Thoughtful, exotic, mysterious and suspenseful, would suit a quiet Film/TV scene set in an intriguing, new place, our character immersed in a new and curious world.

Lunaberry Trail

Reggae instrumental track with jazz piano. Rocksteady rhythms, jazz piano solos, smooth brass interludes, bubbling bass guitar and sax solos. Relaxed and blissful at times. Summery but with an urban edge. Jamaican culture through the lens of 1970s London, perfect for Film/TV/Doc scenes set in a volatile, sweltering cityscape.

Toshiro

Reggae track with electric guitar. Keys, bass, and drums holding down the mid-tempo rhythm, warm, retro electric guitar soloing, laid back brass interludes and a faraway male vocal chorus.

Alphonso Ribelli

Laid back reggae/jazz instrumental. 1920s jazz meets reggae rhythms. Skanking piano, breezy drums, relaxed, smooth brass, reggae rhythms with vintage jazz mood and flourishes. Nostalgic, retro, relaxed and calming, would suit a 1920s-themed onscreen party or an advert for an easy-going, fun summer event.

Wormhole

Summery instrumental brass and keys track. Percussive intro, like a trap beat, joined by shimmering keys and jazz chords. Woozy effects with warm bass and smooth brass. Punchy brass section, off-kilter keys and percussion and bass solo. Blissed-out, warm, summery, upbeat but relaxed, would suit a retro Film/TV scene surveying a pool party or the hazy concrete streets of a neighbourhood block party.

Alegre

Bouncy piano and brass track. Two distinct moods in one piece. Slow, atmospheric piano section begins, before taking us on a rollicking ride on a gypsy caravan, bursting into playful oom-pah-pah piano, trumpet and double bass section with humorous vocal ‘hups’ and ‘moos’. A drum break, then piano solo with hyperactive ascending piano trills and a brass accompaniment. Ends on the thoughtful, wistful slow section once again. Pensive at first then jolly, brash and fun, would suit an advert with a distinct change in mood, from sophisticated European philosophising to a crazy Balkan farm party where the goat is driving a tractor into a barn full of chickens and trumpets.
