Babette

Quick, violin-led jazz waltz. Violin leads with fast, intricate melody line soaring over a bed of laid-back jazz waltz rhythm on double bass, Spanish guitar and percussion. Spanish guitar takes a solo, over the soft, shuffle of acoustic guitar and percussion. Violin returns.Intriguing, mysterious and positive, European jazz for an advert traversing the cobbled streets of a French city in a new Renault, or for a bright-eyed, Woody Allen-style cinematic love letter to Europe.

Bed track has no violin or guitar solos, more prominent double bass.

Sunset on the Beach

Classic surf rock. Drum intro, followed by mysterious bass guitar, then wonky effects-laden surf guitar chords like the wavy sky at sunset.. Bass and drums underpin a plucked guitar section, joined by the vintage sound of Hammond organ and more distorted electric guitar chords. Wobbly surf guitar solo, then organ break over big chords. Another guitar solo to fade out. Cool, seductive and atmospheric, a retro nod to the music of Quentin Tarantino films. Pure Pulp Fiction, would suit an advert playing on cult film references, or involving smokin’ hot BBQ meats, or a TV homage to Twin Peaks-style dark Americana.

All In The Family

Country-style violin-led track. Walking bass, drums, gently strummed guitar and a jaunty fiddle melody. Energetic electric slide guitar solo introduced in new section.

Special Delivery

No nonsense rock ‘n’ roll. Powerful electric guitar intro riff, joined by drums and intense soloing guitar. Straight up drums with noodling electric guitar soloing in bursts. Lighter, more 60s vibe to the next section. Brash, bold and self-assured. Reminiscent of Neil Young’s more rock ‘n’ roll moments, or of a 1970s hyper-masculine rock band or Mick Jagger throwing shapes. A School of Rock-style solid jam for TV or Doc moments where strutting and playing air guitar are required and encouraged.

Nothing Matters But The Joy

An upbeat, but relaxed, steady jazz jam on piano, guitar, double bass and drums. Jazz piano to start, joined by double bass and cymbal rattles. Electric guitar takes the melody with piano chord progressions underneath. Guitar solos, with drums and bass intensifying before dropping out, leaving the piano to take an intimate solo turn. All return to the original melody, keeping things sweet, with guitar gently improvising. Happy, hopeful, fun, safe and wholesome. The opening credits of a film set on the East Coast of the US, driving home over crunchy Autumn leaves, met by a happy dog at the door. Safe and warm in wholesome America. Or it could be New York in the 80s of goofy feelgood American comedy .Three Men and A Baby without the drama.

Pagume

African jazz instrumental. Snaking double bass intro, joined by jazz drums, vibraphone, electric guitar and keyboard playing a rhythmic motif. Change of rhythm, horn blasts then saxophone melody, subtle African-jazz style, effects-heavy electric guitar solo, brass noise before vibraphone motif returns and all play until the finish. Intriguing, exotic and sensual, with hints of Mulatu Astatke and a little Fela Kuti influence, would suit a travel documentary or Film/TV scene evoking the spirit of a hot night in urban 1970s Africa.
