When I Run

Jazz-pop instrumental. Drum roll, Rhodes piano intro, then a punchy brass riff. Steady drum and keyboard groove before the riff returns. Trumpet solo. Laid back, upbeat and positive, like a slightly cheesy theme tune to a jolly American sitcom.

Ramble

Saxophone led smooth jazz track. Delicate walking double bass, playful jazz drums, subtle guitar chords and soloing saxophone to start. Masterful gentle electric guitar solo then back to sax melody. Upbeat, cool and casual, classic Count Basie-style jazz, perfect as bustling background music for Adverts and Documentaries or for a fast-paced retro montage on TV/Film.

Bed track with No Saxophone available.

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.

’40s Swoon

Snippet of dreamy 1940s big band music. Lush orchestral strings, tinkling piano, shuffling drums and a warm, vocal chorus swell effect. Warm, retro and uplifting, jazzy, old-fashioned music for swaying gently to, at the holidays, while dressed to the nines, in 1940s America.

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.

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.

In Response

A warm jazz-influenced piano instrumental. A simple call and answer piano introduces the main melodic motif. This theme is developed through the piece into fuller jazz chords and improvised jazzy melodic fills. Slight change in tone then returns to the original motif. Warm, comfortable, secure and wholesome, made for a film/tv soundtrack to an emotional reunion or a goodbye-for-now-, set in a east coast US town as the leaves turn shades of red and gold.

Lydia

Relaxed jazz/lounge instrumental. Easy breezy intro of soothing retro keys, plodding double bass and shuffling drums, Then woozy, effects-laden guitar, psychedelic keys and warm, lazy brass. Grows in volume and power to an enveloping brass section. Calm, chilled, expansive and hypnotising, a jazzy dart of tranquillising calm for TV/Film/adverts.
