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.

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.

Jazzting

Dynamic, laid-back 90s jazz/lounge track. Shuffling jazz drums, warped sun-soaked synths, jazzy bass riff and delay-laden melodies. Chilled, fuzzy and a bit off-kilter, with hints of Stereolab and trip-hop. Perfect for a TV/Film sequence or montage moving across a landscape dappled in multi-hued sun spots.

Purple Bar Swing

Breezy lounge-jazz number on saxophone, piano, strings and drums. Sax melody introduced from the beginning. Smooth sax solo accompanied by piano, drums and strings before return to the melody and a fade out. Smooth and laid-back, suitable for a TV or Film montage or link sequence, or a nostalgic advert. Frasier meets 1980s/90s lounge music.

Underworld

Smooth electronica. Cold synth chords with heavy delay, bubbling bass synth notes, 90s trip hop-style drums, glitchy beats, fuzzy electronics and icy synths. Steady groove throughout. New section to finish: effects-laden piano and spacey synths take over. Fade out. Laid-back, cool, calm and detached, perfect for a TV Documentary in a clinical setting…Nurses on Call, Daredevil Doctors, or a smooth corporate video.

Memories of Blue

Peaceful synth track. Sparse, hazy Rhodes piano chords, dreamy sustained synth strings create a suspended sense of movement. Chilled, comforting and nostalgic, a hypnotic track with a slight lounge/jazz feel. Like the soundtrack to an expensive spa treatment, would also suit tv/docs about the natural world.

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.

Axiom (Deep House Mix)

Solid, confident house. Old school rhythmic elements accompanied with lush teasing synths, tentative pads and loungey rhodes. The track teases you, leads you into somewhere glamourous. Sunset, sultry, sophisticated dance music.

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.
