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.

Not My Ask

Romantic jazz instrumental. Breathy saxophone melody, softly strummed guitar and gentle piano chords, joined by a selection of strings playing the undulating melodic idea in canon. Saxophone plays out before melting away to sultry breathiness again for the wistful mid-section. Strings wail, clarinet cuts through as the track builds in intensity before a quiet, reduced ending. Beautiful, sensual, intense and thoughtful, like the soulful East African jazz of Étiopiques. Would suit a highly charged, tender, romantic moment on TV/Film, or a reflective advert for something very special.

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.

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.

Lazy Susan

Summery dub reggae track with saxophone. Laid back skanking rhythms on electric guitar, steady drums, warm delay and reverb laden keys and guitar, sporadic saxophone melodies and whistle interludes. So laid back it’s horizontal…intricate, expertly balanced melodies and reggae rhythms for a sun-soaked advert or TV/Film scene.

Sierra Madre

Upbeat dub reggae/jazz/Balkan mix. Energetic vocal exclamation opens the track. Steady upbeat skanking on guitar joined by laid back saxophone, intermittent piano, ramshackle drums and bold vocal samples. Fun and energetic, but sunny and relaxed, would suit an advert for something synonymous with summer or a TV/Film playful party scene.

Even Once (Suite)

Wistful solo jazz piano. A sustained note intro like raindrops followed by jazz chords, piano trills and a full melody. Pastoral, breathless and new, calling to mind the natural landscape, would suit a thoughtful film/doc/TV scene passing over a lush landscape refreshed and awake after a storm or a long winter.

Multi-instrumental version with warm strings, mellow saxophone and shuffling percussion joined by tinkling piano and a freak folk chorus of faraway voices, calling to mind Wickerman-style pagan England.

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.

Ambling

Relaxed reggae/jazz track. Mellow, plodding bass with a slow guitar skank to start. Laid back brass enters, piano solos around the same riff, followed by a strange meandering reverb-heavy sax solo. All then riff together to an unexpected electronic ending. Warm, relaxed, jazzy yet sparse, subtle reggae to suit a blissed-out advert or Film/TV scenes of lazing on a Caribbean island, or chilling in a hot and hazy inner city block party.
