Cool EP, muted trumpet, and a layed back bass.
Sort of a minor mid-tempo jazz combo with 2 pianos. Melody is doubled in octaves. Soloist goes outside more than the guy comping... but hey - what are soloists for?
Oh hello. I didn't see you there. Welcome to my pad. My favorite parts are the view of the beach, and this very groovy orange shag-carpeting on the walls. I still haven't been able to teach my Roombas to get up by the ceiling, though.
The jaunty bass line keeps this short piece moving at a solid pace, while the vibraphone and saxophones play the swinging melody, until the bright, thump of an ending. Use this piece as a slick transition between scenes or for the background to a short scene of drinking, gambling, or dancing.
Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.
Light and airy, this piece is guaranteed not to steal focus.
The year is... I have no idea. Timeless. Could be now, could be in the 1950s. Super cool jazz for your hardcore detectives! Also useful for beat poets! Also useful for ennui or boredom! Well, interesting sorts of boredom. You can download this in high quality with separate instrument files here!
Funky stuff! Jazz-like. That keyboardist is really killin' it.
This one got turned up to 11. I started producing this as a parody... then I really started liking it, so I guess it is a pastiche now? Oh, man... I wish there was an allowance for pastiche in copyright like there is for parody.
Sort of Spanish, sort of Tom Waits. This one is hard to classify.
Jazzy! Gumshoe-y! Mystery-y! I suck at making adjectives. Who needs adjectives anyway! I'm fine without adjectives. How fine without adjectives, you may ask? I can't say - as that would require some sort of descriptor! And I don't need descriptors in my writings... Maybe one... tiny little... NO! What am I thinking!? I refuse! I've completely had it with adjectives! Hah! Adverbs work perfectly fine! Woohoo! Adverbs! And before I get mail... adjectives killed my family, so I can go off on them all I want.
Nice little non-offending light jazz piece for vibes. Uncompressed AIFF version, along with solo tracks are available for purchase here. The purchase is media only; it is not a license.
The scene is set for a surreptitious heist or furtive affair. The fingered acoustic bass sounds woody and dark while playing against the light cymbals and the vibrant electric piano and trumpet. The individual instruments have a slight battle for dominance, but the persistence of the slick styled bass ultimately wins.
A piece of music from a more elegant time, 1940. This is a beautiful slow piece that will make you want to pick up some champagne and go off slow dancing with people... or penguins. I like penguins. And now some searchable words: Big Band. 1940s. Forties. Formal Party. Penguin Slow Dance. No Whammies. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Hey buddy, that is quite the sack of onions you have! If I had a sack of onions like that, I'd be happier than a tree on Arbor Day! Everyone wants to get their hand in an onion sack like that. Me? I like a nice purple onion, but you don't get to pick favorites when you got your hand in an onion sack. A big yellow one can feel like a little purple one. You won't know 'til you pull it out, and by then you already got yourself an onion. I know most folks don't want strangers mucking about in unfamiliar onion sacks these days, so I'll be on my way. But, that is quite the sack of onions you have. To perform the monolog "Onion Capers" at your school or event, speak the words out loud at your school or event.
