A Night In Tunisia

I'd had this track in mind for some time but couldn't see how to approach it - until I actually did! It's another great jazz standard with that strong piano bass line. I put a House beat over the top, keeping the acoustic drums. I gave up on the guitar playing the main melody line, opting for synth instead. The solo fell into place quite naturally and, a couple of mixing hours later, it was done. Well as far as any track is done - they say you never finish a track, you just stop working on it! "A Night in Tunisia" or "Night in Tunisia" is a musical composition written by Dizzy Gillespie circa 1941-2 while Gillespie was playing with the Benny Carter Band.

A Remark You Made

A modern re-imagining for guitar of the Weather Report track from the Heavy Weather album. On it I take the melody line Wayne Shorter plays and I play it on guitar. Written by Joe Zawinul

A Warm Summer’s Night with Friends

The title says it all about this track! very simple piano, guitar drums. The solo is too long but it was done some years ago.

After Midnight

Starts off as a jazz rock track with horns then changes to a sweeter jazz groove

After The Love Has Gone

I have two versions of this, this one features the very talented Vocalatti

After The Love Has Gone

Super smooth jazz INSTRUMENTAL version of the great EW&F ballad. You can't go wrong with EWF!

Aja

Deacon Blues is another classic Steely Dan track off the Aja album.

All Blues

For this track I've gone back to my blues roots. The solo starts off very clean but soon descends into anarchy. The name of the preset I used on my guitar pedal is 'Bonamassa' that should tell you all you need to know! Seriously, the wah wah Rock Blues thing is how I used to do it. So now I have proven I still can get down mean and dirtay. All Blues is classic Miles Davis first appearing on the influential 1959 Columbia album Kind of Blue

Alone together

Miles Davis did this tune on his Blue Moods album (1955), released on Charles Mingus' Debut Records label. It brings Davis together with Mingus on bass, trombonist Britt Woodman, vibraphonist Teddy Charles, and drummer Elvin Jones. The arrangement of "Alone Together" is by Mingus, while the other tracks were arranged by Charles. "Alone Together" was composed by Arthur Schwartz with lyrics by Howard Dietz. It was introduced in the Broadway musical Flying Colors in 1932 by Jean Sargent. The song soon became a hit, with Leo Reisman and His Orchestra's 1932 recording being the first to reach the charts. It is the most popular of Schwartz and Dietz's collaborations and has become a jazz standard.

Always

This track could do with some real horns but still enjoyable!

An English Man In New-York

This is another Sting song I play mostly on guitar but hand over the chorus to trumpet. Don't miss the use of the "whammy bar" on the solo! The "Englishman" in question Sting refers to is the famous eccentric and gay icon Quentin Crisp. Sting wrote the song not long after Crisp moved from London to an apartment in the Bowery in Manhattan. Crisp had remarked jokingly to the musician "that he looked forward to receiving his naturalization papers so that he could commit a crime and not be deported."

Autumn Leaves

This is Autumn leaves as you've never heard it before. It's Autumn leaves on acid! There's a loop mash beat, some crazy Techno stutters, and inappropriate instrumentation. Originally it was a 1945 French song "Les feuilles mortes" (literally "The Dead Leaves") with music by Hungarian-French composer Joseph Kosma.

Bad

Who's Bad? Me? The classic track off the Thriller album done smooth jazz style.

Bad Sneakers

I've really given this on a pop dance treatment. There's Electro and Disco going on in different places. Otherwise it's business as usual, the lead guitar picking out the melody and a solo later on (at 1 min 50) Bad Sneakers was released as the second track on the Steelies 1975 album Katy Lied. Apparently producer Gary Katz later regretted not releasing the song as the first single.

Beat It

OK, I'll stick my hands up! I went a bit OTT with the guitar on this one! Watch out Eddie Van Halen, the jazz guy's got overdrive too! My version is not as rocky as Jacksons, it's peppered with jazz chords rather than rock riffs. See if you can spot the Earth, Wind and Fire horn section parts. From a guitar players point of view the original had one of the top 5 guitar solos of all time. On this occasion I didn't bother to learn it note for note, just the spirit of it (so loads of fretboard tapping). I do a second solo later on, which is pure me! It is the third single from Jacko's sixth solo album, Thriller (1982).
