Featured Tracks Playlist May 2022


For May’s featured tracks playlist, I added three tracks from my new cd Told Ya. The first track is Just Stay, next up is a fun track named For All The Good Times and the last track is named Blues Ain’t Blue Enough. Remember to hear the full tracks, check out my YouTube channel, Spotify, Amazon Music and my website.


To start us off is Just Stay. This song is what I call a power ballad but this track has so much more to it. At its heart, this is a love song, asking your love to, Just Stay. While I was writing this track I wanted something that bridged Smooth Jazz and Power Ballads. So, in this track I went big, starting off soft and simple with just Rhodes electric piano sound and bass guitar but this track really builds. I’m playing the Ibanez Hollow Body guitar for the melody along with a Grand Piano sound. The guitar solo, at the end of the track is played using the Gibson SG. The third section of this track takes the song to a whole new level. With horns, strings, killer walking bass line and a killer guitar solo on top, the track rocks. Lets give Just Stay a listen.

Next up is For All The Good Times. This track was is much fun to write and play. I love playing cool licks on the guitar and keyboards, talking back and forth to each other. In this track they are in a conversation. The walking bass sets the rules for the conversation. I’m playing the chords on the Rhodes piano sound and the melody is the Grand Piano sound. The guitar melody and solo is played on the Gibson SG. The guitar chords I played on my Fender Acoustic Eclectic. Let’s give For All The Good Times a listen.

The last track is Blues Ain’t Blue Enough. As the title suggests, this is a blues track. In this track I kept it really simple with just the four instruments. I’m playing the Fender Stratocaster for the melody and solo. The blues walking bass in this track is just cool. On the keyboard side I‘m playing the piano chords using the Grand Piano sound, the Hammond Organ sound is covering the melody and keyboard solo. This track has some very cool drum programming in it. While this is a blues track it also feels like a sad ballad. I almost named it, Can’t You See, but when I let my son Chris, an amazing pianist, listen to the track he said “Blue’s Ain’t Blue enough for this track dad” and so it was named. Let’s give Blues Ain’t Blue Enough a listen.
