Some New Recordings
I’ve added a few new tracks to the Audio page today. Two of them are live cuts with Jody Mulgrew, my great musical pal. The Cove is my song and Jack of Hearts is his. They were both sung at the Greco’s in Shell Beach, a couple of years apart. We plan to do some shows together next year, and I’m excited, it’s been a long time.
The last cut is one of my favorite songs, Nature Boy, by eden ahbez. I knew the melody, but I didn’t know the chords, so as an exercise, I harmonized it from scratch using the lattice. The melody wanders around the map, and the harmonies support and accent it in different ways as they follow (and lead) it around. When I finished, I looked up the chords online, and was pleased to find that my progression was different than the official one — I had made the song my own. Good exercise.
