Sketches & Demos

I tinker a lot. Some things grow wings and get off the ground, others end up in the junk drawer with old batteries and rubber bands. I’ll post some of both kinds here because it’s fun to look back and see what was and what could have been.

Me & You

This a song that came out in one piece, fully formed from that major 7th chord voicing I play in the intro. There’s a specific time in early December every year that I’m struck by this sweet, reflective melancholy and I have the urge to listen to John Coltrane’s version of My Favorite Things, Vince Guaraldi and Bill Evans. This song tries to scratch that itch for me, to capture that bittersweet longing. The version you’re hearing was recorded late the other night in one take. I tracked in stereo with two mics to try to capture what it would feel like if you were sitting across from me in my little office studio.
