Side Streets

H ola Friends of Sound!

Thanks to all of you for tuning in with our live shows over the weekend. It’s a good time traversing the sound waves with friends and we’re looking forward to more of those moments coming up. We’ve got a few private concerts in the next two weeks but I see on 9/26 we’ll be at the RB Library for some more live music. Maybe see you there…

La Jolla house concert with (left to right) Danny Green, Mack Leighton, and Peter.

In the early days of the pandemic we all coasted for a while. When it finally became apparent that this was going to last a lot longer than we originally thought we needed some way to keep the music going. As you know, we launched into creating the Live(ish) From SpragueLand livestream concerts. But before we got that off the ground we first had weekly recording sessions over here at my isolated (and covid free for the most part) SpragueLand Studio. It was Tripp, Duncan, Mack and me and I’d bring in 3 or 4 new songs and we’d rehearse a little and then record them. 

Fast forward, past all the mask wearing and hand washing, I’ve mixed and completed the songs and they are now finding their way out to the great abyss of the music business. Wish them luck!

Today my album Side Streets is available on my website as well as on all of the streaming portals.

For this week’s Coltrane single vid we bring you “Naima.” It’s one of John’s premier compositions. He wrote this song for his wife and it’s a gentle ballad with cool pedal point chord changes. For our version I let a little “Dolphin Dance” influence seep in.
