Making final songs choices for a six song EP. - Working title: "Rivers and Trains' or (INTERMISSION) - more unplugged.. I've fallen in love with guitar and I've been writing with that instrument in mind. I want to take an acoustic, stripped down direction with organic production that focuses on the lyric
I'm also looking at How Love Works; Part 2 and Race Street Jazz: Volume 2. I've got the songs written for the next round of 'How Love Works..' -I'll just have to find the money.. I have several notebooks of lyrics with the 'feel' of old standards that were written with Volume 2 of Race Street Jazz in mind, but I really want that to be more of a co-writing project.. we'll see how that pot brews..
-I've got a big, fat notebook full of what I'm calling 'political funk' songs. it's a bit rough to be an American right now for a majority of Americans. As a native of New Orleans, I default to funk with a groove when I have something harsh to say- and when things get dark, my tendency is to address it with humor-. We have too many folks yelling at each other these days and not enough folks listening to each other, making an effort to understand how we got here. Sometimes it's better to cross heavy ground with a light touch.. I also have few hammers in there., just in case..
