Hello everybody,and a Happy New Year to ya--it's a pretty rare thing these days for me to stumble upon a truly original band-in this case,Cinematic Orchestra.The best way to describe their sound is Incognito meets the Brand New Heavies,plus their own thing in there.I'd have sent an MP3 to you guys,but the computer I'm on now really bites.I urge you to seek them out--you won't be sorry.ttylSee More
One of the leading CCM & Westcoast producers & keyboardists of all time.His credits are way too numerous to mention,but let's put it this way..he plays a fender rhodes(and piano) like no one else,and his production values are supreme.See More
Playing keys,collecting Westcoast & Jazz CD's,reading,watching movies(big film noir fan & neo-noir,like The Coen Bros.,David Lynch,Stanley Kubrick,etc.),and cultivating my relationship with the Lord as best I can,one day at a time....oh,and hanging out at the undisputed greatest music site ever--Westcoast/AOR!!
Thank you, Tony. Did you fare through the hockey riot? Glad to make friends with you and yes, it is amazing that there are more European and Japanese fans of Westcoast AOR than Americans? Look for me on Facebook too, if you are on there.
...since you're so fond of.. upploading unreleased version from by Chicago (allegedly from their "18" sessions feat Lamm, Champlin,Scheff and Lamm's officialy released version from his "Life Is Good In My Neighborhood"
Hey Tony, sorry for my bad English as I'm a German native. Thanks a lot for your kind words. This song was an unreleased CHICAGO tune from the '18' era from 1986. This particular version is on the FLY AWAY album....songs of David Foster mostly produced with Swedish musicians and U.S. natives. Since February 2010 I'm a correspondent of a podcast called INSIDE MUSICAST. We are on Facebook and on www.insidemusicast.com
Yo bros.--I've added the tune "More Nights" with killer vocalist Phil Perry--I saw him live with Lee Ritenour almost 20 yrs. ago--believe it or not,it was a free outdoor concert--I didn't even know who was playing--I fluked it,or it was good old predestination--anyhow,to state the obvious,the concert kicked a_s--Phil Perry not only has an incredible range to his voice,but he did not(to my knowledge)hit one bad note,flat or sharp--but it's the soul he's got that really seals the deal.
fyi--This tune was produced and arranged by a guy named Lee Curreri--he played Bruno on the TV series "Fame" way back in the 80's--he hasn't really put out a lot of work since--bit of a mystery.
