I love this song! I cant hear it and not relax. It soothes my brain like no other song I can think of. There are certain recordings that you hear and know the stars were aligned as it was being created and for Horace Silver’s, “Lonely Woman,” it might have been the stars, the planets […]
If you had a long Monday like me here is a great tune to help you unwind. Miles Davis’ “Blue in Green” Even the title sounds relaxing. The piece is modal with open spacing in the chords. In fact ‘space’ is a great adjective for this piece. The melodies, drums, bass and improv lines all take their time creating a laid back feeling.
If you are unfamiliar make sure you check out the whole album, “Kind of Blue” a true jazz landmark recording!

Had great weekend of gigs! Friday evening at Orfila and a cool wedding on Crystal Pier on Saturday. Orfila is a winery located in San Diego’s North County near the Wild Animal Park…its still hard for us native San Diegans to call it Safari Park. Not exactly sure what is it; the mountains in the […]
This was my first wedding on the pier and it was a really cool venue! Took place between some of the cottages…which BTW I think I will put on my ‘Things in San Diego’ to do list, stay overnight on the pier. So relaxing to hear the waves crashing underneath. I do have to say […]
