Some Tunes for You

Here are some of my tunes for downloading. I will be including some new MP3's soon from the new record as soon as I find the time.

This is an old Tampa Red Tune tune called "You can't get that stuff no more" that I did with some friends I have been playing with in Florida. On this cut we have Barry Johnson on guitar, Peter Orifice' on piano, Mark Potts on drums and Myself on the Steel guitar and vocals.

"Speculating Daddy" is an old tune I resurrected and reconstructed last year in Florida with Barry Johnson on second gutar, and Rick Davidson on bass guitar.

"Savannah Mama" comes from from the last CD "Rattle that thing" I did a while back with Roll and Tumble (Justin Quinn on harp and Curtis Haynes on piano) in Massachusetts. Got to love the sound of that Baritone Tricone National guitar!

"Not long for day" is an old Blind Willie McTell tune that I rearranged a litte. It was the title track for Roll and Tumble's second record, so I decided to try a little different take on it. This is with Barry Johnson and Rick Davidson on Bass.

"Someday baby", despite what some people claim these days, was actually written by Sleepy John Estes a long time ago. He wrote a lot of great tunes that became blues standards. I did a little rearranging of his tune and have Barry, Mark and Peter on this one also.

Guitars I played here are all by National Resophonic guitars in San Luis Obispo. They are a Delphi, a Style O and a Baritone tricone in order of the songs. Savannah Mama features a Style 1 Tricone. Look for some more music coming up as I continue to work on my new solo record, which will also have some Old time clawhammer banjo, six string banjo and Ukulele.

The current CD available now is titled "Down in Blue" and features music from deep Delta blues to Ragtime styles and a handful of original tunes. It features musicians from both Florida and New England including Barry Johnson on second and lead guitar, Bill Koetting on Acoustic Bass, Roger Ebacher on Congas, Scott Shetler on clarinet, Justin Quinn on harp, Joyce Anderson on Fiddle and harmony vocals and Jon Ross on Bass, Mandolin and who is also the producer of this record. Copies can be purchased direct at any Gigs, by emailing this site and will soon be available on CD Baby and itunes, along with local music stores. Price is 15.00.

Update February 2017:

I have recently started work on a new CD which will be recorded and finished in Nashville this May to be released later this year. I have written about five or six new tunes and will showcase them on this CD. It will be leaning heavy in the direction of a solo effort this time, but there will be some tunes featuring other musicians. This one will include more of my clawhamer banjo playing, along with ukulele and Baritone National guitar.. Music will be Originals, Ragtime guitar intrumentals, Old Time music and Traditional Country Blues.
