Serious dialog needs to be done concerning all softwares that adopt the iLok protocol. It is outdated and only creates barriers to creativity, production. Thieves will steal regardless. Whose rights are the company's protecting???
A violinist from the Indian Temple and I with a drummer are going to gig using the bass, piano, synth and a few horn tracks possibly for the first jobs. Eyeing Birdland, Dizzy's and The Blue Note who have said I could have an off night or open with CD presented. WIll be living in Brooklyn soon and have guitars and K2500X shipped to start woodshedding to play Avenging Angels and Light Years :)
Ravi, a film maker in NYC, and I are co-writing a 45 minute film. Should be finished by early next years. It is a funny musical along the lines of Monty Python about a serious issue.
After CD 12, I can invision a Night of India tour for a few weeks, A Night of Fusion tour, A Night of Classical Fusion and a Night of the Blues Tour, A Night of Cool Jazz tour and A Night of Pop Rock
I see my focus shifting to business, invention development, humanitarian pursuits, some concerts and like The Grateful Dead all are welcomed to video or record and distribute freely. Life is not about money so much as helping people in whatever way you can. Thanks, Mike
Here will be a return to my first true love, Jazz Fusion, like Corea, Weather Report, Miles, Cobham styles and world musics and time periods. No holds bared Agressive passion hard and soft Gung Fu music, gracefully but powerful in 2015.
It will take a while to get my chops back in this area and have grown, but George Benson kinds of kool, Miles Bitches Brew styles, Charles Mingus from Moves CD, Billy Cobham score, and more maybe late 2014.
CD 8 will be a return to the basics. I started listening to Freddie King, Albert King, BB King, Tiny Grimes, John Lee Hooker, The Allman Brothers, Foghat, and offshoots early one, Oh and Howling Wolf, Rev Gary Davis, Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, and more in the formative years. This CD will be about the blues. A lot I wrote in the mid 80's but will update.
Roots! Strong jazz roots from UM and my fusion love will be in it. This CD will rock from Big Band Fusion to ballads. If you love pop you will love the finished product. These tastes are just the core scores for the musicians in the studio. Saves lots of time and money. 5 songs in a 5 hour session is about right so 10 hours for ten songs and easy mixes. Enjoy, MAR
Guess its a series, many different songs on each Wires CD, CD one is Pop Rock focused, CD 2 is more guitar freak oriented, CD 3 is more Pop Rock mixed fusion/jazz. Thanks!
