GrooveMaker Series

The Groovemaker Series Consists of a small number of tunes I put together using an iOS app five years ago. The posted tunes are listed below. I have been privileged by having Andy Wigzell (awigze) add his special sax magic to several pieces now and am always delighted with the results.


Summer Nocturne (feat/awigze)



Watchin' Girls Go By


This tune was started in the summer of 2011, along with the others in the series, and somewhere early on I heard the title in the music and it became an earworm. So I started writing lyrics. (Do you know there are less than a dozen rhymes for "gone"? They're all here, I think ;-) However I only ended up with one verse, got discouraged and put it away for later inspiration. Then, as some of you know, I was away from music and MJ for several years but when I returned, there were indications from Andy suggesting he'd like to do it again. I happily sent this oldie (along with a newie) to him and he quickly sent back some absolutely soul-searing additions to both pieces which re-invigorated me to remix and tweak as carefully as I've ever done. As a side note, the file I sent him had my tentative vocals included which he worked around so nicely I left them in. Don't read anything personal in them.

Thanks again brother Andy.

In old Saigon
She was my faun
My light of dawn
With neck like swan
My sweet bonbon
But now she's gone
The light's withdrawn
I can't go on

Thanks Franc
for the visit and the comment. I don't usually have any trouble finding a rhyme, the problem is singing with tongue in cheek ;-)
So glad you enjoyed.

Good one guys. Each contribution is great but the sum is more like the product! Good listening to be found in this one.

but without Andy's contribution this would still be sitting on my hard drive. Glad you enjoyed it Doug, and said so.

Hey Patrick
Thanks for checking this out. I threw my bits together but Andy carefully crafted an exquisite top layer, so I had to go back in and clean up what was underneath. It ended up much better than it started ;-)

I always dig our collaborations. you are so generous in your music that you send to me giving way to my craziness albeit not always totally musical jaunts. thanks again. Definitely a groove maker here as always thru your excellent sense of the genre. thanks Brother Richard!

However it was done, it came out great!
Without Andy's sax, there would be a huge hole to fill, but the groove and production is top notch too. One of these days I gotta check out some of those iPad apps, but I'm still poking around in Logic trying to figure out what it can do. I have the feeling I've only explored maybe 20%.

But Now She's Gone (feat. awigze)
Infectious vibe and sweet sax. A fine combo. When it morphs into syncopated reggae beat I can feel my inadequacies as a dancer come to the fore. Great blends of sounds. Andy is on fire. Nice one. Thanks Brother Richard and Brother Andy.
