I've had the good fortune of traveling and playing music in Denmark over the last few years. I've been connected with Sinne Eeg, a remarkable vocalist who lives in Copenhagen. She's put together wonderful tours that took us all over Denmark and even down south to the Canary Islands. It was on a day off that I came up with a new tune that set out to capture the moody atmospheric morning of the Copenhagen experience.

 

In 2020, the pandemic hit and it was time to write some new songs and revisit some unrecorded gems. We set up a quarantined and socially distanced song recording factory at SpragueLand and jumped into documenting the music. What a fun time having long, uninterrupted days to tinker with the details. The boys loved the empty freeway driving to and from the studio and aside from the many bad things about the virus, we found some solace staying creative with music.

 

Copenhagen Mist is a collection of new compositions, all instrumentals, played by Tripp on sax and flute, Mack on bass, Duncan on drums, and me on guitar. Percussionist Tommy Aros joins in on a few tunes. 

 

Thanks for listening…

Sequoia

You guessed it, I wrote this tune on a family vacation hanging out with the gigantic trees up at the Sequoia National Forest.

 

Boppy Cartoon

This ascending melody came to me in my car. Traffic jams are cool for something!

 

Copenhagen Mist

I wrote this song on a moody day in Copenhagen. Pastel colors, muted sun, good city.

 

Onions

Tripp and I hated onions in food when we were kids. We both can put up with them now.  

 

Sentimentally Me

I wrote the music to this tune and my friend “Nado” Pete wrote the lyrics. For this version we play it as an instrumental. Kind of "Great American Songbook" – ish. 

 

Kornel Blues

This is a minor blues composition that was inspired by composer and trumpeter Kornel Fekete-Kovacs. He’s Hungarian and he’s a fantastic muso!

 

Cidade Praiana

This samba reminds me of a peppy little beach town in Brazil.
