More of Lou's recent compositions are on display along with originals and standards he recorded or played with 2 of his favorite former employers: Chaka Khan and Herbie Mann. Hear Lou talk about and play music from his time at the iconic Atlantic Records recording studio. He got to know and play for the great producer Arif Mardin while working at Atlantic. Enjoy the set!
This latest episode presents Lou's latest writings in sketch form along with a totally orchestrated master recording. The sketches demonstrate the different grooves and rhythms of these harmonically rich new tunes. Enjoy!
Hear Lou play PART 2 of his JAZZ GUITAR AND BLUESY new songs. A strong tone and a solo-istic approach to the melody statement gives these tunes a new twist and vibrant color. Enjoy!
This episode features melodies and"heads" or lead lines performed with a feeling of playing a solo rather than a rigid statement of the melody.
Lou performs some of his latest compositions with this concept in mind while demonstrating a soulful portrayal of these new songs.
Also included are a few brand new renditions of some of Lou's tunes which were released on previous recordings. Enjoy.
GUITAR VOICES ON ORIGINAL AND CLASSIC COMPOSITIONS are featured in this week's new episode. Hear Lou play solo guitar versions of some standards along with refreshing new takes of previously released and soon to be released renditions of his own tunes and riffs!
Spontaneous renditions of these original and classic songs meet studio/arranged versions showing the different attitudes of these 2 methods of performance. Sometimes the "off the cuff" recordings are more powerful than the thought out, pre-determined ones. Plus, a few new compositions added to the mix. Hope you enjoy!
This new episode continues last week's format with PART 2 of BLUESY-JAZZY Guitar renditions of Lou's latest compositions featuring demos and their Master versions as he introduces excerpts from the soon-to-be released "BEFORE AND AFTER" album on Jazz Guitar Records.
