"Suave Standpipe"

Instruments: Bass, Accordion, Drums, EP, Guitar, Horns, Organ, Synth, Sax, Vibes

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed

You know what's cool? A standpipe in the winter. I imagine this one with a hip mustache and a plaid beret. Enough of the imagery, this is a little downtempo chill piece with lush horn punctuation. Suitable for: walks in the rain, time-lapse videos, sad cooking shows. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"The Show Must Be Go"

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Diddley Bow, Clarinet, Trumpet, Vibraphone, Horns, Kit, Percussion

Feel: Bouncy, Humorous

Sort of inspired by the 1930s, and sort of inspired by all-out weird. Definitely recommend taking a listen to this piece. Make sure you get to the 1 minute mark... fun times trumpet playing await! I personally enjoy how the clarinet play tries to follow the trumpet player - doesn't work out so well. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Upbeat Forever"

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Drums, Horns

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

Ska! Ska! Ska! At least, I hope it gives that impression. Works pretty well for a lively background to most anything! This was written for an improv comedy group... so they would have something reasonable to sing to - if an audience member suggests it. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Funky Chunk"

Instruments: Bass, EP, Drums, Guitar, Synth, Horns

Feel: Bright, Grooving, Uplifting

Get down with the 'get down'! A very clean sort of funk thing. Appropriate for a widevariety of exciting sorts of things, including funky dance parties, car washing (dance parties), barbecuing (dance parties), and colonoscopy (dance parties). You can download the uncompressed version here!

"Carnivale Intrigue"

Instruments: Percussion, Bass, Organ, Horns

Feel: Grooving

Is it a samba? Probably. It also depends on how broadly you define a samba. Percussion comes in heavy later in the piece with a pile of street drummers for a thicker feel. I'm having a hard time describing the exact groove of this piece. "Slightly whiter than average samba"? You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Intense

Dark and broody, this one starts thin, gets really muddy, and then releases to a faster clearer section. Where would I use this? No idea. I'm sure you'll think of something, though!

Orchestral hybrid piece in 7/8 time. This one starts slow and bold, and ramps into fast and furious with an unrelenting melody.
