"No Good Layabout"
Instruments: Kit, Bass, Piano, Clarinet
Mid-tempo walking bass, piano, and drums with a clarinet solo in the middle.
Instruments: Percussion, Marimba
African-inspired lazy drum ensemble. Feel change in the middle; Tempo change near the end. Lots of polyrhythms. This piece exhibits some phantom notes athat you hear, but don't really exist. Hard to explain. Batu, Conga, Marimba, Agogo, Cowbell, Clave.
Feel: Driving, Aggressive, Action
Main theme used in two different treatments. Specifically designed to turn your brain around... one sort of gets lost in the fog in the middle, and ends up pointing the wrong way by the end. Starts with a very long slow fade.

"Just As Soon"
Instruments: Bass, Acoustic Guitar, Brushed Kit, EP, Tenor Sax
Feel: Dark, Somber, Calming
Slow 6/8. Did you ever get up in the middle of the night and wonder what would happen if you took a Spanish guitar player, tell them to do a ballad, and give them a tasteful jazz quartet? I did.
