“Comfortable Shoes” Music and Mix by Brad Hopkins (https://soundcloud.com/bradhopkins) Lyrics and Vocals by Wild Christopher (https://soundcloud.com/wild-christopher-lyrics) Additional Keys by Jerry Lochman (https://soundcloud.com/time2cclear) Organ by Jamie Rhind (https://soundcloud.com/jamie-rhind) We all take some time To settle on in Get comfy in our own skin We try to be cool We try to out shine We like to think this world is mine All mine Well now I’m a little bit older I find it’s all right To just be me And you be you I might not be a rock star Might not ever go too far From this moment with you But no matter how far I travel I’m sliding into my comfortable shoes My comfortable shoes If I’m not a rock star In my comfortable shoes Don’t worry If that’s the truth I won’t sing the blues As long as I can sing to you To you On the front porch Swinging with you Knowing life’s secret truths It’s the little things Laughter and loving Caring and hugging Holding on to you And sliding into my comfortable shoes My comfortable shoes Photo by https://flic.kr/p/L15vhN Written by Chris Barnett for Questionable Enterprises LLC. © 2016

2. Song For My Father - Horace Silver

Song For My Father - Horace Silver

Here's a latin jazz hard bop classic made famous in 1965 by pianist Horace Silver. Horace's music was heavily influenced by the blues, and this tune was further influenced by a trip he took to Brasil. I recorded this all on keyboards, and would like to dedicate this to my father, to whom I owe so much, and who passed away last year. I took this photo from the top of the John Hancock building in Chicago, the city where he made his home and career. Thanks as always for your time listening, your comments and your shares.

4. Taking It Up - with Dan van den Berg / guitar

Taking It Up - with Dan van den Berg / guitar

Dan van den Berg steals the show here on a Miles type modal groove, while breaking a high E string in the process. See if you can find where:) A special tune for us to toast Miles like this. From the late 60s on Miles always had one or two super serious fusion guitar players on stage with him - John McLaughlin, Pete Cosey, Mike Stern, Barry Finnerty, John Scofield, Robin Ford and Foley. He would have dug Dan's wonderful playing. Thanks for you listens, likes, comments and shares. The stunning photo was taken by our son Cameron at Machu Pichu, Peru Check out Dan's extraordinary playing at https://soundcloud.com/danarchx And here's a playlist of the 20+ tunes that Dan and I have recorded together. Wonderful music:) https://soundcloud.com/jamie-rhind/sets/dazzling-em-dan-van-den-berg

5. Together - 23 musicians. 12 countries. 1 stage

Together  -  23 musicians.  12 countries.  1 stage

Together. A remarkable gathering of more than twenty of my favorite SoundCloud musicians. Guitars, keyboards, basses, tenor sax, clarinet and vocals. Together's musicians are serious creative instrumentalists and are inspirations to so many. Many are recording artists. The finest players I know here. So many are simply remarkable. Together represents what SoundCloud is about, and how effectively musicians can work across the world. Musicians who have never ever even spoken with each other, but recognize each other by their sounds and the notes, rhythms and phrases they play. Pretty damn cool. 12 countries are represented here -- Canada, Dubai, England, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Sweden and the US. There are two sections to the piece - a blues piece and a modal fusion section, with soloists across each part, showcasing their distinctive voices. Vocalatti's beautiful singing is woven throughout the piece - her words and voice really pull us together. The wonderful keyboard head during the opening and closing was composed and performed by Calaminus, who also has added the great organ comping you hear throughout. The first and last soloists are brilliant musicians and soloists, as are so many throughout. It's been such a pleasure to pull this together over the past 3 weeks. So sit back and enjoy a true SoundCloud experience. We thank you so much for your time listening, your comments and your shares to followers and social media. And thank you for your exploring and following these wonderful players and voices on their instruments.

8. Busting Out - with Ronny Heimdal / guitar

Busting Out - with Ronny Heimdal / guitar

Created this tune to combine elements of rock and fusion, and was looking to set up soloing similar to what John McLaughlin and Jeff Beck did with Jan Hammer. Norway's superb fusion guitarist, composer and recording artist Ronny Heimdal is featured, and just tears it up. Into pieces. Little pieces. Check out his gallery here on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/ronny-heimdal Hope you enjoy our music. Thanks so much Ronny:)

My Old Friend - with Tom Adams and Mike Orzek guitars

Here's a slow blues created by Tom Adams with an invitation to join. So Mike Land of Orz Orzek and I jumped on it to add some rhythm and solo guitar and organ. Tom has the first and third guitar solos, Mike has the second and I have the organ solo. Fun as always playing with you guys - such fine musicians - and thanks to Tom for including others again in his music. Thanks as always for your generous time listening, for your comments and for your shares.

10. Be Careful With A Fool - with Tom Adams guitar - a Johnny Winter Tribute

Be Careful With A Fool - with Tom Adams  guitar - a Johnny Winter Tribute

If you're into the blues here on SoundCloud you've got to be following San Antonio's Tom Adams https://soundcloud.com/ytlblues . Tom is a master blues player and just loves to interpret so many styles. Truth be told, Tom posted this bad ass Johnny Winter style BB King tune up for a couple of minutes and took it down because he thought it was a bit wild and aggressive - my adjectives here but that's the idea. But I quickly encouraged him to put it back up and he suggested my adding a little organ solo to it - which I jumped on immediately. So here's a little heavy blues - the kind of electric blues that I just love - that reminds me of what I hear in the Chicago blues clubs when the band really wants to get that raw blues sound. It only works with a great guitar player and we sure have one with Tom. Thanks for throwing it back up and allowing me a minute of fun with you once again. Let Tom know we want to hear more of this type of playing:))) He needs encouragement to let his hair down. We thank you always for your time listening, for your comments and for your shares.

11. Take The A Train - Duke Ellington

Take The A Train - Duke Ellington

Thought I'd share a quick take of one of my all time favorite jazz standards - Duke Ellington's A Train. Such a classic and thought it was written for piano and big band, I've decided to go with the Hammond B3 sound. Organ greats like Jimmy Smith and Groove Holmes have inspired the sound. May have Duke shaking in his grave, but hopefully he likes the interpretation. Thanks as always for your listens and for your wonderful comments.

12. What The Funk - with Orlando "The Don" Lund

What The Funk - with Orlando

For those of you who haven't discovered Orlando "The Don" Lund, here's your opportunity. Orlando is a serious pro, having built a career as a writer, multi instrumentalist and producer in London during the '90s Soul Funk era, leading and creating with some of the finest contemporary jazz and funk musicians in Europe. You can hear many of their great tunes here at https://soundcloud.com/orlando-lund. If you are into grooving music, almost no one does it better. Orlando approached me about playing on a tune I had released here, What the Funk, quickly sending 5 tasty tracks to me - a solid grooving bass line, a congas line, two rhythm guitar tracks and a George Benson style guitar solo. I've worked them all in here, adding them to all my keyboard parts, creating some sweet soul jazz for your listening pleasure. Check out Orlando's wonderful Palma Groove Project recordings on his gallery - really special creations. We thank you as always for your generous listening time, for your comments and for your shares.

Daydreamers on the Spanish Highway - Part 3 - Featuring Jamie Rhind

So now Jamie Rhind and myself have made our collaboration into a Trilogy Suite! This is Part 3 of our excursions "on the Spanish Highway". After the heavy thundering "Drag Racers", the eerie "Tumble Weeds", here now is the melancholic acoustic part 3: "Day dreamers". Or Soñadores en la Carretera Española, if that's correct in Spanish... We had great fun again making this romantic version, using the same themes, but taking it to a flamenco jazz fusion remake. We hope you like our part 3!

Don't Know Why: Jamie Rhind & NayJ.

Hello my SC family. Jamie and I have been planning to cover this song for two months. Jamie said, "this will be an all time beauty", and when he sent me a short sample of his progress I had to agree. Jamie told me that this would be a sweet version of Don't Know Why. Then he sent me the finished product, I was "WOWED", and I knew I had better get my game on. I needed to somehow do his work justice. Thank you Martin from Jamie and I for the great production. We hope that you guys will enjoy.

Soul Brothers - with Justin Valente guitar and Johnny Pugh blues harp and horns

Bringing a soulful sound to SoundCloud with this one. Lifetime recording artist, soul vocalist, saxophone and harmonica player Johnny Pugh sits in with blues guitarist extraordinaire Justin Valente and me on an emotional Ray Charles type slow jam. What a wonderful surprise to hear Johnny's beautiful harp lines, which fit perfectly with Justin's raw electric blues energy. Real proud of this one, as it captures the heart and spirit of why we all love SoundCloud. Check out Johnny and Justin's music here - you will love their playing. Thanks for listening.

Cool Times - Paploviante - with Jamie Rhind / keyboards

Zurich's Paul Racle ... aka Paploviante...is always doing something fresh and new. Such a fine bass player, drummer, guitar player, and producer. A deep musican across so many styles too.
