NextSteps Series Solo Project – Stage 3

Based on the output of Stage 3 of the NextSteps Series Solo Projects, I have added a selection of MP3 tracks with reference to CD albums 32, 33 and 34. These are samplers or “The Best Of” CD’s and the 45 tracks recorded provide a great listeners opportunity to grasp the musical idea’s behind the NextSteps Series Solo Project.

All compositions below are real time pre-mixed ‘live’ studio recordings. No overdubs, no post-mixing, no digital editing of any kind. All tracks are recorded simultaneously: WYHIHIBEP (“What you hear is how it’s been played“). 

All sounds are produced through one central MIDI key board, the magnificent Roland RD700, augmented with various expansion boards and an additional external rythm processor, the BOSS DR-3. Although some instruments may appear acoustic, alle sounds are digital in nature.

Bonus audio tracks:

When you’re messing around in the studio there will always be ‘leftovers’; stuff you have been working on but didn’t quite finish the way you wanted, stuff that is too long, stuff that isn’t just good enough (yet), stuff that never left the ‘concept phase’ and so on. You can find five examples below and some of them are still interesting to pick up again (Straight Bananas and Camillo for example) so who knows, there’s always something to look out for…

01 All Blues (‘cut back’ version) (M.Davis / B. Flos) 6:40 [OTR/+]
02 Straight Bananas (‘rehearsal’ version) (B.Flos) 5:07 [OTR]
03 Jungle Fever (extended version) (B.Flos) 16:39 [OTR]
04 Camillo (‘rehearsal’ version) (B.Flos) 6:11 [MTR/-]
05 Pack Blues (surplus material) (B.Flos) 3:13 [OTR]
