Happy Hour in Deadwood
You've heard all these notes before, but not like this! Take an unpredictable expedition thru the musical mind of Stephen King. It won't take long for you to appreciate Steve's remarkable ability to orchestrate any ensemble. What is not so obvious, but even more notable, is Steve's ability to perform all the necessary parts to perfection. Piano, guitar, bass, it's all Steve. Tuba, flute, strings, once again Steve's skillful performances will entertain and amuse you. All of Steve's up-tempo compositions are built on the primal beats and funky rhythms of drummer, percussionist, and most excellent friend, Lou Trombley. This trip is laced with Stephen's up-lifting melodies, distinctive arrangements and excellent playing. So, if you're looking for some good-old-fashioned, kind-a-modern, instrumental, be-bop, country, rock 'n' droll, buy this album. Very Special thanks to... Jeremy W. Pierce for his inspiration on "Doctor's Bag", Wim Koopman at HornForHire.com for the very cool saxophone solo on "Doctor's Bag", and Larry Preston for the nasty guitar work at the very end of "The Demo Man". ___________________________________________________________ Steve came by his music through no fault of his own... it's been crammed into his ears since birth. Mom was musical, all three brothers are musical, but Cab, his dad, was the Maestro. After Berklee Steve continued playing, writing, arranging, recording and teaching and he's still at it! Steve lives in southern New Hampshire with his wife, not far from their daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter, who at this writing is almost three!
