Ep 39: Einoe! – New Original Tune

by | Sep 6, 2023 | Podcast | 0 comments

Einoe! is a new tune that I just finished recently. It was first inspired by Art Lande. Art is one of my music heroes whom I had the pleasure of interviewing for this podcast. He was in Asheville a few months ago, and I got to spend the day with him talking about music and hearing him play a gig. He shared some of his compositions with me and talked about how he writes and how thinks about playing. Very inspiring!

Then, the title comes from “I know!”, a real Southern woman thing. It became a kind of running joke with Kristen as we were getting ready for some upcoming performances. So, this tune is for Art and Kristen, and all the genuine Southern women out there! “I know!”.

Harmonically, this tune is based around a certain chord voicing that moves around all over the place, and occurs over different bass notes. There’s no real key center. Then there are a few figures that are used in different permutations. Three written sections with a set of blowing changes that hopefully reflect the spirit of the tune. It was fun to write and I look forward to playing it with the guys!

This is kind of a rough demo recording of it. Let me know what you think!
