Fresh Brew Song Titles and description

1. FRESH BREW (G. Farr) The idea of the title came one afternoon hanging out with friends sipping on java juice in one of those 'not so famous' coffee shops. The title of the CD and a great name for a funky jazz tune! This song features Billy Ross on sax and Gary on the keys.
2. JAZZ IN THE HOUSE (G. Farr) The concept of this CD was to incorporate several different rhythms with jazz. Here Gary takes a simple '4 on the floor' feel and turns it around a few times with solo's from John Kricker on trombone, Mitch Farber on guitar and Gary on keys.
3. A LITTLE SUN SHOWER (G. Farr) Gary has supplied the Weather Channel with smooth jazz in the past, so he decided to write a neat little tune with that in mind. Tune in to your local forecast and you might hear one of over 10 songs from Secret Formula artists.
4. TUSCANY WINE (G. Farr) Another artist from Secret Formula Records is featured here, classical flutist
Jeanne Tarrant rips through a melody line with her wonderful virtuoso manner and style. Gary was dining with Jeanne and friends at a northern Italian restaurant with (of course) a bottle of Tuscany wine, got inspired and "furgetaboutit"!
5. YOU LOVE ME (G. Farr) This song originally was recorded as a standard jazz ballad. Gary re-arranged it with a soul R&B feel featuring Secret Formula Records recording artist Ron Fattorusso on sax. The original arrangement can be heard on the "Deep as the Night" CD.
6. SPACE RUN (G. Farr) Cool sounds and voice effects with a hip hop jazz groove. Lunar baby!
7. GRAY EYES (G. Farr) A jazz waltz blues breaks into a swing with hip piano licks by Gary.
8. NORASIAN CLIMATE (G. Farr) This is one of two songs dedicated to Gary's wife Nora. Hip-hop, funk jazz.
9. GARY'S WORLD (G. Farr) This might remind you a little of Mile Davis's Bitches Brew or maybe not, you decide for yourself. Eastern flare featuring Jeanne on flute and Juan Natividad on muted trumpet.
10. WATERED DOWN (G. Farr) Gary had a great time writing this one. It starts with a great groove and half way through breaks into a mean bass and drum funk feel with great piano solo work. Ron Fattorusso on alto solo. Check out the kickin' soprano snare drum and the nasty horns.
11. A LIGHT SPRING RAIN (G. Farr) You can hear some of Gary's classical training coming through with Jeanne on flute, a great 'Coltrane' sax solo by Billy Ross and Ron Fattorusso on Alto doing a solo intro and into the melody. A classic piece from start to finish.
12. DEEP BLUE WATERS (G. Farr) Gary started his professional career working in the Islands with a Reggae band. This is Reggae meets jazz. No problem mon!
13. NEW AGENT (G. Farr) Bond meets jazz and rock. High energy piano and organ solo's with backup horns.
14. UP & UP (G. Farr) Catchy melody with a nice hip-hop feel.
15. LULLABY FOR NORA (G. Farr) A beautiful orchestral and piano arrangement love song dedicated to Nora.
16. POUR IT ON (G. Farr & M. Farber) This was originally written for ESPN TV. Gary liked the way it came out so much that he added a bridge breakdown. This was a last minute bonus track add on.
