LOST Song Titles and description

1. Lost (G. Farr) The beginning of the musical journey sets up with spacey sound effects and breaks into a funk feel and a vehicle for the musicians to solo starting with Gary on keys, Ron Fattorusso on sax, Juan Natividad on trumpet and a ripping solo by Mitch Farber on guitar.
2. All For The Love (G. Farr) Gary actually wrote this song with the idea of it being an alternative to all those Kenny G. hits. "If he can do it, so can we!" This song features Ron on soprano sax. Gary actually wrote a poem that was to go into the middle section of the song. He asked friend and jazz vocalist Dana Paul to record it for him. After the final mix, the band elected not to keep the poem, felt it didn't flow with the rest of the CD. But you still hear Dana along with Mitch singing background vocals at the end. The mix with the poem is still floating around somewhere and Gary hasn't forgotten about it. 3. One Warm Night (G. Farr) This song was inspired from all those warm nights in Florida. The band originally recorded it as a bossa nova (Jobim style) song. Drummer Craig Pichanick started laying down this trip-hop feel, the band followed and thus was born a new version of One Warm Night. This was a one taker. This is one of two songs that have been aired on the Weather Channel to date.
4. Let Me Be The One (G. Farr/ D. Farr) This is one of 2 vocal songs featuring singer and co-writer Samantha Farr. The lyrics are warm, sensual and spiritual.
5. Keys to the Flat (G. Farr) Funky, fun and another ripping guitar solo from Mitch. Gary wrote this song as a fun vehicle for the musicians. Gary programmed the bass so Juan could play his 'Miles' style muted trumpet.
6. Pebbles On the Beach (G. Farr) This song was first conceived when Gary was playing piano at a beach cocktail party. He envisioned a couple in love and walking on the beach. He remembered his tune, took it home and finished it off. This is one of two songs that have been aired on the Weather Channel to date.
7. An Angel On Earth (G. Farr) Gary originally wrote this piece for solo piano and recorded it on the New Age CD, The Gentle Awakening. The song became so popular to his fans that he re-arranged it for the band featuring Ron on soprano sax. This song is dedicated to all those guys you have found their Angel here on Earth. Some of us do meet them.
8. Song For Krysta (M. Farber) Here is a wonderful song written by guitarist Mitch Farber dedicated to his daughter Krysta. Masterful musicianship and writing. The band interweaves beautifully within each other.
9. Speak To Me of Love (G. Farr / D. Farr) The second vocal tune featuring Samantha Farr stretching her vocal abilities. This song was originally written by Gary as an instrumental piece. Samantha added lyrics to fit the tricky and fast moving melody. A modern version of something you might hear from Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth.
10. So, Let the Wind Blow (G. Farr) Here the CD starts to get more progressive, cool and collected. Tasteful solo's from the horns and masterful guitar once again. Gary has fun playing keyboard acoustic bass interweaving rhythms with drummer Craig Pichanick.
11. I'm In Tune to You (G. Farr) This song takes you through a journey all on it's own with great writing, masterful solos and several different time signatures. A little Chick Corea concept?
12. Aerie Suite #6 (G. Farr) Inspired by a trip to Vancouver Island, Gary found a wonderful Inn on top of a mountain over looking the Vancouver Islands and deep blue waters. The Aerie Hotel has since become famous to world travelers. Gary actually wrote thirteen suites, one for each room, recorded it on piano and keyboards, sent it to the hotel owners to which they were delighted. This piece was re-vamped for the band and a chorus was added using a choir of overlapping voices from Mitch and Samantha.
13. Twisted Funk (G. Farr) This piece was written by Gary as a vehicle not only for the solo instruments but room for drummer Craig to trade fours with the band. At the end of the song, the beginning sound effects from the first track 'Lost' kicks back in, in reverse, thus taking you back to were you started. This is were it gets really freaky if you have a automatic CD player that repeats itself back to track one.
