MP3 Bruce Arnold & Mike
5 MB PHP File - Platform: MP3

Bruce makes good use of the flavor created by of a 1/2 step and minor 3rd via a hexatonic scale in most of the tunes, like Dakota Gumbo, Lock and Key, Multiplicity and Woodpecker Blues, but thereâs a down home twanginess to the overall sound of the CD.

Details:
The guys from Sioux Falls are back with another set of telepathic duets. Their
first effort (Two Guys from South Dakota) was described as "straightahead, uncluttered, and unpretentious; warm, inventive, and above all, solidly swinging" in All About Jazz. The same holds true for this recording where the guys stretch out with a selection of blues based tunes.

In the liner notes for âTwo Guys from South Dakotaâ Bruce wrote:
âOne wouldn't think that the backwaters of South Dakota would be a place for artistic expressionâ¦. But going against the grain were musicians like Mike Miller, and a host of others whose musical level was equal to anyone in the world. I was incredibly lucky to be around these musicians during my formative years, and to hear them playâ¦.Further down the road I connected with Mike during his frequent travels through New York City. Mike was gracious with his limited time and agreed to get together to play in the privacy of my apartment. It was so affirmative for me to connect again with such a wonderful musician; to enjoy his love for making music combined with the humor and wit that have always been part of his playing. There are few things that make me as happy as sitting in a room with another guitar player and just making music. No ego, no agenda -- just a need to interact and make music.â

This kind of basic musical sincerity shines through âDakota Gumbo.â The CD is warmed by the unprocessed sounds of two electric guitars, and an uncommonly sympathetic pairing of musicians.

Bruce makes good use of the flavor created by of a 1/2 step and minor 3rd via a hexatonic scale in most of the tunes, like Dakota Gumbo, Lock and Key, Multiplicity and Woodpecker Blues, but thereâs a down home twanginess to the overall sound of the CD that Bruce says âreminds me of our old jam sessions back home.â

Tracks:
Dakota Gumbo: a down home blues.
Lock and Key: a Texas Blues type of melody with rhythmic hits in the accompaniment.
Multiplicity: a typical uptempo Texas-style blues tune but with modern rhythmic interplay build into the head using triplets against a eighth note melody
Sour: is medium tempo blues with a strong midwest feel.
Woodpecker Blues: a short intro, a written bass line and a melody that tips its hat to the woodpecker theme
