Someting new in my set! Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

What's new in your set list? Anything new that you have added to your show? Perhaps a new moment! I am taking this moment on tour with me in Europe. I'm leaving in about a week.

Thanks to my new Carvin endorsement both of my guitars have synth access capabilities. This means they both can control a Roland Guitar Synthesizer. Because they both have built in on-board access from the bridge pickup I do not need to connect (tape on) Rolands pickup. And let me say that Synth Guitars have come a long way... I can change patches right from my guitar.

See the second video on my IH page or go here!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzGTbrcs6I0

For my synth sounds I'm using the Roland GR-55. But I could also talk to Mac if I wanted too. Really any USB or MIDI keyboard will work. The GR-55 has a basic looper in it as well. Here is a short clip of something I adding to my set. The Idea is to build the track right before the audience. Guitar players like Phil Keaggy have been doing this on more traditional acoustic guitars for years. I'm trying to bring a new twist to the idea.


I used a Fishman LOUDBOX MINI as my amplifier. I'm running my natural guitar tone straight in bypassing the Roland GR-55. I'm running the synth portion through the back of the amp where an iPod could get connected. But the GR-55 has a USB stick that can run my tracks and allow me to control it all with my feet. So I'm sending two cables from my guitar. The natural tone to the front of the amp with a touch of reverb and the synth to a PA style input in back of the amp. In this video it's mono. In a stage setting with more inputs I would run the Roland through the PA in stereo. The LOUDBOX has a direct out that I can send to separate channel. I could just use the synth cable and do it all but I noticed my natural tone is really "phat" using a gold tipped cable. This is still a work in progress and I will be fun to see where it goes down the line.

Iron Sarpens Iron - This is a new feature of my newsletter and blog where I pay homage to musical friends and mentors.. Check out Proverbs 27:17

RWG (Richard Walton Group):



The founder, leader and bass player of this group is Richard Walton. Richard plays acoustic guitar and sings as well. For those of you who don't know, this was the first professional jazz band I ever played in. I remember my Dad liked it when I joined this group. I owe a lot to the Richard Walton Group; they really helped shape my music career. One thing I liked about this band was that they did so many different styles, most of them jazz though. Pop vocal tunes were in the set as well. This streched me as a player. I first met Richard in '93 when I was in college. I got his business card from a sax player. I contacted Richard and he invited me to play on a gig that his regular lead guitar player could not do. At the first rehearsal, I met Eric Robertson, the band's new drummer and rhythm guitarist David Meer. We all clicked right away. A few years later, Richard contacted me again when he had a tune he wanted me to play guitar on. The album was called, Where Time Stood Still. Richard then asked me to join the band. They even took an idea I had and it became the first of many tunes we would write together. We named that tune, "Strollin.'"

I have many fond memories of playing in RWG. One that stands out was when we played on a parade float. We sent our sax player off the float and into the crowd. The mission was to hand out cards. Oops... he almost got left behind... lol We were moving at a good clip. I spent 10 good years in this band and played on several CD's. Richard and I were quite a writting force. Check Richard Walton out here. http://notlaw.com/pages/

Buddy Jordan bass: 





When I first met Buddy Jordan he was working for Guitar Center. Buddy was part of the Pro-Audio Department. At the time I don't think I knew he was a bass player. But, I had a good friend from church that would always say, "talk to Buddy when you need gear." A few years later I discovered that Buddy was in fact also a great bass player. We jammed together in the local club and he soon made it in my phone book! One fond memory I have is this time when I had Buddy on one of my gigs. The club was called Bliss. We played my tune, "Astro," and he did this amazing bass solo in the center. It was that show I also remember sitting in his car and hearing what would be the premixes of his new CD, Did Somebody Say Bass? This is a very nice CD. I also remember having a great time playing on a cruise out of Baltimore with his band, Beyond Blue. Be sure and get your copy of Buddy's CD here! http://www.buddyjordan.com

Rodney Kelly Guitar:



Other than Nick Colionne Rodney Kelly is one of the sharpest dressed jazz guitar players. I'm talking suit, hat. and the works. When you see him he almost always has an arch-top in his hand. That would be a big jazz box with f-holes. I first met Rodney Kelly at the Monday night jam session at Club 347 in Baltimore. You will hear me mention this quite a bit in this new feature of my newsletter. It wasn't long before we became friends exchanging licks and talking about our guitars / toys! Rodney also has a very talented son who plays keys. One fond memory I have is when Rodney invited me to play at Lexington Market with his band, the Rodney Kelly Experience. This was a Friday lunchtime gig. Of course we did a few George Benson numbers together! Rodney is a fine guitar player and working in his debut solo CD. Check him out here! http://www.rodneykelleymus​ ic.com/

Thanks for reading. Have a great August!

Spin Cycle will be here Feb 1. I am very excited about this new record. It's gone to final mastering right now. As soon as I have some mixes to share I'll be loading them up. Another thing that set's this record apart is that I recorded most of it with a GlassTones guitar. I used a special prototype guitar where the strings touch nothing but glass. It's sound is so crystal clear and full. I can't wait for you to hear it. Stay cool, Drew.

I am really looking forward to performing at the Seabreeze Jazz Festival this year. The festival is April 16, 17, and 18. On Friday Night there is a jam session in memory of Wayman Tisdale. This was the last stage Wayman performed on before he died of cancer. Here is more info on his life.

Wayman Lawrence Tisdale (June 9, 1964 May 15, 2009) was an American professional basketball player in the NBA and a smooth jazz bass guitarist. ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayman_Tisdale

In the words of a great friend and Country singer Toby Keith, "So, play it sweet in Heaven cause I know that right where you want to be... I'm not crying cause I miss you... I'm crying for me." Toby wrote a great song. Dave Koz hlped as well with some beautiful ax work. I'm an toughed when I see this.

DREW DAVIDSEN REVIEW

The title of Drew Davidsen's 2007 independently released solo debut This Journey has proven joyfully prophetic. Since releasing the fresh and dynamic, perfectly "in the pocket" set of 12 melodic and coolly grooving originals, the multi-talented composer/guitarist-a longtime session player who has appeared on close to 30 high profile projects--has enjoyed a unique career whirlwind, earning accolades across the board in the worlds of urban jazz and gospel and being named one of the "Ten Hottest New Guitarists" in Guitar Player Magazine's influential reader's poll. An institution at Delaware's Reheboth Beach Jazz Festival for the past eight years, Drew at the 2007 event was invited by jam session host Gerald Veasley to join a superstar contemporary jazz jam session featuring Eric Darius, Steve Oliver, Jason Miles, Bobby Lyle and Nick Colionne. In 2008, he won the Newsome Award for Best Gospel Jazz CD, was inducted into the Newsome Awards Hall of Fame and won the Momentum Award for Jazz Artist of the Year by IndieHeaven. This year, he's been nominated for two Momentum Awards, "Jazz Instrumental Artist" and "Jazz Artist of the Year.

Fans of Colionne and superstar urban jazz guitarist Norman Brown's blend of high energy melodic funk, crisp electric improvisations and laid back sensual soul will find an immediate emotional connection as they take This Journey. Davidsen kicks off the set with the colorful mid-tempo seduction of "Take it To The Maxx," then doubles his axe with the sax for the similarly sensual vibe of "Full Circle." He follows the instantly hummable, soaring and anthemic title track with the bubbly grooves and crisp melody lines of "Flip Side" before going retro, rolling his sharp melody over thumping old school beats on "Straight Up." Switching over the acoustic, Davidsen waxes dreamy and eloquent on the appropriately titled "Nylon Rain," then keeps the chill mode going with the passionate sax-guitar melody line and provocative electronic atmospheres of "Introspective." Those atmospheres blend with elegant piano, punchy sax coloring and crisp, laid back guitar and hypnotic, shuffling beats on "The Long Way Home."

"2 After 12" is perhaps the hippest track on This Journey, a delightfully bouncy, electronica-infused retro soul and blues jam that seduces and hypnotizes at the same time. The guitarist taps into an Irish music and inspirational vibe on the lovely, swaying "Vision Quest (Be Thou My Vision)," which he follows by the easy simmering, blues-jazz meditation of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing"-which adds panache and soul to a standard whose legacy includes renowned versions by Sting, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Not to toot his own horn, but Davidsen gets the title right on the closing track "Amazing," an extraordinary, most rousing, danceable jazz-funk twist on "Amazing Grace" that makes you glad God found you all over again!

While currently enjoying a re-release of This Journey-which is not only worth a second look, but is truly one of the most compelling indie urban jazz discs of the past few years--Davidsen also just released online a few preview tracks for this next project produced by Eric Copeland, Creative Soul Jazz: the high energy, feel good, top down, sun in your face travel tune "Astro" and the moody and contemplative, easy grooving, electronic-tinged "Bounce." For Davidsen, currently a resident of Towson, Maryland, the exciting journey continues!

My trip to Franklin, TN. was amazing to say the least. God provided the whole way. Eric Copeland's studio is very nice. We had a great time talking jazz, etc... So........ I am planning to to go back in August for a photo shoot. I need to make some changes.

Eric challenged me to loose 10 lbs. by August. This is a must! So far I have been three days with out any soda. Smile I have been watching what I eat and drinking a lot of water.

Next will be my hair. I have been growing it out for some time. I do get the ends cut now and again. It just that I need style. I need to scream smooth jazz.

I have also been working like a dog in my studio to prepare logic files of my new songs to send to Eric for the next CD. I am writing some new tunes also. Today I was working on a tune called, "Island Blues." Since my return to "HUNVILLE" (all Baltimore people can laugh now!) i have three files ready for the next CD. There is still a lot to be done. I am mostly mapping out how they go. I am doing some guitar work too. Eric and I both use Logic and this will help us make our deadline for releasing my next CD on Creative Soul Jazz.

There will be a few tunes that we use a live band on. I am sure Garry Lunn will play some more bass on the record. He did an awesome job on "Bounce." Garry writes for Christian musician magazine too.

I met most of Eric's team. Mark Baldwin came in the studio on Tuesday. This dude rocks on the guitar. cool

Eric and I talked about my career too. I have some homework to do. Once the CD is done I will start to look for endorsements. (Major Guitar Companies, etc...) Actually I am looking now to get ahead of the game.

This is going to be hard work! BRING IT ON!

I am going to be blogging about this whole experience on my IH page. Check there for new updates. I an few minutes I will stand on the scale! I plan to post as the pounds melt away.
