info about these extra tracks
During the making of Blue Bolero, the entire album took on a
slightly dark and sometimes intense vibe, something that I have not
indulged myself in on my previous records. I also had an idea to do
a project of chill-out bossa nova, more fun style tracks, at the same
time. I was even thinking about doing a series of compilation Cds called
Ultimate Vibe vol 1, 2 etc etc.
So these two tracks were composed during this time and were intended
to be a part of the chill-out compilation (which still may or may not
happen). The style of these tracks was just a little too far away from
the overall concept of Blue Bolero so I thought that they shouldn't
go on the album, although I think they are both fun tracks (my 3 year
old niece just loves them!...hmmm, what does that tell me I wonder).
Anyway, enjoy them. You might need to drink a martini and have some
friends over to create the proper atmosphere. :)
