INKHAUS ~ HOLIDAY TREATS ~ DUKE ELLINGTON

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

If I have to hear one more Mannheim Steamroller Christmas song, I’m going to pass out. Seriously.

That’s why I’ve chosen to feature this little gem on our site ~ Duke Ellington’s “Three Suites”: an album containing the Jazz legend’s own treatment of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Grieg’s Peer Gynt & an original, Suite Thursday, based on Steinbeck’s “Sweet Thursday” novella.

Take a listen to Sugar-Rum Cherry, originally known as Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies (does anyone remember the Ren & Stimpy episode with the “Bloody Head Fairy” that was set to this tune? A Classic!). Watch out for Harry Carney’s sultry Tenor Sax solo on this groove that sways like Uncle Leo after too much eggnog. Duke deftly uses his masterful rhythm section of Sam Woodyard & Aaron Bell, on Drums & Bass, respectively, to make In The Hall of the Mountain King swing hotter than a two-dollar pistol, and twice as loud! Do yourself a favor ~ pick up a copy of Three Suites….

INKHAUS EVENT ~ SOUL BEAT BOOTIQUE ~ NYE RESOLUTION

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

“Get up, get into it, and get involved!” ~ James Brown may have made this soul phrase popular, but Inkhaus is taking it to the next level! Not only are we designing the promo material (see below), but we’re performing at the event! Developing our Radiolab & Soul Beat Bootique, respectively, is just one of many ways we’re integrating who we are into what we do. Because effective marketing is about more than flashy design & clever copy! ;)

INKHAUS RADIOLAB ~ FAVATA ~ SIMPLE TROUBLE

Friday, December 5th, 2008

I love the creative process ~ the medium is almost secondary to the actual feeling itself. The idea.

I wrote “Simple Trouble” on Election Night, as the polls were being counted. I kept a web browser open, checking in every 30 minutes or so to see how far ahead Barack Obama had climbed. I finished the 1st draft of the tune as he was beginning his acceptance speech. Usually when I’m composing in Reason, I don’t have any other music or news or anything on. I kind of retreat into my shell and dig around for what is, hopefully, some Inspirato. Because Inspirato cannot be manufactured.

But this was a little different, and I can’t help feeling that maybe I was just a little more hopeful that evening ~ we all have our own ways of documenting important moments in our lives, and writing music is one of mine.

bon appetit!
