2015 02February Mix

This mix has a different feel from any other I’ve made. I think of it as a more sensual, modern R&B mix, although some other styles work their way in there. And I don’t think I’ve ever included so many women’s voices in one of these – the songs on my iTunes are overwhelmingly by male artists. But this one is about evenly split between male and female artists and singers.

Since a lot of my ‘repertoire’ comes from the blues and blues-based rock, I’m glad I was able to break out of my comfort zone and make something different that I still like a lot.

It took a lot of tries before this one came together. The final piece was the Bobby Womack song, which I included for a weird reason: I heard a song in a bar and was sure it was “The Bravest Man in the Universe.” It wasn’t, but once I had the song in mind I realized it would fit perfectly into this mix. I experimented some more and removed a few songs and this finally fit together.

I’m very satisfied with this thing precisely because it was tough to make and forced me to approach the songs in a different way. That’s one of the great things about music: it can challenge us and push us to new places. So listen and enjoy!
