Bassada – I wrote this in college – it was originally a bassa nova, then arranged in more of a fusion style. This take is from a live show in the early 2000s…one of the best versions ever recorded. Players are: Me, Ricky Blues (guitar), Rick Donato (drums), Dan Pacione (bass).[audio:http://blog.johnpackes.com/wp-content/audio/01 Bassada.mp3]
Mystical – A mellow, downtempo but quasi-heavy instrumental song I wrote around 2004. One of my personal favorites.[audio:http://blog.johnpackes.com/wp-content/audio/Mystical09JPedit.mp3]
The Pretzel Song – A favorite of everyone who’s heard it, the infamous Pretzel Song for your amusement.[audio:http://blog.johnpackes.com/wp-content/audio/ThePretzelSong.mp3]
