Album Notes
Take a little Chris Isaak, mix in a handful of Ennio Morricone and add a dash of The Ventures...well, you get the idea...
The initial kernel of this piece was created on the same weekend as Dark Descent, my composition that was used in the season 4 finale of the TV show, The Mentalist. I've continued composing in this style (I call it Neo-Spaghetti-Surf) realizing several other pieces in the interim but this one has been there in waiting till the time was right. It's been a long gestation but now it has come alive and evolved into a piece of music that tells a story.
