ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lyrics? What lyrics? We don't need no stinkin' lyrics! Or so says those rare breed of CD buyers who fetish instrumental music. Well, if you are one of them this might be the CD for you. Pretty much with the exception of me shouting "Madison Clips!" a few times, this CD is relatively free of words and singing in general. It’s a collection of works I created by rhythmically “plooking” on whatever new keyboard happened to be in the studio at the time and then adjusting the pitches, adding harmonies to those pitches, bending the occasional guitar string, juxtaposing the odd sample and thinking up what amounts to various cartoonish ideas for a boring rainy day. There is plenty here to keep your ears occupied. In fact, most of this music was written while waiting around for music clients to turn up at the studio for a session. As you can see - many of them kept me waiting around long enough to develop some interesting ideas. I enjoy writing in this genre and there is a bunch more of it sitting around waiting for me to find the proper budget to record them. Since I've had to operate on practically no budget it's been difficult getting "real" players to help me realize these pieces. More often than not if a piece requires the help of professional musicians it's going to be a song of some sort with singing on it or the audience for it will almost be non-existent. For now, it seems to me that this kind of instrumental music (it’s not jazz, not really classical, not really rock, not quite improvisation) is sleeping with the fishes. I don’t know how many people care about it. And you know what? I don’t care either. I enjoy making it and sharing it with you like minded music lovers. If you enjoy this volume you'll enjoy it's companion Sans Lyrics Volume 2 and probably the CD “Gateways”. Of note, the piece “Flit” got me a small article / showcase in the Discoveries section of Keyboard magazine in January of 1988.

A very odd set by Long Island musician John Tabacco
This is a very odd set by Long Island musician John Tabacco. The Frank Zappa influence is evident here but not in a rip off kind of way. Tabacco has original ideas and takes you to unexpected places while still maintaining cohesive compositions. The mallet writing on Precise Mallet Salad Dancing is charming and the keyboard works are very self assured. Colorful music. Pure music.
