about

"The Maze (With David Cousino, Shawn Stanley, & Erik Aylesworth)" was recorded at McCutcheon Music on November 14th, 2011. We recorded the song live with no overdubs. David Cousino played Guitar (2nd solo & chords during the melody & 1st solo), Shawn Stanley played Bass, Eric Aylesworth played Drums, & I (James Murrell) played Guitar (melody, 1st solo, & chords during the 2nd solo). It is the 8th song that I have completed for my new album "Jazz Tent Revival".

"The Maze" was written by jazz pianist Herbie Hancock and was recorded originally on his debut album "Takin' Off" in 1962. It's an eight measure form modal tune in E minor which you would think would make it extreamly easy for a guitar player but that's just an illusion. The tricky part is to solo (improvise) on the chord changes without it sounding like you are just practicing scales. I have always enjoyed playing "The Maze" and any other song written by Herbie Hancock. Herbie is a genius at playing the piano & writting great jazz tunes!

I hope that you will enjoy listening to "The Maze (With David Cousino, Shawn Stanley, & Erik Aylesworth)"!

Peace,
