New Instrumental "A Monk's Journey"

 

'Never My Love' - was originally recorded in 1968 by the band "The Association".  The harmony love-song was an instant hit. It was the 2nd most played song on radio and TV in the 20th century.

"Wow!  Amazing rendition!"  Shane

"This is a beautiful song." - Sharma

"I remember my Dad playing this in the car.  He would have loved this

song.  Great job, Todd." - Christine Williams W.V.

"Nice organ playing on this track.  Don't get to hear you play that instrument often.  Moog?  How did you get that sound?  I play piano. Would you recommend a Roland or a Yamaha keyboard?" - Mick

"Never My Love was one of my wedding songs.  Such good memories come back when I hear this.  Very nice job..." - Freedomsara89

"OMG.  Vocals made me melt." - Gina

Awe in Music - Composed by T.N.

Performed by T.N.

About this song:

"It isn't often that I mix 'old and the new' together.

Sometimes, the fuzz of an electric guitar sucks up all of the cool

empty spaces in a song. 

I wanted to orchestrate something sweeping and classical and then risk adding the heavy electric guitar on top of it. 

This composition was meant to be played with very few notes.  No 'showing off' on the Fender Strat here; just free-style soloing behind the strings and melody.

This recording took me about four hours to make on a Sunday afternoon.

It is comprised of about twelve digital tracks.  Since it was a sparse melody, it took about twenty minutes to mix and master.  No compression was applied.

Moon Wolf - Recorded February 19, 2018

About this song:

"I recorded this in the moonlight on a bright, Monday night.  I used a black Takamine left-handed electric/acoustic guitar, panned out (on three tracks).  I recorded the three guitar tracks in one take.  It was an experiment in 'free-flowing' guitar playing from the heart, mistakes and all.  No compression was added."

T.N.

"If" is a new cover of classic love song by the group Bread, originally written in 1971.  Vocal, acoustic guitars, bass and strings performed by Todd Norcross.  Recorded in three hours in the studio of T.N. on February 4th, 2018.
