Something to smooth the senses…Let this little beauty wash over you and wherever you may be, fill this moment with a little bit of Tommy Guerrero. Aptly titled Thoughts of Tomorrow, today’s smouldering instrumental is full of pondering optimism as scatterings of feathered rhythms and heady melodies rise and fall amidst a swell of hypnotic soundwaves! The feel is nicely heavy on the atmospherics…
Californian guitarist and composer Tommy Guerrero has been known to fuse an array of styles into his ever-evolving sound, incorporating rock, hip hop, funk, soul and jazz into his compositions. Today’s song is taken from his 2015 album, Perpetual. Released as a continuation to Perpetuum, an album exclusively released in Japan in 2014, Tommy’s intent for this record was to “to strip the tunes down and create more of an atmosphere than being concerned with writing ‘songs’
The record was recorded on his Tascam 388 1/4″ 8 track tape machine and, by his own admission Tommy Guerrero has explained how, “the idea was to abandon the damn computron and record everything on my Tascam 388 1/4″ 8 track tape machine. The limitations with an old tape deck were welcomed with open arms! I gotta say this is one of my faves and hope people will connect with what I [am] trying to convey. Music is all about an emotional response for me… I hope it resonates with you in a positive way….”
I’ve had no trouble connecting with Thoughts of Tomorrow and love mood it’s shifted me into tonight…Check it out above.
