Monday Music

Today’s piece is a unreleased and unnamed bossa from 1993. It was recorded during the sessions for The Hours Between Night + Day in Santa Barbara, California. I started working on this mix yesterday evening and consider this a rough mix, but I wanted to share it with you. I am not sure I’ll be able to completely finish the mix before we leave on tour, but imagine I will present it to you at the end of May sometime. I have no notes from the sessions, but it sounds like the musicians were:

OL – guitars
Jon Gagan – upright Bass, synthesizer + piano (listen for the unison between upright bass and piano about two thirds into the piece)
Davo Bryant – kick drum + dumbek
Mark Clark – percussion effects
Osamu Kitajima – koto

    An excellent beginning to the day.

    Soothing and very beautiful. Wonderful koto.

    Lovely finish to my workday. The flamenco guitar & koto sound nice together.

    Wonderful! Reminds me of the Sun setting into the night! I would call it “La Notte” or “Insieme a la Notte” that means “The Night” or “Together with the Night” in Italian of course… A beautiful song like this should not be left unnamed. Why don’t you let your ‘Ottmar-Friends’ decide? I’m sure you’ll get many great suggestions!

    Ciao a tutti!

    Sunshine Day! So happy to finish a year long project for work, delivered, and then my ears behold Monday Music! Reminds me of a day at the beach! Thank you!

    It’s hard to believe this didn’t make it onto an album.

    Thank you, I needed that.
