"My second EP exploring different approaches to improvised ukulele music has two acoustic tracks, two electric tracks and a crazy combination of acoustic ukulele and home organ."
Stephen Godsall



The Tracks :

"Kingdom of the horse" has a Celtic flavour and is a trio between acoustic ukulele, banjo and nylon strung guitar, as is "Forest Fugue".

For "Twilight of the home organ" I imagined a duet of home organ and ukulele, producing a more intimate take on the Hammond/guitar combo of Jimmy Smith and Kenny Burrell. It's a duel between faulty electronics and an acoustic ukulele showing its versatility.

"Electrified" celebrates the fact that Jimi Hendrix first learned to play on a one string ukulele and imagines what might have happened if he'd electrified it; his speaking voice (from broadcast interviews) gives it a talking blues feel. I began with a free improvisation on electric ukulele, then added bass, drums and finally voice samples.

"Misty fusion" is inspired by Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, a slice of fusion in 7/4 time; everything is played on ukulele except for the drums. The ukulele works with a guitar synth module to cover electric piano, trumpet, synth bass and organ voices.
