Feed the Machine

MJWB and old friend guitar maestro David Brown groove out on an original chamamé inspired tune on board the Lily Pad. Shots of the Annisquam River headed towards historic Gloucester Harbor and the drawbridge from Cape Ann Marina, where Lily is moored.

Blocking the Varnish

This tune is inspired by trains, but I composed it in a variety of airports around the world over the past year. From wiki: Many prestigious passenger train services have been given a specific name, some of which have become famous in literature and fiction. In past years, railroaders often referred to passenger trains as the "varnish," alluding to the bygone days of wooden-bodied coaches with their lustrous exterior finishes and fancy livery. "Blocking the varnish" meant a slow-moving freight train was obstructing a fast passenger train, causing delays. Filmed by Yulene Velásquez.

A nice shot taken during the process.
