Time for One More Song
TakeWest, a recording project that started out in 1997 by Keyboardist/ Producer Brian West, turned into a full powerful music production with vocalists Jami Arrieta, LittleBird, Kenneth Ray West & Jewell Ausbon. Album Description Time For One More Song - An album that bundles genres, influences, and the favorite musicians of keyboardist Brian West. The musicians include drummer Nikkyle Wells, lead guitarist David Brazil, poet Nhan Le, Brad Suppanz on sax, guitarist/ songwriter Littlebird, blues pianist/ singer Jewell Ausbon and his songwriting brother Kenneth Ray West. The styles including Satriani/ Vai - Metal mixed with Techno, Classic Rock, Kitaro like New Age, and a nice touch of Sax & piano on some raw blues, are just some of what you'll hear on this CD. The listener is taken from the introduction piece 'She Whispers', straight into a speedmetal-techno tune called 'Mirai', - Japanese for Future. Next, the listener is brought to a Southern bluesy piano, blues female singer, Jewell Ausbon with the relaxing track 'Tell Me All About It'. Then on to other Moody Blues & Kitaro Influenced songs, plus a hauntingly, beautiful acoustic track from San Francisco Bay artist known as Little Bird. Most of the tracks are from Kenneth Ray West. Highlights are 'Time For One More Song', and 'Forgot About Love'. If you know about Brian West you'd know he normally only plays keyboards and helps in writing parts for other writers, or composing only instrumentals. But on this CD, you'll find his illustration of Nhan Le's poems not only in New Age instrumental music, but also with vocals. 'World's Apart' it's titled, and is a pleasant Pink Floyd tone. The album turned out to be great just by having a wide variety of genres and certainly offers something enjoyable to almost every music lover.
