Hate to Say I Told You So

This song started as just a fun, smooth jazz number,and guess what, it IS!

When we were working on Player A “Our Own Devices”, much of the thought was, how can we have fun, but make a serious artistic statement as players? So we came up with very artful tunes like the title song “Our Own Devices”, the lead off tune “Sleekness”, and other stuff. But this song just came about as a fun song. Something for the “smooth jazz” set if you will, but will a little more energy than that.


There’s no big story, just slick fun playing by guys who love their instruments.

I told a few folks that Player A would fit into the contemporary jazz marketplace, and our first single, “Coming On” slipped into the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 25 a time or two. So, guess what, we were right.

Hate to say I told you so…

The Deepest Love


It’s a word we throw around a lot in music. But how deep does it go? Is it something we say because the other person said it? Is it something we feel that’s a physical thing? Or does it just make for a great song title?

In our new video for “The Deepest Love”, we try to show a long life of love between two people who meet, fall in love, marry and start a family, then end up back again in love walking through life (and a lot of beach trips apparently!).

The point is, there is no love like the deep love between two people who share a lifetime of love with each other and their family.

Talk About It

We love the beach. The sand, the waves, the laid back, chill time.

When the sun goes down, we chill at a local restaurant. Maybe sip a margarita or cold beer, and watch the sun go down over the ocean.

It’s good day.

The best part is, tomorrow we get to wake up and do it all over again. As long as the vacation lasts, we’ll be digging those toes under the sand all day under an umbrella, and dealing with the sunburn at night.

Enjoy “Talk About it” and dream about some beach time today…
