SEEKINGBass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
Im an older, very experienced musician that has played in cover bands much of my life (and currently am in a classic rock cover band). I seek NOT to play covers, but to find a few musicians that I can work with to create new music. Simple as that. I would like to play in the area of jazz/blues/funk area and create fun yet meaningful music. A drummer that can play in the pocket and with a great groove and a bass player that can work well in that pocket.
My current music is on apple music, google and spotify. If interested ask. AlfonsePlays dot Com for info

Pretty much everyone and everything, although I do play in a blues/modal type of style. The biggest influences in my musical love have been Jimmy Hendrix to BB King to John McLaughlin to Return to Forever to Stravinsky to Bartok to Weather Report to Miles and Train and back to Muddy Waters to Joni Mitchell. I generally play much in the style of a Gary Moore meets Robin Ford, I can sound essentially exactly like Jimmy Page and Robin Trower and am very good at the Hendrix thing. Then again I love playing latin influenced acoustic music and jazz standards. Where I would like to go is open to most anything creativly interesting.

I Can't Quit you Babe/How many more Times
I Can't Quit you Babe/How many more TimesCover of Led Zepplin's version of How Many More Times and I Can't Quit you Babe. The authors were Willie Dixon (he wrote it for Otis Rush who is know for performing the song). How many more times is credited to Led Zeppelin although it was HEAVILY adapted from a Howling Wolf song. Led Zeppelin "borrowed" much of their blues material. This is from a live recording done in 2009. The original recording had some technical issues (over driven vocal, bass drum sounded awful, bass is pure mud) but I was able to lessen many of those issues. Just a song I always loved.
Blue In Green
Blue In GreenThis is an acoustic guitar cover of the Miles Davis and Bill Evans song from Kind of Blue. This song has been a love of mine, both on Kind of Blue and on numerous Bill Evans recordings.
