Sound of Metropolis

The compilation of these songs are the result of my impressions during my trips around the world. The music is inspired by famous artists who have lived in some cities I visited, but also, my own, very emotional moments I got there. The song, „Paris City Walk“, is a tribute to the great flute player, Herbie Mann. „Dark City“ is a composition under the impression of the Cool Jazz-Time – Miles Davis, with his song, „Blue in Green“, served it as a great source of inspiration. The song, „Istanbul“, has he same direction. The main theme of „Serenity in San Francisco“ reminds the West Coast Jazz, influenced by Wes Montgomery. The sounds of, „Back to Toronto“, reminds John Scofield, the guitar-playing turns pretty much into the direction of Jimmy Hendrix – the track, „Little Seahawk“ also sounds like the famous guitarist of the 60s. „Pursuit in London“ and „Berlin Power“ are two examples of film soundtracks.
