New projects from Andrew Hennessey in 2017

new CD in 2017 - Electric Tartan

I know - I know -  kids can do this on their iPhone between gaming sessions.
Kids today can burp into their iPhones, modulate and arpeggiate the sounds on some magical APP, add some beat to it, tweek distort and delay it with a range of effects I could only hae dreamed of in my youth and then instantly sell the products to some record label - but there is actually some skill in producing lounge music.
The choice of dynamic backing, the mix and levels of it - the choice of lead solo playing and its feel and sensitivity.
I have an opportunity to improvise in a style that I call jazzmetaz - which you can hear more of at:

I had two friends in Kirkcaldy, both long departed alas, who recognised the genre of electric and acoustic combinations - true it's not everybody's cup of tea, but then - what is ??

So here is Electric Tartan - overdue from myself - this stuff has been sitting about in folders etc not mastered or chopped for a long while - but not forgotten !!
