What’s Up With Joshua Eli Kranz, L.A. Composer/Performer? It felt pretty nice to experience a remarkable day!


DSC_0757croppedToday felt pretty remarkable.  I laid down 6 songs in the recording studio in under 2 hours.  I felt prepared and because of that, being creative came easy and it sounded creative, too.  I started the session with the re-recording of Will You Love Me Tomorrow.  I made my previous recording of that song better so listen to it again. Tell me what you think. Next came Not An Ending After All that I wrote with my brother a while back before he left on a vacation to Busan, South Korea. It is all about beginnings not endings. That song just screams: put me on this recording. Then there is the very warm-feeling song, There Was No One I Would Rather Travel With But You.  Moving forward, I recorded I Don’t Think I’ll Look At It The Same Way Again.  It doesn’t sound like a happy song from the title, but it is,  and ends with some happy sounds which fit with the mood.  Next I recorded a song all about sounds, There Are Sounds All Around. It moves very fast. I kept up and had fun performing it for the recording session. It came out great.  It was a very quick write, too. Finally for this session, I recorded the Mercer standard, That Old Black Magic. In that song I was able to focus on what makes me a jazz performer and instrumentalist in all ways.  The track is 7 minutes+ and has a lot to offer.  I am proud of it… really I’m proud of all of the work I did today. The session was very productive.  The engineer I use always does a good job to make a session easy and this session was just that way once again. My working producers were there to help it all along and do the videoing.  In a couple of weeks the music should be up in all places so you can listen.  I am appreciative of your support of my music and look forward to hearing what you think.  You can listen to my music at joshuaelimusic.com and on soundcloud.com on my Joshua Eli Kranz channel.  Also, you can hear my music played on radioairplay.com under Joshua Eli, my preferred performance name.  If you would like to see me play my songs, look at YouTube.com on the Joshua Eli Kranz channel.  Thank you to all of you for sending your good vibes. Thank you George Fullard, Ruth Marquez, Dino Anzoletti, Mikaela McKnightit, Margo Wright, Ayesha Babar, Jerry Mansfield, and Joseph Maresca!  Each of you listened to several of my songs. That’s the sort of thing that makes my day!!
