Rhythm Cargo
-Rhythm Cargo-  By Jesse J. Smith

Rhythm Cargo is my third album, and my first to feature guitar on every song. It was released in 2008, and carries over some of the jazz & electronica elements of my previous album, Royal Nights, but also adds a new element of guitar rock, making this probably my most diversified album.

My previous two albums were mainly recorded on my keyboard sequencer, then transfered over to my digital recorder/mixer, but this album was my first to mainly be done on the recorder. Breakz & Easy were both finished on the keyboard right after Royal Nights, but I went back to them and added the guitars while recording for Rhythm Cargo. Electric Gia was a take off of my previous song, Gia, from my earlier classical album, Madrona, and was way beyond my skill at the time, but this was an ambitious album, and not the only time I took a risk on it. Tunevent was a song I had started a year earlier on, but couldn't finish; not until a new guitar & amp - that was what I needed, (along with the decision to add keyboard to it), to get it done, and I still think it is one of my best songs. Other than that, all the songs were new, and were whatever genre they ended up being, with nothing off limits.

This album mainly happened this way because of two of my most important purchases; that new guitar & amp I mentioned. I already had a couple of good guitars (later turned great), and a high-end amp (later turned crap), but these two new ones fit me perfectly, and they are still the basis for my recordings today.

Album Description
Instrumental Rock, Jazz & Electronica.
This 3rd album contains a wide assortment of songs, and is quite diverse. Guitars & keyboards play an equal role, and tracks are just about evenly split between guitar-rock, jazz, and keyboard-electronica, with no compression or EQ changes (so EQ your stereo to flat when possible).

The second disc is set to the same track order, but with shorter song lengths, and changes the dynamics of the original album; creating an alternative version to the original that can be played as is, or used to mix your own version of the album. Also note, the single version of Tunevent is cut in a different order, making for an interesting variation.
