Come on in - here's the place where I'm going to let you listen to some of those wonderful solos that
your day! I will add sound clips now and then so keep coming back and "recharge your batteries" with new energy
For some of the sound bites you may need RealMedia player which is a free
But this is not the only place where you will find sound clips - I will put some of
them elsewhere in the different sections of Jay's homepage if I feel they would fit in
better there. Please note that all of the sound bites are in low audio quality to make them less heavy to
download. So to
truly enjoy Jay's music you need to get the real thing.
Check out Jay Graydon's ever growing discography!
My absolute favorite - the solo of "THE ENDING" from Steve Kipner's "Knock The Walls Down" (1979), which
could go on forever and ever in new exquisite harmonies would have been a great start, but this outstanding solo is
about 2,5 minutes (or more) long so it would take like ages to download. And it devours K's!
And to shorten it would be impossible as you know we have this saying among us "You don't chop off a Graydon
solo!" so go and buy the album instead! It's a rarity but you may find it on a record
sale. I did....... a couple of years ago, a promotion copy wrapped in plastic and never opened! Am I lucky or what?!
THE ENDING But luckily things develop
on the net and now this musical masterpiece is possible to download even with a slow
connection. Yipppeee!! Use the free RealMedia player
to enjoy THE ENDING guitar solo.
Here are some of my other favorite solos:
PEG A list like this must of course include the PEG solo from the Steely Dan
album "Aja" (1977). Jay was the seventh! guitarist to play for Donald Fagen and Walter Becker of the
Dan. Ever Becker himself tried, but Jay was the only one who could please these demanding gentlemen. (250 K .au file)
STRANDED Here's the tough and really breathtaking solo of STRANDED
from "Airplay" (1979). WOW! (278 K .au file)
ROXANN The solo of ROXANN from "Airplay For The Planet" (2002). Painfully
beautiful! (211 K .au file)
SHE JUST CAN'T MAKE UP HER MIND Another outstanding solo of this guitar
magician from "Airplay For The Planet" (1993). (284 K .au file). You can also listen to the
wire-choir (175 K .au file) at the fading out of this song.
HOLDIN' ON TO LOVE Now dig this piece of ear candy!! Aggressively
perfect harmony blend from "Airplay For The Planet" (1993) (170 K .au file).
ON THIS CHRISTMAS EVE by Joe Graydon (243 K .au file). Jay's
Christmas gift to all of you is one more bite of the beautiful Christmas song his dad Joe has
written and is singing, and which Jay arranged and produced in 1996. It is not yet released so this is only
for you my friends! Here you go - as an extra bonus for you Jay is singing one line in the
bridge which falls between the 4 part harmony ensemble.
NOTHIN' YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT (55 K RealMedia file) One of
Jay's own favorite guitar solos, as well as mine. Intelligent, subtle harmonies from the
legendary album "Airplay" (1979)!
Classy guitar solo from the Japanese album ELT (292 Kb
RealAudio file). Yet another of Jay's innovative and exquisite winding harmonic structures...
The album was released in Japan August 1999 and this song has a Japanese title only, which I
will not even try to write down, but it is
performed by Tommy Funderburk in plain American-English. Hey guys, this sounds just like good
old AIRPLAY in a 90's version.
