Listen & Enjoy

Come on in - here's the place where I'm going to let you listen to some of those wonderful solos that will brighten your day! I will add sound clips now and then so keep coming back and "recharge your batteries" with new energy from great music......

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", 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?!

.mp3 audio fileTHE ENDING - But luckily things develop on the net and now this musical masterpiece is possible to download even with a slow connection. Yipppeee!!!

 

Here below a few of my other favorite solos:

mp3 audio file PEG A list like this must of course include the PEG solo from Steely Dan album AJA. Jay was the seventh! (7th!) guitarist to play for Donald Fagen and Walter Becker of the Dan. Even Becker himself tried, but Jay was the only one who could please these demanding gentlemen. In this video Jay explains how the PEG solo should be played.
mp3 audio file STRANDED Here's the tough and really breathtaking solo of STRANDED from the legendary AIRPLAY. album. BTW this is the album that allegedly started the Westcoast music genre. WOW!
mp3 audio file I'M A CAMERA Jay produced Marc Jordan's masterpiece BLUE DESERT in 1979, which has also been re-released a few times over the years. This album has soooo many great songs with amazing guitar work, and the song I'm A Camera is one of my favorite Jay Graydon guitar solos ever. Fun, clever and innovative!
mp3 audio file NEW YORK TOWN Jay plays a brilliant guitar solo on this song New York Town by the STATE COWS, included on their debut album. He also plays an awesome solo on their second album and both albums received rave reviews stating e.g. "They totally nailed the classic Westcoast sound but they have a unique style all their own". - Inside MusiCast.
mp3 audio file ROXANN The delicious solo of ROXANN from Airplay For The Planet. Painfully beautiful! A live version of this song, among other top-notch songs, is included on the Jay Graydon All Stars 20th Anniversary Edition - a 4 DVD package from the Japan/Scandinavia Tours 1994 and 1996 with documentary bonus material.
mp3 audio file SHE JUST CAN'T MAKE UP HER MIND Another outstanding solo of this guitar magician from Airplay For The Planet. Here you may also enjoy the wire-choir in the fading out of this song.
mp3 audio file HOLDIN' ON TO LOVE Now dig this piece of ear candy!! Aggressively perfect harmony blend from Airplay For The Planet. You will also find a live version of this song on the Jay Graydon All Stars 20th Anniversary Edition - a 4 DVD package from the Japan/Scandinavia Tours 1994 and 1996 with documentary bonus material.
mp3 
audio fileIT WILL BE ALRIGHT The three part harmony guitar solo - AKA the wire choir - from the song IT WILL BE ALRIGHT. One of the fabulous classics from the AIRPLAY album.
.mp3 
audio fileNOTHIN' YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT One of Jay's own favorite guitar solos, as well as mine. Intelligent, subtle harmonies from AIRPLAY. Jay is also the lead singer on this song! The latest re-release of the AIRPLAY album is available from Japan.
mp3 audio file"Never Forget Why I Love You" Classy guitar solo from the Japanese album ELT - Songs From L.A. Yet another of Jay's 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, roughly translated it is "Never Forget Why I Love You" - performed by Tommy Funderburk.
