This recipe uses a local fruit wine, made from blueberry and cranberry. You may substitute another fruit wine if you like, or a light red. Anjou, Bosc and Bartlett pears all work well in this recipe, and should be just ripe or slightly under-ripe for best results.film The Martian 2015 online streaming

A progression that was the very first jam session that Mo and I had together with the drum machine, this groove became a really down and dirty Louisiana Blues – style tune when I recorded it at home in the fall of 2006.

Q.P. & a cold tea

For 20 years I worked as a chef,and the feel of a busy night’s service only ever interrupted by a VERY short break for quick pee and a cold tea (a beer delivered to the kitchen on the sly by our food runner in a teapot) is captured in this groove.

For this one, I was playing around with a riff featuring thirds and fourths, and felt it captured the feeling of driving on a summer day with the top down, enjoying the road.
