The Scenic Sessions - Volume One (chilled organic rock)

As many a friend can attest to, I've been threatening to begin a mix series called "Scenic" for years. In 2006, I was on the road with Soulive, driving through Colorado. Making my first trip from Denver to Aspen (in the Fall, no less), I had the iPod programmed with many of the tunes found in this mix.

Musically, this one is chilled-out rock, or rock-based.

To be honest, after selecting and mixing records for this long, I'm less and less hung up about labels, and "what it means". As always, the goal is not to think too much, don't f&%$ with the records too much, just program them, and present them in a way that honors their spirit, and make them beautiful parts of a whole (mix).

Looking strictly at the artist lineup, many of you may be surprised to find U2, Seal & Tears For Fears. Throw that notion out your window, and focus on the overall vibe of the mix.
