    Hey All,

    Here are a few clips, Both are live so the sound quality is not the greatest, but still useable

    The first is an original ballad. This clip is large and has me playing the head, the 1st solo, coming back on the bridge and then I blow for a while on the final vamp...

    Sequoia - Shawn Purcell


    The 2nd clip is an original of a drummer Tommy Giampietro I play with quite a bit. The head is trombone, but I have the first solo... You may need to bring up the volume on this one a bit. This tune reminds me a guitarist named David Doruzka, really nice changes especially for a drummer as the composer :D Trombone player is excellent, his name is Roy Agee...

    Long Lonely Nights Work

    Hope you enjoy... I'll post more in the next day or two.

    Seriously stunning playing. Full of emotion, and a nice melodic tune as well. Fantastic.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks so much for the compliments! Here is another clip that is the ending of a big band chart that I wrote. I am basically just blowing (or musically masturb$%@ing...) over a vamp at the end of this chart for several minutes. This one is much more distorted :) I'll post more music from these 2 concerts in a seperate post in the next day or 2...

    Minor Catastrophe (ending)

    Thanks again,

    Shawn

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for listening and for the compliments! i will post some more this weekend.

    Scott, I'll call you this weekend. Basically I own the Heritage 535 20th Anniversary model which comes stock with Duncan Antiquity humbuckers. I really like those pickups and was happy to have them come stock!

    Just fyi... Those clips were a 2005 Heritage 20th Anniversary 535 w/ Duncan Antiquities, CTS pots and RS guitarworks .022 caps... '64 Vibroverb Clone that I built from an early 69 Bandmaster Reverb with Mercury Magnetics Super reverb OT and Weber reconed JBL D130F. It's also got some great NOS preamp and rectifier tubes... A Keeley modded Baked TS9 and a Boss RV5 Reverb pedal. That's basically it...

    I'll post more soon!

    Hey There,

    Thanks for the compliments, I just did a radio show this past week. You can still stream the show at http://www.wpln.org/liveinstudioc/index.html for the next several hours... It's the "live in Studio C" show. I was doing a tribute to Grant Green, so I was in a setup to play accordingly...

    I will post the clips once they send me the CD!

    Very, VERY cool stuff, Shawn. I've read your bio, and you've definitely put the time and effort into your art.

    I only wish the Dallas area had a modern jazz scene like it once did. Very hard to find this kind of music here.
