A description of the bands music.

Ted Della's Music is a regeneration of the jazz and the funk.
It features Ted Della's original compositions and also some jazz standards.

There are musical influences from many areas of the world which have been gathered together to create a new and funky but mellow sound.
The music is designed to give a sense of going on a journey. This journey involves travelling through a multitude of different landscapes, some familiar,some unfamiliar.

Some of the pieces reflect the ocean and the mountains in winter and summer and other awesome but peaceful environments. Others portray a much more urban scene and move into some interesting neighbourhoods, sometimes in the daytime but also at night when the city really comes to life.

The sound is always painted on a broad canvas with space for other musicians to add their own innovations and artistry and takes on the music. Different musicians are encouraged to add their many diverse personalities, punctuations and observations through their music in a similar way that they would when embarking on a journey. The focuses of nature and music are juxtaposed in a productive way to create this sound montage.

Musical influences and countries travelled to in the music include, Europe, America and Africa and also Brazil and the many different and varied islands of the Caribbean.
Calypso and Reggae rhythms can sometimes be heard in the drum and bass parts along with jazz, funk and soul.

All the arrangements incorporate sections that involve improvisation. In these sections the musicians are encouraged to tell the story of their lives through the music. The overall aim of the music is total well being for all.

Urban Fox

I saw a fox by the light of the moon,
The moon was hazy and crescent shaped,
That fox was hunting and hunting until daybreak.

As it ran through the gaps in the cars and the flats,
Feeling exhausted but on and on it must go
As dawn was coming and it would have to lie low.

Urban fox you seem to do ok,
I see you around every night and you wanna play,
Searching for what you can in the bins
And the glow from the bars seems to light your way

I saw a fox by the light of the moon,
He was whistling a strange and unfamiliar tune.
