Percussion Music for Dance Class

by Ray McNamara

 Features 10 long tracks of percussion in Odd Meters  

Ray To Go 2 CD Cover  

"This is the much anticipated companion CD to the original "Ray To GO".  Ray To Go 2 (Odd Times) fills a void with dance music of varying meters.  
All of these "Odd Time" selections are inprovisations based on movement I have encountered throughout my years as  a dance musician.  
All of these tracks are recorded organically with no edits to preserve the spontaneity of each piece.  
I hope to show that music in odd time signatures can be heard comfortably and be fun to move to.  
I have used varyong instrumentation to keep the listener engaged.  
The meter and the subdivisions should be clear throughout.  However, please give a good listen to the pieces to familiarize yourself." ... Ray McNamara
