Introduction

Welcome to the Let's Jam Show.  I'm Zonnie Toledo, the principal composer & arranger for all the music you'll find here. I'll take you behind the scenes of music and video productions;  from when I conceptualise a tune in my head to the process of producing the music to the final master.  I hear music in my head constantly, some influenced by other music, and some just come out of nowhere.  It is most gratifying hearing these music ideas in my head and tangibly hear it outside of me.  In that regard, it's quite a bit fun and I hope you also enjoy the music.  I've been composing music since my latter part of my junior year in high school. 
I started out with a small Casio 4-octave mini keyboard that my aunt bought me.  Since then, I've been accumulating music and recording gears.  It's quite an expensive hobby as you might imagine but it's all an investment, I figured.  Now, it's time to buckle down and make some music with you!  This show is an ambitiously fun edeavour and I hope that you'll enjoy the music and the adventure of music and video productions with me and my friends.  I'm also looking for other musicians and song writers to collaborate with. I'm also looking to discover the next diva or divO, for that matter.  If you are a versatile singer that can also write your own original songs and perhaps play an instrument, please do contact me and we'll see about fitting you in the show.  I have high ambitions for the Let's Jam Show and hope to take y'all with me in this fun-filled adventure.  Now, let's jam!  ~Z   zonnietoledo@thezstation.com.

21-Feb-10: Thank you for your visit.  I can't believe it has been almost a year since I've updated this page.  Lots of significant changes in my life - like getting married!  Too bad I can't play at my own wedding.  Scrambling like crazy and funds are quite low, so trying to figure out everything.  I'll be resuming this project after the wedding.  Lot's to catch up on.

SO...

EITHER you were led here by my "Bridal March" video on YouTube.  You can download a high quality mp3 of it for free using this link.  Unfortunately, I still don't have it scored on paper, yet.  My apologies...

OR, you found my new song "I Wanna Drive Just Like Jeremy Clarkson".  :-)    Here's a short scratch track that I did before I took my studio down.  I can't wait to get it back up so I can finish it!

08-May-09:
Let's Jam Project: Update on Sola Mi video.  Sequencing drum tracks & piano.  Also adding a C part to break the monotony of the song.   Notice I'm still using my 17 year old Commodore Amiga 3000 running Dr. T's KCS Level II sequencer!  There's nothing better!

I'm joined by my friends Ken Curtiss on the acoustic guitar and Jerby Baello on the electric guitar.  Ed Caliwag on the cams.   "Sola Mi" is essentially finished.  I just need lyrics and a female singer to complete the production.  I'll be opening this song for anyone who can add the lyrics.  Check back later for more details.

What Is

ABSTRACT
Let’s Jam! is an infotainment/talk/quasi-reality/video magazine web show about everything music & video productions.  It’s basically a music TV show about the music – what MTV should be.

The show was conceptualised last Christmas week 2007.  I made some proof of concept videos last March 2008. The videos I’ve made thus far were filmed “live”, unrehearsed and unscripted…  I originally intended to have a VLOG feel to the show but I’d definitely want to have an intelligible, TV-style format to the show.  I have high ambitions for Let’s Jam! and I hope to continue garnering hits and attract myriads of audience.

Empty Room
#200809.01
Duration: 4' 47"

  

An unplugged piano edition of an old song.  This is the very first time I sang this song with a piano.  It has now become my favourite piece to play (and sing and I'm not much for singing).

 


EMPTY ROOM LYRICS
Copyright © 1991 Zonnie Toledo
Remember when we used to laugh and play?  We thought that it would last forever; we were having such a good time.  Yeah, we had our share of tears; But we've always pulled through together; nothing can take us away.  But now it's all over, it's time to end the game, 'cause it's all over.  An empty room, we've all been turned to shadows, an empty room, an empty room, we're only memories for tomorrow, an empty room.  I can hear our voices whisper in the wind, as memories haunt my mind, our laughter echoes from the walls of this...  Empty room (x2), I've turned into an empty room, an empty room.  But now it's all over; it's time to close my eyes and dream about you, 'cause you'll always live inside this... Empty Room (repeat to fade).
