Description
Many thanks to Ben [Dj French Toast] Damien [damiengh] and Patrick [Outtaorbit] for helping this project come to completion. The musical sketch Ben and I started with changed as work progressed. The original sketch was about loss to violent crime and those left behind. This sound bed has been waiting to be taken off the shelf since late 2008. When Ben sent his fantastic lyrics everything changed directions for me as far as topic. Thirty nine men here in Texas alone have been found innocent of crimes they did not commit due to the efforts of a volunteer group of lawyers and students. Unfortunately many of them have spent much of their adult lives behind bars and will now face huge re adjustment issues.
"What you do for the least of these ......".

Production Notes:

Dj French Toast : Lyrics and vocals
damiengh: Horns
Outtaorbit: Lead guitar

Other instruments: Yamaha Electronic Drum Kit, Rogue Bass Guitar, WK-1630 Keyboard
Drums recorded on KorgD3200 Board with final mix in Pro logic and GB.

Mixed for head phones or not ...obviously always a challenge to decide which. BTW ... does the first player sound better than the Quicktime Player? I nearly think the first player is a bit better ... too much to contemplate.

Final notes: This is dedicated to "compassion" and those folks who do not quit seeking right. It is also with a smaller nod dedicated with many thanks to Spitlogic and Dj French Toast for unlocking my ears to their musical magic. Ben was a huge help in setting the tone for this piece. I had some trepidation about approaching Ben and Damien. They are two huge talents here but both were amazing to work with and offered some brilliant performances and advice. Be advised the opening track includes one section of Logic Loops. This turned into a wonderful mixed media project and was a total blast to work on.

Finally .... Patrick has listened to the rough piece for going on 6 months and didn't kick the cat once. My brother you remain the best.

Side Note : I have discovered from Mason with Tiny Man Inside that their vocalist Huy Dao is Case Director on this project. Sincere thanks and prayers to Huy for fighting for the rights of those unable to fight for themselves.

WOW - jack et al - this is very very impressive. Damien's sax is awesome on this, and these various effects i'm hearing are WILD (in the best possible way). Very cool vocals, lyrically fascinating, and ORBIT - your guitar rips! Jack, you are such a master at pulling things all together and creating these incredible musical adventures. GREAT WORK!

I just read
"The Innocent Man" by John Grisham. It's about how several men were railroaded in Ada, Oklahoma. One man might have a life if most of it wasn't spent in prison and on Death Row. The Innocence Project has been cloned in several states, now. Of course, DNA evidence has been instrumental in proving innocence.
About the music; Yeah, you guys did it. Powerful. Thanks.

re: production
well, mmmm...you are way more talented than me, so here is my two pennies worth of production skills. i first look at what i got, a grave subject and talented artists. the rest i would do off the cuff, eg. layering, solos, interaction between layers, mastering...Your skills seem to be embedded in musical theory, your creativity makes the structure and content stand out among a lot of skillful, though creatively speaking crappy artist (no pun intended) or should I say less authentic/ less convincing brothers and sisters. anyway, i stand in awe, as i said, awesome. lisanne says hi! love, marc

justice
it is dangerous to choose incorrectly. to let the guilty go free. to imprison the innocent. the music creates appropriate angst against injustice. saxophone is superb. words explain the bum rap with conviction. a chilling tale. it is hoped that a jury is intelligent and just. 0x0

Fantastic mixture
of styles that work brilliantly. I remember hearing just a snippet of this and being very impressed. The final work is stunningly creative. The beautiful sax playing and effects fit perfectly and Benny's lyrics are superb as always. Great guitar. Not to forget the great drum track too. But above all the inspiration for the concept of it and the execution of it is majestic. Well done Jack.
Definite download. Thanks.

Just what music should be
Thought-provoking, with a pertinent message. Damien, incredibly evocative/emotional sax, Patrick, excellent guitar work leaning beautifully toward David Gilmour, Ben, you always make me say "I don't like Rap, except this is great", and Jack, as always, awesome project and dedication to detail. Kudos to all, and make sure to ACCEPT your jury duty notices and represent us all with integrity. I remain convinced that no justice system can be 100% perfect, and although ours is pretty good, *we* should ALWAYS be vigilant and try to make it better. Let's all help the Innocence project.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Many thanks Dragon ..
I am seriously trying to pay a bit more time on tracks so thanks for the nod. Every element in this project was brought by folks who I believe represent the best here in what they do and I was fortunate to have all 3 say yes. Excellent underscore on the jury thing.... I hate them ...but we are important. Eduard ... from all of us ... Thank You.

Outstanding effort by all Jack
This says it in a way you won't find on the radio. Benny's lyrics and vocal are great as always. Love your treatment of this musically, there;s so much tension in it. Patrick's Guitar sounds wonderful and damiengh's horn work is beyond belief.

Fantastic track in all ways with a wonderful mix Jack. Kudos to all of you for this enlightening piece.

thank you for another positive nod and wonderful comment. Several years back ... a hometown man was convicted on a ridiculious robbery charge and spent quiet a while in prison [Lionel Geeter] and when I read an article on the Innocence Project this summer in Texas Monthly ... a grain was planted that these guys watered and matured. Thanks Ed

Quite an amazing piece of work
You are all to be congratulated, not only for your musical/lyrical contributions, but also for the courage and principle of fighting for the innocent in general and helping to publicize this project in particular. This should get you gold stars in St.Peter's book.

Rebsie said 3140 days ago (March 14th, 2009)
Rough justice
This is a topic close to my heart ... we have a similar problem in the UK with wrongful convictions, which makes you realise it can happen to anyone. Only this week a man is due to be released from jail after serving 27 years for a crime he didn't commit (while the real killer remains free). What's really awful is that (in this country at least) when innocent people are released they're not entitled to the rehabilitation assistance they would get if they were real criminals ... they are literally turfed out onto the street with no money, no paperwork, no psychological support or counselling ... many have nowhere to go and end up living rough on the streets, and/or cracking up from the stress of trying to adjust. It's sickening.

All part of a system which doesn't want to acknowledge that the law and the justice system can be wrong.

Anyway, that's my rant over. This is a very fine piece of work indeed ... powerful in its conception and superb in its production. Much respect to you all.

Stunning lyrics, Benny. And a vocal performance to match.

This is so cool and deep and hard and sly and tough and real and simply amazing. Everything works so improbably well together from the samples to the vox to the guitar and sax and didgeridoo and really the sheer imagination and adventure - it's just too much. Great work everyone.

Great Sound-Art
What a felicitous blend of sounds.
The sax and the synth-sounds go so very well together. This might not be obvious in the beginning.
But you did it, bravo!!
Wonderful rockin' track - and you dared to do something really new, bravo!
The longer one listens the more unexpected things happen, including the rapping plus the didgeridoo - and all the ambient voices.
The whole music is unique, original and full of fantasy. Breathtaking!!

You know I am a fan of yours and have such deep respect for your amazing talent ... so ... this is a wonderful treat to have such nice comments on the project. The melting of different styles and genres evolved as the project matured and is due to some major talent from 3 amazing artists. I worried the piece might be too long but I hope each "picture" flows well ... I can still listen to it front to end so that is OK .... Hats off to Benny, Damien and Patrick ... and a very special Thank You to you for th listen and kind comments.

Quite simply...
...the best thing I've heard on MacJams for a long time -

Everything, from the lyrics and concept, to the instrumentation to the production is top notch -
Congratulations on pulling this off -

Sometimes it occurs to me that: it's incredible that in this world there are people making incredible music like this and just giving it away for free, while at the same time the music industry throws money and time at such incredibly bland, meaningless crap - it's a strange world.....just thought!

Great work
This is classic material. I love the way all of the different elements come together. Very well organized spit frenchy. The instrumentation is so full and the way it varies during different points keeps the listener's attention.

Well done for all parties involved.

Wow
Jazz meets rap. Very interesting. Love the sax effects after the first break. Can't think of the instrument but it is compared to australian music. Nice touch. This definitely is a different approach to justice and the holes in the system. This is the reason I love the musicians here at macjams. The rulebook gets thrown out the window creating origonal awe inspiring music. Great job to all!

Overwhelmingly, empathetic and, intensely so...
On the first of many listens, it just kinda rendered me lacking with right space and time... It also left me lacking most of me... But more-so, you guys left me curiously starring at a seeming, infinite number of walls and reeking of humble pudding. Took huge efforts to gather "me" up back to, "together" again. "Together", but not in any way resembling how I came... Ya see, I've been writing on racism and the idea that it doesn't exist! How could it... race doesn't even exist!... Invented as a way to categorize people of a particular geographical area by color for further sorting of, their different worths/value(s) ... A filling system gone (and that still goes), way wrong ... Feel free to throw your face into an odd contortion of sorts in response to this, all my friends, black and white do anytime this conversation arises. I be black ya know, but "I've never been a victim of racism"

innocence project
a remarkable effort. You guys sound great, and I credit that in as much to everyone's talent (tons) but the awesome job you did with the mix. I believe this also to be a new (very cool) genre unto itself :-) which is worth 10's right there.

TG for the project itself, and the selfless souls like Huy who fight this fight.

WAY TO GO
the loaded with ambience intro was a real pleasure to witness.
i have to say Damien has outdone himself in the sax department - he simply shines here. real nice percussion - it's GOOD! EMPTY HOLE IN MY SOUL IS ABOUT TO BUST - now that's an image! very powerful.
i like that digeridoo-kinda sound goin on. when the guitar breaks out in last third, OH YEAH. very interesting, gentlemen - i really enjoyed my earful.
