Description
Anne emailed me one day during a collaboration with Terry on the song,
Table Five (Collab. w/Sisters, Ziti, Jiguma, Awigze, Kevmikwa) by davisamerica2. She had this song that she posted in October of '09 and asked if I would arrange a Tenor sax part. Always impressed by The Sisters' clarity and production style, I of course said yes. Anne was gracious enough to let me share custody of this song and present it on my own profile. This is one of those songs that when playing with, ya just squeeze the sax a little and a song comes out.
So I gladly and proudly resubmit and present, What About Me?

Original Version of What About Me?

Cliff Stanton: Alto Sax

Lyrics
what about me?

it's always what you want
it's you we have to please
listen up this is my memo to you

well honey what about me
i can do it without you
i'm setting myself free

i've had enough you're not the boss of me
i've had enough see you later
i've had enough you're not the boss of me
i've had enough of you

what about me /what about me/what about me/woah
what about me /what about me/what about me/woah

i've had enough.....

what about me/what about me/what about me
what about me/what about me/what about me

it's all about you
honey we're thru
it's all about you
honey we're thru

Terry
You know, Terry, I blame you for all of this. What a great song to begin with. It's like I said in the description that it was a song that you just squeeze a little and a song comes out... its like that... What a great collaborator Anne is. I agree with doing more collabs! I am sure we will!

First off - this is a great song -
I love the changes in the rhythm section - and then the everything else is so good. And THEN - along comes the unmistakable joy and genius of the wiggy sax man. Great post.

hrm...
the song itself is great, but what's up with the panning? I dunno, it doesn't jive with me. Everything else is damned perfect, though! Just, the production kind of distracts me from enjoying the song's nuances. It almost seems to take away its funk energy, it's too soft and yeah, too panned. Damn, brilliant performances from everyone though...
