New improved version here: Lunar Eclipse (w/ tonestones, awigze, scofugate)

This is a new collaborative version. Steve Stone's (tonestones) vocals sets the nighttime mood and Andy Wigzell's (awigze) sax underscores the phases of this little tale. Many thanks Andy and Steve! This has been fun.

Lyrics
Lunar Eclipse

when the night begins to fold its arms
and the chill in the air has its way
i'm getting anxious to know
if you're ready to go
but i'm hoping you will stay

when the moon hides its face
it's dark maroon in outer space
if you think it's begun
in just a wink it's all undone

alley cat you follow me
so where you at? why can't i see?
every night you're on your feet
the same old sight a different street

when the night unfolds its hidden charms
and the chill in the air melts away
when the warm breezes blow
and we're getting to know
the lights across the bay

and the starlight shimmers in your eyes
with the milky way lighting the way
i suspect all this time
you've been reading my mind
there's nothing left to say

(c)2008 Bill Grundmann

you set such a gentle mood with those piano voicings. Steve and Andy fit the bill perfectly. Relaxed and dreamy. The string/voice pad at the 2:40 mark is about a cool as I've heard. (assuming that its a synth ;-) Kudo's to all

Johnny Mercer for the new millenium....
If they ever remake Blade Runner and need some sultry music for a bar scene, make sure they hear this....

I really like the upright bass line in this. I like the lyrics and vocal, too, and the sax tone and phrasing suits the song and mood very well...

Love this tune
What a joy to work on this tune! Love the changes and Steve's vocals were magic. I really like the earlier versions too and listened to them for inspiration. There are some tunes that I have collabed on that continually give me a smile and their melodies run thru my mind when I wake up in the morning. This is one of them. Bill, I know I have asked you more than once, but how do you come up with these great songs? I really enjoyed the whole collaborative process on this one feeling very connected and involved in in both you and Steve. There are more of these in the future I hope!

Bill, great tune
I love the way this turned out. Smokey indeed! These lyrics are outstanding. Andy's sax fits this perfectly. The piano and sax blend beautifully. I like what you did with the bass in the final mix. The mix is spot on, by the way.

I am very proud to have helped with this one. Outstanding job.

Simply awesome!
This is outstanding guys! It does seem to me like you left Andy standing out in the back alley... He doesn't seem to be in the same plane as the rest of the music and vocals... But still he sounds pretty cool back there!

Sweet work Bill, Steve, and Andy!

Just a pleasure to hear this song. Lean back and look at the ceiling the whole time.
Excellent work with the jazzy drums. I'm trying to do something like this for one song and it's almost impossible. Bass... well, excellent again. Hats off to the bassist for the solo around 3:00.
Steve's voice is just spectacular, just flowing with the song. And Andy's touch is always tasteful.
Oh, and what a chord progression!

I like...
... the laid back feeling of this "jazz." As good as anything I've heard in Jazz... Andy's sax was a perfect choice. Sweet!

Wow this is cool
there's something about the space in the mix that is so good - almost startling after the first verse. Then it just gets better and more interesting as it goes on. Great collab - excellent work from all involved.
