Willow Weep For Me (with Lilmom and Awigze)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I've been longing to put a vocal over one of Lilmom's (Sylvia's) songs, but they were never in my key until I tried this one when she posted it. (Sylvia has the knack of coming up with those wonderful old world songs that everyone else has forgotten and giving them new life). Like I said I couldn't resist this one even though I'd only heard it a couple of times before many, many years ago. It's actually just a bit too high for me and of course I was in the throws of a croaky throat again, when I sang it, but it suited the song that I had to strain a little. I sent it to Sylvia who approved and I said I would ask Andy (Awigze) if he would put some Sax' on this for us, to which he agreed. Even though he's up to his neck in work, he came through with this and sent a great sultry track for me to use. I only got it this morning, but couldn't wait to put it all together, so I hope you all like this collab, which turned out to be one of my favourites since I came here.

Bass, Piano, Strings by Sylvia (Lilmom)
Sax' by Andy ( Awigze)
Vocals by myself Moviz

Do You Have Willows in Europe?
Wonderful collaboration. Though you're thousands of miles apart it's as if you're in the same (bar) room. I'll be at the bar. Anybody need anything?

Speaking of 'new life'....
Maurice, you and Andy have certainly brought this one to life! My goodness, I want to listen to this over and over again, even though I'm never quite satisfied with my own playing. You two made this just about perfect! It is now a brand new favorite! Thank you for being inspired to do this Maurice and Andy.

soulful singing
another great collab with lilmom.... always resonates with my sensibilities, Maurice, your vocals are so soulful on this one, as if you owned it. I liked the way you mixed the sax... not too much reverb but kept it at the bottom of the pan to let it cook down a bit. I , like you, I heard this song many years ago. Can remember it's soft melody and had not thought of it in years. But now it is something special.

Some sultry sexy sweetness passing thru that brass thang you're blow'n Sir Andy! Beautiful "lay me down", Sylvia! Some pertty wonderful sounds sweepn thru this joint you guys! Very nice! Thanks fer hangn it out for the take, cuz me took! Muchas gracias Dion

The consummate lounge singer
meets the sultry piano player and the cool cat sax guy.

Works for me you three. Beautiful sax work Andy, and Maurice, your vocal was just what the song needed it to be. Of course we all know about Silvia's excellent piano work.

Great, great track you guys, I love it.

Hi Dion
Sorry I couldn't answer your first comment, there was no reply button. Thank you so much for the very kind words... it was a great song to sing and though it sounds simple, there's a decent range in it and being a key to high didn't make it easy, but I think it was worth a little discomfort to my larynx to get the feeling into it. I too love those lush closing chords from Sylvia and helped along with Andy's sultry sax tones.
Now Steve Miller.... boy it's a while since I heard him too, but for you to have an album that's so old should not be legal LOL... now THAT'S old!, But you could sell it as an antique, Regards M

Blast from the past
I love hearing these songs I'd almost forgotten about. Thanks to Sylvia for bringing them back for us. Perfect instrumentation. Maurice, you are a natural crooner and do a great job of getting every ounce of feeling out of these lyrics. Andy, you should be charging us all for your sax work. What a collab!! :-)

Outstanding collab
Great performances all around in this tune - this is a piece where each artist clearly shines through with their own brand of magic - carefully played off each other - and makes the result impact a riveting listen. I now feel compelled to search for a smoky bar....

Cheers and congratulations,

Sylvia and I are of the same era so something just had to gel LOL.
