Sucka Free (Music by Angela Hope)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Well I heard Angela Hope's "Sucka Free" and I just imagined an older studio musician giving advice to the wet young newcomer about 'the business'. I did a quick voice over (with some transforming vocal magic) and this is what popped out. Now I offered it back to Angela, but she insisted That I post it, song unheard, so to speak (what an act of faith). So here it is.

Damn groovy
That's the funkiest thing I've heard in quite some time. The bass underpins everything nicely and the sax lifts it where it fits in beautifully. The vocals are very earnest and you can just see the older musician sat on the stool in the studio, passing on his words of wisdom. If I hadn't known this came from Mr Schedra I'd never have put two and two together. Definite download for those times I want to strut as I walk!

Walk the Talk
Angela, great piece of smooth music there... and Stephen, is there NOTHING you cannot do? Your concise distilled words, interpolated from Angela's title alone, are heartfelt and warmly offered, not overly dramatic or stilted, absolutely perfect, with an amazingly realistic tinge of dialect. Sheesh! What a great collab this is, and as always, so generously offering your talents, both of you.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Wise words
It's a dog eat dog world out there and talented musicians can really be taken advantage of. This is great advice for anyone. Stephen, is there any genre you can;'t do?? ;-)

Thanks to all!
Thank you everyone for your comments and listens. Really, though, I am a product of this community and all of your service. This is not false humility, but in fact the outcome of being in relationship with great musicians, willing to share, and encouraging by correction and encouragement. This as well as the core of wonderful human beings who can learn and grow with one another despite our differences.

To this song in particular, and for Angela; although I had an instant idea, when I first heard it, I didn't realize the form or content of what would come out. I decided just to turn the mic in and try something. Well, as I began, there was an earnest desire to reach this younger generation soul and pass the mantle so to speak. When the "test" was done, I realized that there was nothing left to say. He had spoken, soul to soul, and then he moved on, probably never to pass this way again.
