Salute to Andy w/awigze

Description
Salute translation: HEALTH, WELL-BEING
With all the music and relentless hours Andy has given us over the years, I thought I would give him a little backer in Ab minor to have a bit of freestyle fun with.--I sent him the track last year, with a deadline of 2013.
Going for that late 60’s improv feel again, and he sure did deliver the goods on the sax.

Thanks for all your dedication and your love for music Andy!! Cheers!!
The most Overworked and Underpaid MacJammer!

Andy: Sax
Bass: contact 6 jazz bass
Piano: kontakt 6 upright
Guitar: Guitar Rig--the old strat
Drums: Snare, Brushes, Hi Hats, Kick, and a bunch of microphones

The Art came from Andy’s as well while he stood in front of Birdland----The Jazz Corner of the World

Oooh! Goosebumps!
You guys are all at the top of your respective games. Andy.....I can hear your sax smirking on this one...smirking and winking at me. Scott...I adore your brush work. Whenever you work on a song using brushes I get chills. Pretty piano and intelligent bass. I love this song. It came together so well. Thanks for posting.

Salute to Andy
This one has a jam session type of feel to it. Drums sound great as usual, and the midi patches sound very realistic. Andy's sax is the sweet icing on the cake. Nice one!

This has a
Raymond Chandler private eye film noir feel to it...with the various string and reed instruments seeming to want to shoot off in random directions and the piano is holding it all together....nice one.

So pour one for me Joe and get the dame whatever she wants....within reason of course !

Cheers guys.

It does have that
improv live feel. Enjoyable and a ride on conveyor belt of the way-back when machine. When we finger popped to the down beat, uptown, sitting on those cabaret seats in some smoky filled club, drinking hard booze, listen'en to some soul cats playing out their lives on stage. Good going.

Salute
Jazz the way it was meant to be played. Sultry sweet sax solo. The rest of the instruments come and go - a little guitar riff here; little piano there...Scott your soundbed is perfect for Andy's playing. This was great - just remember that smoky lounges are bad for our health! Loved this - thanks!

Reminds me of the late-night jams at Mother's Coffee House in L.A. where guys would gather after their paying gigs and just jam together. You've captured that informal, what-the-he## free style, but this hangs together and swings like the best.

First...
No, not that kind: First, thank you Scott for thinking of a salute and for sending that cool backer to Andy; second, thank you Andy for being so cooperative and so good at not-sucking.
Wonderful smooth tune guys: thanks.

awigze said 2507 days ago (January 9th, 2011)
Richard
from someone who sucked a really long time at playing the saxophone, your words are taken with all of the humility I stored over those years. Even in this tune, I can and probably others do too, can hear where it could have been more theoretically 'musical', but here it is in all of its improvisational iniquities.

scofugate said 2507 days ago (January 9th, 2011)
On the backer
I took the Miles Davis (Kind of blue album) approach. It actually broke all the rules Quote from ^ Blumenthal, Bob. Liner Notes, Miles Davis at Newport 1958; Columbia/Legacy CK85202, 2001, p. 4.


"As was Miles Davis's penchant, he called for almost no rehearsal and the musicians had little idea what they were to record. As described in the original liner notes by pianist Bill Evans, Davis had only given the band sketches of scales and melody lines on which to improvise. Once the musicians were assembled, Davis gave brief instructions for each piece and then set to taping the sextet in studio."


All I told Andy was the Key Ab...with a pinch on minor here and there..He nailed it!!

awigze said 2507 days ago (January 9th, 2011)
ok, well
I just went back and looked at the project file and must admit that it was not all one take. The fist minute or so was the last take of 5 passes, the last 3 minutes was what remained of take 4. The parts that sucked were muted. What remains is the not-sucking part that Richard was referring too .... :))

I listened to it once then hit record. It works itself out.

Didn't mean to start anything: an attempt at humor. I really meant "not-sucking" as "blowing" : which you do awfully well.

no worries, my friend. took it as the compliment it was intended. There for a few days I was wishing people 'A new year that does not suck' so I have the reference in correct perspective. It just got me to thinking of the the many years that I was dreadful at the horn. I am very happy that I did not give it up.
